Unrepentant – A poem

I am only human after all,

and prone to vice, some big, some small.

I never claimed to be perfect

I can’t hide or be circumspect.

I am what I am, nothing more

I’ll await what fate has in store.

I stand accused of living life,

with gay abandon, free of strife

of having an ego too enlarged

what can I say? Guilty as Charged.

I stand unrepentantly tall.

I do not accept any sentence at all.

Life is a sentence of its own

its own punishment for seeds we’ve sown,

both tremendous pain and pleasure

love and laughter without measure.

I stand here strong in the life I’ve built,

I’ve cheated no one, so feel no guilt.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
