Forgive Myself

Can I forgive
myself,
a human
fallible
with a
tally sheet
of my
failures
written on
my memory?

I would
grant
release
to another
if they
petitioned
my heart
to forgive.

Why
continue
to pace
the cell
block
of my
sins?

I have
served
enough
time
in my
prison of
remorse.

I am
my own
warden.
It is
time
I sign
the papers
sentence
served
and
expedite
my
freedom.
