Saints and Sinners

SAINTS AND SINNERS No human being on this planet is perfect Everyone in blood and flesh errs but the degree varies Saints or sinners they have their own controversies But time, place ,circumstance and nature of act… Holds mirror to tag them as sinners or saints Today’s sinner might be a saint tomorrow Today’s saint might be a sinner tomorrow Society’s decision, its perception, belief system Most of the time judges them with precision But story does not conclude here…… Few acts are forbidden, degrading no matter what Any person who does such is sure to fall Few acts are pious, brings blessings to all Any person does this gets elevated in all The next aspect is the number of good qualities…. Sinners and saints have in them both good and bad But saint expresses more good over bad The sinner does the opposite sans remorse Between a Sinner and Saint there’s only a thin barrier They don’t stay in water-tight compartments A pricking conscience is always there in between Who acts listening to the inner voice would err little And he will attract huge followers for his genuineness And would be a saintly person attracting glory And the one who repeatedly trespasses piling up errs Will soon be a sinner digging his own grave For he will attract more hate and curse sans pardon!

The saint and the sinner refuge have found in the soul of Man thus implicating themselves in a mortal combat and pending of the winner the person either a sinner is declared or a saint! Wonderful profound poem dear, Anulaxmi. Good luck and a seven!

Attracting glory without sorry You belong to a wonderful story: With cherubs and saints hoary Thus I follow my innocent poney Reminding me Cioran: ”Tears and Saints” Who died for love, and their complaints;
