The Repenter

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)



They grew into one.
I'm sorry. Forgive me. I forgive others.
They opened their eyes.
I'm sorry. Forgive me. I forgive others.
They took their first breath of air.
I'm sorry. Forgive me. I forgive others.
They lived for a second.
I'm sorry. Forgive me. I forgive others.
They learnt forgiveness.
I'm sorry. Forgive me. I forgive others.
They repented to Mother/Father God.
I'm sorry. Forgive me. I forgive others.
