The Ninth Letter (Epistle)#mcl 9

Dear Grace,

I am sorry I failed to
Recognise your presence in my life to
Live by the vows I made when I told you 'I do'

I do accept you for who you are
I do vow to love you just the way you are
I do vow to fight for you; fight by your side when trouble brews
I do vow to accept the wholeness of your packaging and your attributes
Your friends, your relatives even your neighbours too
I do vow like my Eden that I'll care for you and nurture you
I do vow to never leave your side for better or worse
In this life or the next
I do vow to love you forever

I appalled you enough
With words of my well-rehearsed speech
In my well-versed piece
Drew an span longer than my earpiece
Hear this

At the baptistery remember I hailed you
On moments my actions were deemed true
But I downscaled you
While I saw myself sail through
Nimbus and cloud nine sat amongst stars
That make rain of meteor showers

Remember I paid you Homeage
And this one is for youfrom a homeless savage
That fell in love with the dark knight faster than flip a Bible page

And whenever I see the light shine
I see that's the right sign
To pay my fine
But since I'm fine
Then debts I got none
So the light's gone

And I sigh...
And think that we shall see the sunshine soon
Gazing up at the moon...

But still then...
I am fallen...
And the light is like unto a bad omen.

Yours Looking For Myself,
