A Poem by Chris

Bless me father for I have sinned.

For her life I did rescind.


In my secret life I am a fighter.

In my secret life I am a writer.

I wear a mask to seem kinder,

Still doing as I please despite her.


She said I would never amount to anything.

She said I would sit back and do nothing.

"I have proven I can do something,

And in my world I am king.


I won't listen to what you have to say,

I won't let your plauge stay,

By the end you better pray,

I'll send you to your god today!"


I told her I would be back.

I told her I would attack.

I stood there letting the rage stack.

"Now a life is what you'll lack.


Little did you know I can fight.

Little did you know I can write.

Both talents kept from your sight,

That changes tonight."


Her death was pure poetry.

Her death let me be free.

In her blood I wrote for all to see,

"You revealed the killer in me."

Author's Note

So I sat back and thought, has a murderer ever confessed his actions to a church?
What would that sound like? Well this wasmy conclusion.

This is one of my favorite things that you've written =]

I was actually kind of surprised by how violent and dark it seemed, until I read your note at the end: then it made a lot more sense XD

So this poem tells the story of a killer's confession, but it has more depth than just a grisly confession because it goes into the killer's motivation and his feelings of guilt and conviction. Apparently this girl that he killed had been someone who was constantly doubting him and putting him down, and in my mind, it must have been someone close to him like his mum or girlfriend or something, because he seems to have craved this person's approval.

The last stanza was my favorite; I loved every line of it and it closed out the poem perfectly. Good job :)
