I reap the rotten harvest

of my fake holiness

how much I wanted to

attend the suffering

how much harm I did

in my vain instruction

personal salvation

was all I really wanted

hiding behind the instruction

that we each are responsible for ourselves

and those in hardship or dislocation

seeing only my own turned back

the final realization to dispirit me

that I embody the conceited tyrant

with a heart like flint

and no grace to transmute it

I myself a tyrant

I myself to a slave to my failures...
