My heart needs a bath

I need a bath
Soap and froth
Spray of water
A scrub and wash

Body weary
Full of grime
Heart laden
With hate and crime

Some I like
Others I hate
Cage of destiny
Bind of fate

Happy moments
Brings a smile
Sad ones follow
After a short while

Full of anguish
String of regrets
Missed opportunities
And some lost bets

I carry the burden
Memories from the start
Furrows on the forehead
Worries in the heart

In the holy,
One dip I yearn
to unshackle the web
Many things to unlearn

I run the water
Bring up the froth
Scrub clean the weary skin
Emerge free, pure at heart
