The State of being Penitent

If I pretend it didn’t happen

Then maybe I lead myself astray

I never change my behavior

Yet I expect these problems to simply fade away

If only I could do something?

That would result in a net gain

If only I can avoid this cycle?

That keeps me attached to the pain

How do I recognize?

How will I make a change?

If and when I take some action?

If and when my priorities I rearrange?

If our mistakes don’t catch up with us

As this is why we must forgive

The ones that do catch up

Are the ones that we are certain to relive

The state of being penitent

Is overcome by learning from the unforgiven

When the scars run deep

One then tends to become the driven
