Sunday Sonnet!


When past demeanours rear their sleepy heads,
Occasioning embarrassment’s advent,
Spectres of doom, that ev’ry mortal dreads,
Insidiously themselves to us present;
No matter escapades to be unknown
Save to oneself and others now long gone,
Yet, ego deems that they are cast in stone
Awaiting resolution at some dawn;
Humility unlocks the door to life,
Presenting open hearts to ventilate,
Thus obviating lingering inner strife,
To leave us in a prior halcyon state;
Though penalty for long by guilt be sought,
Forgiven sins by God are soon forgot!

At last,
No turning back,
When all is said and done,
What is said cannot be unsaid,
And what is done can never be undone,
Humble pie needs to be eaten,
Lest guilt our lives pervade,
Pray boundless grace
And peace prevail,
At last!
