Sin and Goodness

Sin and goodness

Are separated by a razors edge.

~

This pair expounded

By the fallible minds of men.

~

One only need look internal

To see their own fallibilities.

~

A query is begged of you;

Are the sins of the single mother,

Who resorts to harlotry to feed her children,

Any greater a sin in the eyes of God

Than those of the wealthy who hoard their riches

While ignoring the plight of the poor and infirm?

~

True sin resides in greed and contempt,

Goading sin from otherwise good souls.

~

The mothers desperation urged by good intent,

While the wealthy was compelled

Out of selfishness and pomposity.

~

Lines between sin and goodness blur

Through the perceptions of man.

~

Objectivity escapes us in our passion;

Making us the poorest of judges.

~

Would not their fates be best left

To the sagacity of God?
