- What Matters
I have believed, so I'm the fool,
So make this my apology
That I have thought askew from thee,
And make my words on earth annul.
My only sin- I believe in sin,
Redemption is my shameful Fall,
And to be told I'm mocked by all
Is where my Purgatory must begin.
Purge my soul to nothingness,
Cleanse me with "Whatever you say,"
For "equality" has the hierarchy lay
Of ideologies' worthiness.
And so I too am nothingness
Please, take away the Structure Blessed
And strip back my past and then save me from Free,
That modeled I may be to my "truly" me.
Steal from me Who loved me first,
Say my Second Fling's my truth
Delegate that freedom's what's uncouth-
That through laws liberty's cursed
Without a standard please determine
I'm right or wrong, or a degree between;
Too greedy am I to say Truth's just for me,
But now, of any, how can any be certain?
Too staunch are thoughts all in this room
But I too kind t'not exorcise the lies believed,
So before my sympathy the better gets of me
Condemn me now to my celesial doom.
I confess, you negate? Please, do tell,
But if I but make your fury hotter,
Then simply make yourselves a martyr
And damn me to your ethereal hell.
