E.M.’s Random Word Prompt #104
Seeking absolution from crimes
I’ve not committed
Yet crimes levied against me
by the naive and misinformed.
Seeking absolution from this disease that has me in its clutches, But one that I did not ask for not now and not ever.
Seeking absolution from heartache
sorrow, grief, anger, and despair
Protection for an unguarded heart
that’s never learned how to heal.
Seeking absolution for the innocent,the troubled, oppressed and wounded. For those serving and yet to serve and those brave souls who have fallen.
