Acquittal - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Intentions done,
Can not be erased to undo.
And even in the presence of warnings given,
Nothing painted in the picture...
Delivers a hint or a clue,
To the one stubbornly committed...
To go through with a misdeed or two to do.
Believing immunity is a guarantee.

A consciousness arrives to us at different times.
And a ritual of using prayer to ask forgiveness,
As done by those awakening with guilt...
Does not mean an acquittal will be granted.
Or the one victimized by slander and lies...
Has stopped faithfully praying to ease a mind burdened,
With a wish to see justice inflicted as a gift one gets...
That rectifies with an applied and appropriate punishment.
