We’re all sinners too

Each as guilty as the next

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth

A rope around our necks


We’re all sinners too

No one is innocent here

There is no such thing as truth

Lies fill the air


So we all need to be judged

So let’s have mercy, shall we

The dirt ridden path has been trudged

By everyone including me


So we all need to be judged

That is a truth of life

But be careful to not misjudge

Lest you forget the knife in your side


So lets have a reprieve

Forgive and forget I say

It’s a tiny relief

And in this modern day


So lets have a reprieve

Live another way

So each of us can believe

That there is a brighter day



The Icognito Writer: Reprieve

I am not who I say I am but who my writing says I am; my characters define me. Like puppets in a play, they tell you who pulls the strings. I'm not who I say I am; I'm who you think I am.
