Sunday Scribblings

On reflection:

VANITY VANQUISHED

Forgive me
For my improprieties
Inappropriate actions
A host of deeds
I can’t justify
Hear my plea
This petition is a cry
From my conscience, stained with guilt
I am human
But that’s no excuse
In my life
I’ll endeavour to make use
Of my powers of reason,
Imagination,
In order to prove
My value
I am not trying to soothe
My pain, brought on by knowledge
Of Mother Earth
And her influence
Repentance
Combined with common sense
And critical appraisal
Are my penance.
In my assessment
Of no worth
Such meagre reimbursement
For the staunch stability
Of the one friend
I take for granted
