Cries Of the Grave

Please forgive me my mates
the ones who walk this earth,
my fellow dwellers of this cosmos,
my neighbors who i share this above and beyond,
i'm nothing but a pile of meat,
the lowest scum that exists,
my body will one day vanish like the mist,
my remains will be gone, slowly getting rotten,
the cycle of life should never be forgotten,
what will stay with me is my doing good or evil,
this gossip for entertainment will never deliver,
any benefit to the mankind any  kind of favor,
it will in turn haunt me forever,
the lies i tell, thinking i am clever,
the people i hurt regretting it never,
the hearts i break thinking it'll all be better,
digging my grave deeper, making it more darker,
spent so much money on my own endeavors,
never had a nickel or a penny for that beggar,
i wish i knew then , what i came to realize,
the time i wasted building this material life,
i was never kept in betrayal i should have never been in doubt,
Didn't i know since i was born, this is nothing but a route?
A fragile little glass house that could shatter any time,
a mere blow on the head or a victim of some crime,
a chronic disease or just a common cold,
it would end nonetheless different stories told,
my clothes my bags would not help,
when my body will freeze and my heart will stop,
in the darkness of this night,
what i would witness forever in fright,
heaps of regret , no sign of light
save my soul, so long i cried,
i never listened, i never apologized
i feel ashamed calling out their names,
the ones i ignored , i didn't really care
how can i expect them to be there?
and now i want to get one more life,
to do it again, for a good reason i thrive,
i don't want to talk behind their back,
my defense mechanism to hide all what i lack,
hating me more, thanking i am gone,
is that the face i am taking to the one and only God,
hurting his creation,He would never forgive,
cutting me slack in prayers and fasts,
i cant get away with breaking hearts,
Forgive me now before its too late,
oh mankind i want to exit with a clean slate.
