I'm Sorry Poem

A different kind of apology.

My Punishment

© Norman Keith Morgan
Stood strong
Stood proud
Through my smile
Crying out loud
Sit in my wheelchair
Try to pretend
It's the beginning
Not the end
No longer tall
No longer strong
Stomach aches
Things I did wrong
Paying for my sins
Know it must be
Sorry to my family
There is no glee
Race against time
Already lost
No playing with kids
Cold as frost
In the end
Sins paid in full
No longer livin'
And still unforgiven.
