the only way to atone

Is it better to give in,
where beauty
is not wanted or known?
To stay silent,
know your place,
fit in,
and slowly die all alone.

Is it better to not forgive,
to hold that grudge
and let it build to retaliate,
continuously relive,
and constantly judge,
the very things which
I hate to participate.

Mustn’t we
– transport the unforgiven
to its highest spiritual realm,
and let our ship be thusly driven,
with our soul
placed firmly at the helm.

– and mustn’t we ascend,
the gutter to the throne,
and transmute whats
vile to beauty,
for isn’t that our sacred duty,
and the only way
for us mortals to atone.
