Atonement

Atonement means
That some how I’m forgiven,
When I know inside
How hard I’ve driven
To make amends,
To show I’m sorry.
But is it a one way trick?
How can I atone
When you won’t accept it?
Do I carry on,
Knowing
You never will?
At some point I must stop.
And if I don’t,
Are you then atonable
For forcing my endless
Atonement?
And then when do I
Accept yours?
Or do I never
Let you too?
