notes on hope and redemption: #13 – now and then

Poem #37 from a second series of meditations titled: the Pilgrim (2)

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction


is it possible
pilgrim
to make up for a misdeed
whether perceived
or real

can this be achieved
through good deeds
or other acts
of contrition

or are such attempts
incorrect interpretations
of consequence
arising from unitary acts
that occured

once upon a time

in what way
pilgrim
can now
affect then

  1. One can “make up” for a misdeed to the universe by leveling up the amount of pain and pleasure/joy one sent out to the cosmos.
    The darkness, the scars, the memory of pain and coping mechanisms caused in the “victim” by that misdeed cannot be erased. Now cannot affect then.
    In this manner, ‘sorry’ contributes more to the “perpetrator’s” peace of mind than to the “victim’s”.
