The Wrong Thing

How do you feel

Was it a bubble

Was it revelation

Spirit or embryo

Both stir the same bowel

Both life changing

Both everlasting


You can’t conjure life

Yet cast upon your mother’s breast

Suffering and joy. That is not your own. 

Can you kill a spirit

Can you kill a not-yet-breath

Can you kill a faith

You should be crucified for such a thought

And yet you were

And yet you are

And still 

you will be

Which side of eternity

Will you have to endure

They say

There is forgiveness 

Do you feel forgiveness?

They say it defines a life

They say it refines the work

They say it reminds you

Of the wrong thing 


Forgiveness is the wrong thing

No matter how you feel
