Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
My name is Alastair Francis Glynn
I’ve done so much; where to begin?
There isn’t time to say everything
I know this is meant to be anonymous
But I’m not afraid to say it
There’s so much things
Despite my skin so thin
I’ll tell you with my hidden eyes
I heard about “Stiff Upper Lip”
I heard about “Control”
If I was so easily controlled,
Don’t you think I would have worked out how to do it?
I heard about wearing one’s Heart on One’s sleeve
I did work out how to do that
Maybe it’s just about taking one step at a time
In heavy seas, sometimes it’s just not safe to keep moving the boat forward
Sometimes you have to hold steady
Sometimes even go backwards a little way
But always make sure you’re pointing in the right direction
Then, when things calm down again – as they always do, eventually – you’re ready to set sail once more: full steam ahead!
In the Beginning, there was the Word
And the Word is in the Jokes
A great Philosopher once wrote
But the Alpha and Omega Spoke
…this might just be the best Friday the 13th
I remember Living
I remember sitting by the fire
I still sing those songs
Thanks for hearing my confession.
