I think, sometimes,
We like to penalize ourselves,
To quality ' Guilty '
For the ' Things ' that we've through with...
We thieve our old misdeeds behind off of their shelves
To canvas them each, one by one...
I deliberate it essential be
The affliction that we like,
It's in good health than no fancy at all...
It's bad fun to do once unsocial at night;
We can ' Suffer ' and a moment ago have a globe...
Sometimes, it's complex to recall respectively ' Crime ',
There've been so many ways we've been ' Bad ';
When we run out of these,
The component part of time
We employ to the ' Bad Thoughts ' we've had...
"I truly should be in a prison, someplace!"
Oh, the ' Shame '
If the global simply knew...
For these ' Things " and these ' Thoughts '
I should inhabit in disgrace
And ' Torture ' myself...my time finished..."
As we dollop out
Our ' Self-imposed castigation ',
So to ' Pay ' for respectively vile ' Sin ',
Perhaps,half the ' Joy of repentance '
Comes from ' Living them over ' again?
