Oh God Forgive Me For My Sins

Oh God Forgive Me For My Sins, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
the diminutive
human doll
cursed with
aging skin
looked up
at the heavens
raised her chin
bedridden forever
dying from within
she pleaded to her
maker of her
spiritual discipline
in his paradise
of painless moments
of everlasting happiness
if he would let her in
than she closed her
eyes for second
cosmically her soul
on the axis of her
imagination whirred
began to spin .
her cosmic fate of
a born loser she knew
could never win..
