Personal Sin


Not original sin, if one is a proponent of such a thing, but something just as bad, a sin against one's self. This type of sin, or evil, or what ever you would like to call it is the root cause of other applications of sin and/or evil. And one can easily say that a sin is not evil, but evil could very well be a sin. Even doing some forms of good can be a sin (as I mentioned 3 or so posts a go in 'Goodness and Right Action'). Still, the type of festering that allows such failings creates an attitude that can lead a soul down a darker path. And whatever path you may call at, a soul in such a dark place recovers only with extreme difficulty, time, and on occasion, a little hope.

This all leads to a relatively new piece, similar to one called 'Disquiet Notions' posted sometime ago, except this is decidedly more personal.

'Personal Sin'

Make me a dream...

Purging this curse of memory.
Let time forget
These sins I have borne,
Their stain...
Entombed within the deepening dark
Of my soul.

Give me some respite...

Cleansing this fire of madness.
Let me forgive
All that I have known,
My choice...
Concealing such burdens beneath the well
Of my heart.

Make me a dream...

If only to sleep...
Mayhap, even forget.

I've always prided myself on my diction

And using a thesaurus is cheating, lol.
