Born in 54’…


Took 28 years to learn the error of his ways,

Prior to that in prison he did his errors pay,

So many variables, so many reasons still,

His life was a mess; he had his fill…


He did admit his wrong doings,

He did need to do so, the first step on the path,

To enlightenment and release from his accusers wrath,

It took him three years to sort it all out,

Even after his release he has had of his sanity, doubt…


He still does notice those that he should not,

Wishes he does in the past he was just shot,

His problems then could he have forgot,

He does want to go back to his evil ways,

But he has more common sense of late these days…


He wants his karma to change,

His next life to be better than this,

These thoughts in his head though they be quite strange,

Have not led him down the path of being more deranged,

He tries so hard these thoughts to re-arrange…


Please to the gods do not allow him to go astray,

Perhaps death will come with a kiss,

It would be for him, so much more than you can imagine, most bliss…!

The evil, insane, crazy days... always give the allure of excitement. And over time, I question... "was it really that bad?" Then reality says, "yes, it was!" I'll follow the path and the journey I'm on. Where it goes? Time will tell... great thought-provoking write...

He does want to go back to his evil ways,
But he has more common sense of late these days…

And may his common sense grow stronger - with each and every passing day.
