Kneeling silently with bowed head
Hands clasped and eyes shut tight

My mind returns to all my crimes
I pray for God to hear my plight

With loud and trembling voice I cry
"Set me free, oh gracious Lord!"

But the axe falls -- my head rolls --
The penance I must pay for sin --

"God is more merciful than men"
The executioner replies and grins.

Read metaphorically or literally this is a great prayer - and one many could relate to in the metaphorical sense!
Well done.
