My Confession

Forgive me Father for I have sinned
My actions have left me feeling chagrined
My fist hit his face, my knuckles skinned
Inner devil grinned, inner devil grinned

Because he deserved it, doesn't make it right
The remorse I feel, keeps me up at night
The anger inside bubbled and did ignite
My fist took flight, my fist took flight

I may be female, the weaker sex
High emotions makes me more complex
Only my words will now carry desired effects
This I truthfully vex, this I truthfully vex

I have never walloped anyone before
He baited me, I walked into his trapdoor
It won't happen again, this I implore
I'll punch no more, I'll punch no more

I vow to keep my inner devil at bay
Promises to myself I do not betray
If I get the urge to punch, I'll recall the replay
And duly walk away, and duly walk away

    I think a little forgiveness is in order. One of the funny things about the human experience is that we sometimes don't know how we are going to feel about something until it happens. Whatever causes me to act out has always touched a nerve. I don't like being written off as inconsequential. I have acted out a few times. I least we didn't use a gun or a knife. It makes me believe that I have descended from more primitive life forms. You are very serious, funny and clever!

    Ha ha very entertaining. Change to "keeps me up at night." you missed a letter. Very well done and entertaining.

    Hey, that was something!!! what a unique poem you came up with for the confessional. I honestly don't know what i could enter into this contest. I think it is right up the alley of what he is looking for and you said it so poetically with this poetry form.
