Book character hint poem

I have used the hint given for April 21st, the character from my most recently read book. Here is a short one through the eyes of Jonathan Pine, main character from The Night Manager by John Le Carre.



I must forget my past,
It haunts with bloody accusation -
My own sins condemn,
Of action and inaction.
But I must avenge -
Though my revenge will be sweet,
I'll pull the rug from beneath his feet
And win back my own life,
Learn to be myself,
whoever he may be,
And win her too,
So that she can be
A person, free to move 
With no fear of retribution.
