sonnet

byManusNigrumPoet©

Care not for the trace of life that is immoral
for in said life can bring to bare such toil
how then must one begin a lie to live
that in a lie, its end to mend must reach
where in the wrongs come forth to raise past scars
how then can man amend the wrongs of one
cannot the favor cast over him judge
is this not life where sin is gray on gray
one who sins can no more be judge and jury
for my sins no others can raise their fury
and judge with open eyes and open minds
think then first of your own sins and then judge
so when the gavel falls, you will know truth
that i am innocent of sin and youth
