Sacrifice







You'd be perfect
everyone said,
even before I was enrolled.
I kissed the ring
offered me,
and did what I was told,
though to myself
as bad boys go,
I knew I had been sold.
I behaved, did my best,
said the thank you
and the please.
The father whispered
in my ear, and for his soul
I prayed down on my knees.
But then
I never believed
I was the one deceived,
they had led me
into sin,
and could never
be received.
