Lamentum - Poem by Dalton J Brown II

The essence of his soul
Convey still the sorrow
The existence of his being
Endure forever the shame

The torment that became his entity
Has now become his misery

Mind vision still the distress
Memories so painful
Images so dark

Heart wreak still the pain
Behavior so atrocious
Emotions so frigid

The introspection of his feelings
Will forever taunt him
Scars forevermore remind him
Retribution for his sins
