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?
