Penance for a Sin

by Mark Mangum
I pay penance for all my sins
And still find no joy

I repent to the jealous priests
And still find nothing

I pray to God
And still receive not answers

I cleanse my soul
But it brings no happiness

I would confess my sins to the world
But it would do no good
For they would only crucify me

I would love
But still would always be lost

I shed tears
But feel no release of these pains

I pay penance for these sins
But I will never be forgiven
