Forgiven Sin A Sestina Poem

Thall shall not condemn the sin
In which he has lived in
Burning buildings always collapse
Like a thorn on a rose
Walking on shattered glass
Taking in your last breath

He comes to me holding his last breath
Does he feel the pain from his sin 
You see a reflection in the glass 
The long haired man steps in 
He smells the aroma from a rose 
Before he starts to collapse 

The sin you hold will collapse  
Sins can no longer breath  
Being stoned from the smell of the rose  
Enter the light and forget your sin  
Let the long haired man in  
Piece together the shattered glass 

Save a piece of the shattered glass  
There are reasons why it collapse  
Accept the world in which you live in  
Make this not be your last breath  
Concur to all, rest your sin  
Pull every thorn off the rose  

Take your hand and cover the rose  
Hide the cracks and shine the glass  
Be ridden of your sin  
Rebuild the buildings that collapse 
It's getting easier to breath  
Make a change in this world you live in 

Remove the darkness and walk in  
Fallen petals from a rose  
You can now start to breath  
No more fallen glass  
Buildings no longer collapse  
Forget the reasoning for your sin  

Step in the reflection through the glass  
Petals from the rose never collapse  
Breath again, forgiven sin
