The Knot
by Sarah E. Bennett

When I forget,
or do something wrong,
a little knot,
will come along.
It sits in my stomach,
for what seems like a day.
And until I’m forgiven,
it won’t go away.
This happens in school,
when my homework isn’t found,
or when I get into trouble,
for being a clown.
The knot makes my stomach,
feel very tight.
My heart starts beating,
like I’ve had a fright!
Then it goes away,
till I get in trouble,
and then . . . and then . . .
The knot strikes again!!!
