Shame

No need my friend

To hang your head

To cover your face

With sullen salty ashes

No need to think

Your soul is lost

No need to feel

Unworthy

There is no shame

In being human

No shame at all

No shame

 

Guilt there is

Regret can be

Remorse is sometimes

Useful

Mistakes are made

Wrongs are done

When we have

Hurt someone

We need to try

To make amends

 

Banish shame

Send it away

Forgive yourself

Lift up your eyes

The sun will rise again

Human hearts

Are fragile things

Love not fear

Will help them mend

 

You’ve good to do

You’re needed here

A blessing you should be

Those who judge you worthless

Need forgiveness too.

 

There is no shame

In being human

No shame at all

No shame
