Sin (poem)

Updated on April 27, 2015



When you do what you’re not supposed to do,

When you want and like it too,

To go against a holy law;

Got embraced and pierced by the devil’s claw,

When you can no longer see what He saw,

Sin is where you are, sin is who you are.


Sin is the gate for death to enter in,

A tragedy for souls; it cannot win.

A curse, a plague and a disease that takes away life,

Purged in darkness, flees from the light,


It’s by choice like accepting a proposal

But when you say yes to it,

You become enslaved, used for its disposal,

It’s full of worthless pleasure,

Satisfies the lusts of the flesh beyond measures,


It’s all fun now, you become king somehow,

The power to do as you please,

The freedom of its momentary liberty,


But when the clock strikes the hour of your demise,

Too late it will be,

You will now come to realize,


All those moments when truth stepped in,

But you stayed in sin,

All those days when you looked away from Calvary,

And chose to join in sin’s tragedy,

All those people you called liars and hypocrites for telling you the trouble you’re in,

You will know they wanted you to be with them as they enter in,


For it will be for them a different day,

You in anguish but they in heaven’s way;

And it’s all because of their Savior,

Whom they walked with every day,

The way, the truth and the life,

The One you struggled to ignore day and night,


Jesus, His holy name is,

Jesus, the only Savior who conquered death and sin,

Jesus who loved you and died for you,

Yet you made your choices,

Invitations to repentance are all gone,

The way you lived cannot be undone.

      Michelle, what a simple (but not simplistic) truth you established through your poetry. "Jesus" the way! Thanks and well done!
