Theatrical Muse Topic: Something you've outlived.

Something I’ve outlived – or pray that I have finally outlived – is the mindless wrath I once felt too often. The anger that rose up at every perceived slight, at every rejection of me for being strange in the eyes of others. The fury I felt when others called me ghost and hated me just because of the pallor of my skin.

Wrath is one of the seven deadly sins, and it has bought me only trouble. Exile, imprisonment, terror in the eyes of those around me… I have felt so much sorrow each time when rage has got me into strife yet again.

Now I am a monk, a man of God and living a disciplined life under the guidance of Holy Mother Church and my beloved mentor, Bishop Manuel Aringarosa. Each day I pray that I can leave behind the life I once led, the life of a wretched sinner, angry at the world and with a heart full of vengeance. I wish now only to serve and to forgive.
