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.

The Emancipator
