Are Sins Forgiven in Youth?

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt
Use the words "my sin beyond" in a piece of writing
(posted by Devereaux and Beth)

My sins are
beyond belief.
Grief I have
suffered.  Grief
I have caused.
My youth seems
to me now.  Was
my definition
of sin different
in my youth?  Mom
once had a perfume
called My Sin.  Must
have been wicked.

I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
