the light was growing dimmer with my only son behind me through the darkest woods where people seldom roam to the place where I would kill him for the shame that he had brought down on our home o my heart was feeling heavy as we walked up through the trees but in my head I had to set things right the boy could hardly know it was the last time that he'd ever see the light in the last light of the sun I saw my beautiful young son and I brought my shovel down upon his head he tried to reach out for me with his crying eyes and everything was red "O Daddy please I'm dying," my sweet William tried to say but his helpless cries were growing soft and dim and when his cries had stopped I picked that shovel off the ground and buried him my wife was waiting for me as I came in from the dark her worried face knew that I'd murdered our poor son the only words she spoke were, "There's a place for you in Hell for what you've done." well I struggled through my sleepless dreams and all the hours in between I didn't feel the peace I thought I would and "Willie!" I cried out until it struck me that my boy was gone for good now I rot in prison counting days until they kill me for the heinous thing I wish I could erase and the only thing that comforts me is thinking about my boy William's face
