For My Sins Against Others The Price I Must Pay - Poem by Francis Duggan

For my sins against others the price i must pay
But i do not hate anybody since this is not my way
I only wish to be forgiven as i do forgive
Since i believe in the philosophy of live and let live
Of my worth as a person i have reason to doubt
But to improve in our ways should be what life is about
One can only be the best that one can be
At least anyway this is how it seems to me
Though any harm to another person i never have done
Of those in need of self improvement i can claim to be one
Compassion and kindness does come from within
And the majority of people myself included are not free of sin
And for my sins against others the price i must pay
But i do not hate anybody since this is not my way.
