Making Amends
intract

In the shallow waters
 1
i am drowning
 2
caught in a perpetual whirlpool,
 3
spiralling downward.
 4
I am falling beneath the waters of
 5
burden that weigh heavy,
 6
my future is
 7
being tugged and pulled to
 8
reconcile  past actions.
 9
The Light leads me to
 10
make amends,
 11
to right the hurt.
 12
Any chance of happiness
 13
relying on this
 14
one simple reckoning.
 15
We cannot deny
 16
for in hiding
 17
we only deceive ourselves, but
 18
worse we delay the inevitable,
 19
further hurting those
 20
we love and cherish the most.
 21
No good deed goes
 22
without being recognized
 23
but it should be done
 24
without a desire for reward.
 25
It will take courage,
 26
it will be painful
 27
and indeed it will try, but
 28
once you accept your responsibility,
 29
with honesty,
 30
are willing to admit your blame
 31
without making excuses,
 32
without blaming circumstances
 33
or other persons involved.
 34
If you're willing to
 35
accept and own
 36
all you have ever done.
 37
Then and only then
 38
can you become whole, for
 39
without this realization
 40
you can never find God,
 41
and the waters will
 42
overcome you
 43
forever imprisoning you
 44
in  shallow waters
 45
that will swallow you up.
