Tears Of An Apologetic Arrogant - Poem by gabbie good

THE OLD ME IS DEAD AND GONE AWAY
BURIED DEEP WITHIN THE GROUND
WITHIN IT MY DEEP-ROOTED SINFUL ARROGANT WAYS
SOMETHING NEEDED TO CHANGE
I GUESS HE WAS THE PRICE
THE BLOOD MONEY THAT WOULD OVERALL
ATONE FOR MY WICKED SINS OF FOOLISHNESS
NOW I HAVE NO FRIENDS
NO ONE TO CARE FOR ME
FOR THE OLD ME LIVED LIFE IN VAIN
NOW I MUST SUFFER TO ATONE FOR MY OWN BLOODY SINS
FOR THE OLD ME DIDN’T CARE WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT
OR HAD TO SAY
BECAUSE THE OLD ME NEEDED TO DIE AND GO AWAY
BUT THE MONSTER INSIDE ME JUST KEPT
PRESSING ON
I ONLY CARED FOR MYSELF
FOR THE OLD ME WAS EGOTISTICAL, ARROGANT, AND HEARTLESS
NEEDLESS TO SAY I NEVER CARED WHO I HURTED IN THE END
BECAUSE THE OLD ME WAS TOO BIG, TOO MIGHTY TO DIE
I THE MIGHTY KING WAS BIGGER THAN LIFE
UNTIL THAT FATEFUL DAY
WHEN I FOUGHT WITH THE ONE I CALLED FAMILY
THE BROTHER WHO CARED FOR ME
WHO WOULD DIE FOR ME
THAT VERY FATEFUL DAY THE OLD KING WAS SLAYED
I DID THE UNTHINKABLE
I MISCALCULATED
BECAUSE I LET MY PRIDE GET IN THE WAY
I CALLED MY “GOOD FRIENDS”
TOLD THEM TO TAKE CARE OF IT
TO GIVE HIM SOMETHING NICE
LITTLE DID I KNOW
THEY WOULD END HIS BLAMELESS LIFE
SNATCH IT AWAY AT THE SNAP OF THE KING’S
FINGERS
AND LEAVE HIS FAMILY WONDERING WHAT
HE DID TO DIE
I SAW HIM TAKE HIS LAST LABORIOUS BREATHS
IN THOSE PAINFUL LAST MOMENTS OF LIFE
BEING SNACHED AWAY
HE FORGAVE ME FOR THE CRIMES I
HAD COMMITED AGAINST HIM AND MANY OTHERS
THEN HE SLOWLY TOOK HIS LAST BREATH
AND DIED AS IF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
WAS WAITING FOR HIM ON THE OTHER SIDE
TO REWARD HIM FOR BEING A SIN OFFERING
FOR THE FOOL
DIED WITH HIM WAS MY OLD SELF
THE FOOLISH NARCISSISTIC KING
AS I SIT HERE KNOWING I AM TO BLAME
HOW DO I EXPLAIN THAT THE OLD ME IS DEAD AND
GONE AWAY
NEVER TO RETURN AGAIN
