Tredging through mountains of snow on a three mile trek, to feed the birdies tummies and my soul, confronted a gang of teenagers shooting the same with their B B guns, yet deeply hurt, I remember when I was young, I was not much better.

Oh I am boiling inside


I am very angry


With myself I had a fight


 


I walk through the deep and dark


Of my soul


A way back to the arc


 


When two by two under Noah’s watchful gaze


Walked that plank onto a new dominion


Left all the sin behind without a trace


 


Another chance for the human race


But hungers need and greed


Soon our innocence debase


 


The firstborn slain to feed our greed


Spilled innocent blood in turmoil’s strive


The arrow faster than his speed


 


Though plentiful the fruit it flourished


Multitudes to feed


Innocent blood more quickly nourished


 


We soon forgot that our new dawn


To start better and anew


To our stomach became a pawn


 


We killed that deer to feed our bones


Survival at its best


Yet no one for their blood atones


 


Taking lives to pay for ours


Just become the norm


While the soul again it cowers


 


It seems we like to kill


It is our primal longing


Our basic nature to fulfill


 


Our higher nature in a different realm must be


A distant future place


Fearful, it, our soul might see


 


We close our eyes, with regret and sinful chant


To the maker we ask his blessing


To lend a helping hand


 


And then with skill and erudition


Circumscribe what he had meant


Make skilful sin a wise tradition


 


When young and following the trend


Hunt everything in sight to fill the tummy


The others destruction I was bent


 


And now much older realize


The havoc I had wrecked


My actions now despise


 


To my dismay and my regret


To late became so wise


Would have acted differently instead!

Many questions here Jasmin. Many have no answers.

The young leap where even Angels fear to tread. They feel immortal. Without others to cheer them on, they might reconsider and atone. Jasmin, you are a wonderful man. Any sins you have committed have long been atoned for with your loving care of our animal, water, and flying friends.
Love,
annie

I'm sure anyone willing to do that has atoned for any of their sins many times over.

I applaud your honesty Jasmin, and as you know we all have regrets of our former years, and must reconcile ourselves to the truth. Then leave it there for we can't change what is past, but we can show understanding to others, as you have done here.

Love,
ET

My Mom always said "profit from your mistakes and mine. make new ones." But, any way you cut it, a mistake [whatever it might be] is still a mistake. Those who learn from them are blest. Those who don't, well ... what can I say?

God bless you. Kathy
