154 (who?)
The Walk of Utter Shame:

My face is hidden by a blackened mask,
As I am taken to stand before the crowd.
Ripped from my face and cast aside,
My features burn in the glaring sun...

"Who amongst you will defend this man?"
I hear a soldier call.
"None of us sir!" The crowd shrieks back,
As to my knees I fall.

"Shame him!" The soldier cries,
As they begin to pelt me with rotten fruits,
"Maim him!" the people scream,
As they kick at me with mailed boots...

I shudder and writhe beneath the torture,
Too pained to even scream in fear.
For this is the punishment that I deserve,
For shaming the honour that I hold dear.

In anger, in rage, in emotions so dark,
I've carelessly denounced the work of my siblings...

Now I lie, in battered penance,
For only pain can ease the shameful sting...

Never did I think that I would fall,
But pride is arrogant dissonance.
Through penitent pain and suffering,
I have learned the value of reticence.

"Allow me to accept my shame and offer my apologies..."

Hey there everyone. Please feel free to do one or all of the above. You will be thanked for it, so please help me in my career by doin' one of them ^^


Hey guys,

This piece was released because I'm very ashamed of having unintentional put down two authors. Even if they aren't aware of it.

It still is a black mark on my record, and being someone who stands up for others, it definitely wasn't something I want to do.

So here I am, to beg for forgiveness from everyone. I hope you can all forgive me.

A big thank you to :icondyronl: for teaching me what I need to be taught. ^^

To my former friend-I assume you need some closure as well. Iwill never understand until you spell it out. Poems as riddles won't do,and it is frutratng and very unfair to me. Please find a way ro answer me directly. Again, I know that for you, the poems are the only way you can get this out, and you have written lines to te effect you are frustrated with me that I don't get ,what you see as clear revelations. Was it your father?, brother/s, father and brothers?How was your Do you want me to help?mother involved? Stood by and didnt do anything? Participated? You must get me to a certain point, so I can begin to understand, I feel your pain. Believe me, I do. But I need to know the circumstances to be able to relate to you. Dont you want me to know everything so I "get you" ? I myself.want to go through hypnosis, so I might be able to remember my abuse. up to you. I want to help. If you want me to, share.
Maybe that would enable us to be friends again. Or keep shutting me out. Look where that got us.

I have no idea who you are mate ^^;

This was written a very long time ago and it was due to me unintentionally putting down two authors as was written in the comments :3

well personally i think guilt feels worse than shame, because inner pain hurts a lot, and worsens productivity.
well you can get back on path :D
