Nothing Is More Bitter - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Nothing is more bitter,
Than the taste of one's actions regretted.
Even though a forgiveness may be expressed,
By those whose lives had been affected.

There is nothing like the guilt,
An unconscious mind awakened...
And discovers,
It is not an easy task to shake or break away,
From what has been advocated...
And harsely displayed in those misdeeds done,
From one's past.
Upon someone undeserving.

Especially when God selects,
The appropriate punishment!
It seems as though He is not totally,

Even 'if' one has found a 'rebirth'
In the singing of His praises.
There still will be lessons...
He wishes to insure are completely learned.
And meets the approval of those mistreated.

    Even though forgiveness has been dispensed...guilt feeling always hunts the subconscious mind...and stays like shadow in time...a 10. (Report)Reply
