His Sins


He stood on a cliff overlooking the ocean
Salt sprays rain in the air his thoughts strayed
To all his past sins
He committed a little bit of each
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
As he watch the violence of the sea
Reminding him of the rage in his heart
Was he worth loving, he thought not
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
He took a step closer to the edge
One foot dangled just a tad over
One more step and he’d be
Lost forever
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed

Would he be missed?
Someone out there crying
For his soul damned by years
Of abuse in turn he abused other
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
The vicious cycle of life was
Coming with a vengeance looking
Over that cliff so many thoughts paraded
Through his mind
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
His mother had loved him once upon a time
He didn’t know his father and didn’t
Really give a damn
Clouds rolled in turning the morning grey
The sun ran away if acknowledging his duplicity
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
Out in the distance he spotted a seagull
Wondered what it must of felt like
Soaring through the air with all that freedom
Beneath his wings, being free he never experienced
Always locked in some inner battle with himself
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
The sea was calling him
The waves echoed in his mind
Telling him he’d find the peace
And freedom he was denied
One more step he’d find the answer to
So many questions
Life eternal
He lied,
 Cheated,
Coveted, and yes
 He even killed
