i have penance to do

i have penance to do

if you forgive me not
nor call my name
my penance is mine
just the same

i suffer you not
in my elocution
or written word
nary a tone of acidity
shall drip from my tongue
for it is not your judgment
upon which i must pass
but that of my own
and such
i have always known
that i am the Captain of this ship
the sails are of my own making
and i take leave
across the Seas of my hopes
i have penance to do

(c) 29 January 2011 : William S. Peters, Sr.
