who taught u forgiveness?
that misunderstood flavor
u question my intentions
hidden in my behaviour

i wonder if today will last?
i wonder your religion?
i question your pretensions
i long to be forgiven

everyone is guilty
some just got position
some try not to hurt u
most just never listen

i try not to lie too much
cuz liars never prosper
but sometimes i'm a sinner
i'm kneeling at your altar

    I enjoyed reading this, Trevor. I think the question mark at the end of the first line should be at the end of the second line. Cheers.

    Trevor: I'm a simple rhymer. Knowing little about "true" poetry makes some of it hard for me to understand but as I put myself in your piece I thought you might actually know me. :o) Thanks for sharing such a "thoughtful" work with all of us on the Soup. I look forward to seeing more of your thoughts in ink soon. oldbuck

    I liked the idea, Trevor, and I liked the emotion you created, but I really didn't like the use of U for you.
