I Walk To My Fate

Barely enough time before I walk to my fate,
to confess all my wrongs before it is too late.
The hall is cold – narrow- to the end of the line,
short steps echo as my elapsed thoughts entwine.

I feel blank walls - constant tears forgotten,
sweat from fear - stained and forever rotten.
Smell of death cuts me in to - like my knife,
that stabbed a young man - took away his life.

Oh God forgive me for what I have done,
effaced without consent from wife or son.
didn’t know him in the dark, he was just there,
he fought bravely for his years but didn’t care.

I walk to my death – stare through its vile eye,
took a young life, now I must clearly die…

    You have painted a picture with words that inspire, sadden and captivate the reader. I am captured by the images so skillfully developed by the author and the reality of the words move me. Emile. #7

    I just noticed I said Mind down in my first reply instead of mine. Geeez, well, I have to get off now. Sorry I have no time to search for a new poem to read. If I can find one really fast, I'll go see it. Let me look.

    Now THAT is a sad shrift!!! Mind is a funny one, but it's not up yet. So glad you got another poem up and I wish you luck with the internet.
