Chink In The Armour Might Be A Saviour

For these mistakes I must atone
If I don’t I can’t postpone
Disassociate from my darkest days
When all the light had gone away

Polarised by things I’ve said
Each one felt like a warhead
Shot into the heart of life
Obliteration becomes rife

But this is not what I wish to leave
Sometimes the past needs a reprieve
Pause from the endless cycle
Disease that would go viral
And that doesn’t sit well with me

Criticisms which I honour
Might make you feel like a goner
Snip the wire and let it fray
Not words to which I shall ever pray

Cornered like a rabid dog
It stalks you through the heavy fog
Snarling teeth ready to bite
Be better to not attempt a fight

But this is not what I wish to leave
Sometimes the past needs a reprieve
Pause from the endless cycle
Disease that would go viral
And that doesn’t sit well with me

It’s in your sight
Like it was mine
I could have tried harder
Instead I didn’t combine
Build upon my best traits
Greatest of my mistakes
It’s why I’m here
Down on my knees
Asking for forgiveness
I need rid of ignorance

Cause this was not what I wished to leave
Sometimes the past needs a permanent reprieve
A break in the endless cycle
A stop to the disease that would go viral
And that is what I have now achieved
