Last Night

 

that was it, last night

no tears nor regrets

the anger, fear, and tears

are gone, at least for now

the pain subsides

life continues

 

careless words spoken

to assuage a conscience seared

easy words to say

yet possessed of no idea

of the damage that is caused

again

 

tempting to ways of wrath

this soul who in his weakness

once again has fallen

upon the gentle hand of God
