Confession is good for the soul they say.
But I say I just can't believe it.
It exposes the pain and the grief that one feels,
their life and the way that they live it.
It offers the truth but it may not explain.
And it may not produce understanding.
But the guilt it can bring is so dreadful a thing
when the world just wont let them forget it.
Yesterday is history,
tomorrow just a mystery.
And if today is good to me,
it will beat the heck out of day before yesterday!
