explaining solitude

explaining solitude

A Poem by ace
"

been having sleepless nights lately so tried to write it out

"
forgive me father for i have sinned
i dont even know where to begin
it has been many years since my confession
avoiding everyone has been my obsession

i shut  out all human contact
and have so many words to retract
please help me with thy grace
to put my burned bridges back in place

im scared i will sin more
just as i did before
please god give me what it takes
to learn from my mistakes

i dont want to be an exile anymore
i want to live like i did before
with friends to talk to every night
even if sometimes it ended in fights

knowing that i had a place to belong
i miss it so much now that its gone

Wow. This is an awesome poem. The first stanza is my absolute favorite part - the interweaving of the beginning prayer of the Sacrament of Confession with personal statements in a way that flows and rhymes so well is really cool and powerful. I also love the lines "please help me with thy grace / to put my burned bridges back in place." This is a deeply personal and relatable poem. I wish you the best in dealing with whatever inspired this, and I will be praying for you! Nicely done!
