SHADOWS FALL

When do we stop paying
for our sins,
is it after time
or acceptance
when the healing begins

How do we move on
past the pain,
and do scars
contain toxins
of the blame

Where on the bridge
do shadows fall,
is it in the moonlight
where nightfall
hides them all

Why on the road
do we often drift,
from the innocent distance
of our mother's kiss

Who in their travels
avoids regret,
it comes with living
by the tables we set

What is the course
for clean release,
and can it last,
or will the joy it brings
be brief
