I am guilty by design
                  Not birth
 An honor bestowed upon me during a childhood
I     can    not    remember
I bathe in milky white every night
    Sometimes alone
I over dose on insatiable
        My lovers a phalanx of timber
        Oak and Elm
    A lap dog to four of the seven sins
Fighting to understand   to see and feel something real
Something    that is the light
    Sometimes bursting in neon pink   Hot pink
And cautionary tales neva prepared me for this
Knowledge adds to my pain    and I thirst for it
    Pseudo-masochist  of words
         Stealing more light
And I yearn for it    passionately
    Which makes me guilty by design   not birth
        My race and gender only exacerbate the situation

You certainly are guilty of not sharing fantastic poetry like this for so long. Don't worry, I'll forgive everything… including your gender and your race. ;-)

I guess it doesn't matter which four of the 7 deadly sins you pick when the design is faulty. But your poetry isn't.

It's not right to self-judge yourself in a negative way. Everyone was born for a reason. Everyone, regardless of race and gender, is just as everyone else. It's great to read you again. Long time no see, Mitzi!!!!

I have to think that race and gender is secondary to mental persuasion. There is always a way to deal with the dark. Many people of your race and gender have overcome great obstacles and saw the light at the end of that long, dreary tunnel. You can too. Not saying it isn't difficult, but you can too.
