I broke the glass
And blamed my brother
To get myself out of trouble.

I trapped a worm,
Called it my pet,
And let it dry and crumble.

I lied and said
I did my chores,
So I could go and play.

I snuck the candy
In the cart,
And made my mother pay.

We commit small crimes
When we are young,
Yet we’re called the innocent youth.

I think this shows
All is forgiven
When we face our sins and tell the truth.
