Rectified. A poem.

I wish that I could rectify
all my copious sins and lies.
I wish I could rebuild the trust
I stole from you with prurient lust.
I wish I could remove the stain
upon my family’s blessed name.
I wish I could reset this life,
changed so paltrily now to strife.

But I cannot rectify these things.
And so I must abide with them;
regret, it seems, my only friend,
goes ever on, until my end.

      1. I hope that link works okay. Because my book’s title is similar to so many others you have to scroll a long way down the list when you search manually! Thanks for wanting to buy my book—much appreciated 🙂
