Alone I sit,
alone I wait.
My leprous soul,
I castigate.

For mortal sins,
Immortal throes.
Due Inferno,
I self impose.

Faults imagined,
deficits real.
By hindsight gained,
both are revealed.

Ceaseless lessons,
provide charts for
course correction.

With guiding stars
to light my ways.
Celestial paths,
purposeful days.
