Tidal Wave

Swept away
its emotion and feeling
lays on my heart
on my conscience
and stabs at my mind
Was it right?
Was it right?
The question repeats
until I relent
and I know
it was not
and I must--
even if my heart is harder
on me than it should be---
I must
ask forgiveness
of me
of them
of the Lord.
