I'm sorry mama
by now your heart must be sighing.
Forgive my lie when I promised to write,
but seasons captured my pen from flight.
It's okay mama
I'm just crying.
Many times I've written in my head,
thoughts to paper never sown.
And many more words will never be fed,
for this is my last letter home.
You warned me of seductive snares,
addictive deceptions that satiate.
You knew this life I couldn't navigate,
hold me mama I'm running scared.
I went my way far from sight,
I found skies you didn't know.
I chased black dreams evils delight,
I feel deep in the depths of sins inferno.
Now I dream of safety upon maternal breasts,
one last time let me kiss your face.
In your warmth my innocence I'd retrace,
please sing my angry heart to rest.
I'm so cold
and in this peace my soul confides,
But now I must say goodbye.
Don't you ever cry.
O' it's alright mama,
today I died.
