It Is A Sin

It is a sin for Gregory to be a miser even to himself accumulating infinite fortune with a half-bedroom to show for it It is a sin for miss Zane to gain special gratitude from her male mates. Coming late every night with a different driver, parading her flashy dividends as she becomes a model for fashion updates It is a sin for Sarah, not taking care of herself with her body becoming rounder but still feeds more than an entire Orphanage. Initially, a very attractive young lady but now looks like an Old sorcerer. It is a sin for Baker to be a clergy and at the same time a gambler lavishing in style and losing without remorse Hell will let loose if his sponsor is the Church's finance. Regardless of his anointing, he's still not beyond the people's wrath. It is a sin for Dawson to drive through many open legs as he jumps from skirt to skirt and acquainting himself with all forms of underwear, playing the bad guy who never gets caught. It is a sin to stay idle and observe them wrongly drawing conclusions from every action without minding their motives or reasons analyzing closely even while sitting from afar giving no consideration to the human Nature which exists in imperfection and faint stains. It is a sin castigating the weaknesses of others while overlooking mine thereby condemning the crimes I do not commit which does not make me better either. As much as they do not know where I faulter Judging them makes me worst than a sinner.

    As I was reading this poem I though I'm not into point out the sins of others but non the the less the poem was well written but the end was the best part, the admission of knowing and accepting you were just as sinful. Enjoyed this piece tremendously.

    Hi Funom, This is very well written. The message you send through this poem is loud and clear. It is so true that some people find nothing wrong with judging others, without facing their own faults. Well done. God Bless Pam x

    Very descriptive and expressive work..It is easier to see others faults or sins than it is to see our own..Great work..Thanks for stopping by my work "The Death Angel"..I have finished it if you care to return and read the ending..Sara

    Hullo, Funom. This poem is sound, sage advice for sure. I still have to push down the urge to judge from time to time, even though I realize it is such a fundamental flaw....but I am trying. I enjoy the formatting of this prose poem as well.

    Excellent poem Funom, about the process of judging people and how it makes life so difficult for everyone.

    Wow Funom, this was sooo well well done! I love it's honesty and how it speaks from your heart (and not just your brain)... I receive your message loud and clear, it does not bode well to do any of these things (but you can't judge others lest you judge yourself as well)... powerful poem! Adding it to my favorites!

    I love this poem, it is well written and well thought out. Bravo. I am glad to see there are stilll others who recognize what sin is and have the mind to speak up against it.

    Thanks terry... But also, the main point of this poem is to discourage judging others... As much as we judge others and see their sins, we should also know that we aren't perfect and even worse... Thanks for the comment bro and have a lovely weekend.
