Not a Sinner or a Saint

My halo has small crack that no one else can see... Its my little secret that stays below and never shall fly free... I hold a door and tip my hat ,but an angel that's not me... If I pull out a chair or give up my seat its what I want to be... Saints and sinners I sit between like a branch in a tree... I'll do best and not to shake the fruit or take a bite from Eve...
