Was With the Last Priest

One more wilted flower
     flutters slow in the breeze
As the last priest prays soft
     down upon bended knees.
Waiting at Heaven's gate
     with his heart filled with grief,
Is the one once so lost
     in the guise of a thief.

Lives were spent in labors
     according to a plan,
One stole for his fortune,
     the other for the Man.
Traveled hard and lonely,
     living from day to day,
Each walked with the shadows
     in-between shades of grey.

Final minute’s ticking
     through the bid for control,
One last theft of future,
     one last word for the soul.
With the prayer past ending
     and hands bleeding with shame,
The thief and this last priest
     become one and the same.
