ON THE SUBJECT OF REPARATIONS

 

 How can you make reparations

For a soul that you destroyed

For a body that you shamed

For a heart that you broke

So brutally, how can you

Make reparations, for the

Promises that you didn’t keep

Those hands that you left

In the lurch, in a dark alley

For the hearts that you stepped

On, and how do you even

Compensate for the loss of

the sense of being, the pride

We take in being human beings

You cannot atone for these sins

You went too far and struck too

Low, there’s no way you can

Ask for forgiveness, for it cannot

Be given to someone like you
