Full Of Stains And Bath In Guilt

This is Poetry in letter form to a friend whom has been hurt and betrayed. This poetry signifies a plea for mercy and forgiveness with the Hope the offender would be accepted back. I tried to make it as simple as possible bringing out its meaning so explicitly. No rhymes, no manipulation of words. Just a simple Poem in Letter form. I hope you enjoy it.

I am restless and weak

The world is so void to me,
even in the Light, I long for darkness,
happiness has seized to exist,
and peace no where to be found.

The burden is just too much for me,
bearing it is putting me into total wreck.
I am completely restless and weak,
depressed like never before and full of shame

I have derailed and gone astray

I no longer know if my body, soul and spirit co-exist,
or maybe its just one acting in place of three,
because it seems to me, my spirit is dead,
and my soul, detached from my being.

I know I have acted foolishly,
I have derailed and gone astray.
I feel too inferior to mention your name,
and grossly unworthy to imagine your face.

I am full of stains and bath in guilt
and I wonder what came over me.
it was like a force I could not resist,
like a battle of two principalities in my mind
but all the same I did it and not proud.

My reputation has vanished

Though, I know it hurts so much,
and disappointment is an understatement.
Your trust for me, I have betrayed
and your confidence, have I shattered.

My reputation has vanished
and dignity very insignificant.
I know I cannot ask for all these Qualities from you.
But one thing I ask is for your forgiveness.

I come on bent knees

We are humans and mistakes are inevitable,
I have crossed your path and stepped on your toes.
But yet, you can still find a way, somehow to forgive me.

To err is Human but to forgive is divine.
I have learnt from my mistakes,
I have straightened my path,
and I am very much ready to make it up to you.

I come on bent knees and weary eyes,
just for you to show mercy.
All i need from you, is to hear you say
"Welcome back, oh! thou beloveth friend"

This is my 10th Poem here on wikinut and the whole of my Life. So here are the 6th to 9th Poems of mine.
1. A Shoulder Above Its Neck And Fame Above Its Name
2. Beautiful Consists Of More Than One Colour
3. Smell The Silverware And Taste Its Glory
4. Meekness: A personality Already going Extinct

And as for the first 5 Poems, you can find them here
Thank you!

To forgive is divine I forgive thee,
And in love release, set you free.
For the actions of past I cannot condone,
But for loss of friendship I forever mourn.

Can past be rewritten I don't know,
What you reap is what you do sow.
With hand on heart I forgive the pain,
But it was learning that wasn't in vain.

I walked through sands, the bitter the sweet,
In moments in time I cried discreet.
No one to turn to but tears in eyes,
Angel of Creation, came, heard my cries.

Dried my tears and gave me the kiss,
Wings to the future never ever to miss.
To feel the love resonating on high,
Holding me close whenever I want to cry.

I forgive you with a rose on breast,
Ask for the forgiveness from the Upper Crest.
For the Rose of Adonis is filled with love,
I resonate that passion flowing from Above.

Your words ring very true to me If we could understand the reason why a cruel deed was done but if our hurt comes from those who do not care and our reaction is justified, why are we wasting our time. I reacted with hurt and anger when something cruel was done to me and I wanted it to be put righ and I did not hear a word of regret when I apologized for my reaction. I was left with more grief that I had in the first place.

Forgiveness really depends on the severity of the offense, but if you can forigve than do so for friendships are hard to find.

A writer so diversified isn't Human at all... You have to specify where you actually come from Dr. Funom Makama.

Funom doesn't have to do anything. There are some of us who have the knowledge to write on different subjects and I enjoy that he is able to diversify. I don't understand the 'being Human' comment.

Thanks a lot Ivy.... Its nice to read your comments on my page. How are you? I have written some comments on ur pages, telling you how much I missed you. I've been quite busy these days and the winter is not helping

I also do not understand the "being human" part.
