Before reading this , please note it was for a contest , Not about my Son "
The theme " A son that set fire to the home , confronting at police station "
I do believe we have our Arsonist , but why ?
amazing behind this mirror we hear truth & Lies
" This time my heart broken, I can not accept your lies
Now you have become felon before our very eyes
Was I not a mother to you , surely I told you I love you
This time I can not bail you out your story must be true
did you want me to catch on fire
Please tell me now ..was this your desire ?
I am sorry for all I have done
I am sorry for what you have become
All I wanted was for you to smile surrounded by love
Now I walk away from you in tears and ash in my throat
Yes you have killed me no doubt
I can only pray for your Salvation
But Why ..Why I ask you with burnt eyes
you have set a fire that weakens my soul
Please God tell me this is not true my Son.
Forgive him, he knows not what he has done. "
