Repentance at the Holy Gate
Smiling cadaverously he knocked. The gate
Swung open and he said, "May I come in?"
I know the empery of Hell. Too late
Perhaps, I feel contrition for my sin
Of compromise with evil on the earth.
I might have reached a godliness of soul
But ruthlessly wrought chaos. Grant rebirth!
My cowering conscience pleads to be made whole.
My heart is now a crucible of fear.
Would that my soul had dared to seek the Fount
Of Light! With avatars and angels near,
I could have been a savior on the Mount.
