A Saint!
No, not I, not me,
I am perfect can’t you see,
Whatever made you think I could?
Or even that I would,
Was it all along your goal?
To paint me less than whole,
It makes me wonder, with such thought,
You haven’t sinful thinking caught,
It’s not unusual to paint some phantom,
And leave the innards wanton,
Bare bones without much filling,
I find this rather chilling,
You as I, have many parts, to make a whole,
Not just bones, but, flesh and soul,
An integrated whole, with good and bad,
There is no other to be had,
And if all my sins would leave me,
All that’s good, would also flee,
Unless you think, your sins are faint,
Compared to mine, then you’re a Saint!

"Better than thou" some like to say, and we can add that they think to be better than everyone else, isn't that a sin? and Saints aren't sinners...

Reviewed by John Domino 7/3/2008
Very Good!

No human here on earth is perfect. We are all sinners.

Good message!

Quite a few self proclaimed 'saints' around these days, my friend.

We all have imperfections and to acknowledge that fact makes us better people, but Saint's, never, great writing...

Be always safe,

This is very good :-).No one is perfect.The way I look at life,all of us try so hard to be like Superman where in reality each and every one of us have a kryptonite.We all have sin before,but we have to learn from our mistakes and become better people in front of God because that is what he wants out of us.

Reviewed by Lois Christensen 7/1/2008
We are all saints in God's sight as long as we believe in him and his coming. We have to believe he is the savior of the world and then nobody can tell us we are not a saintly. But to live saintly ways are hard to do. We all sin and come up short of the glory of God. Wonderful poem, just so spiritual, makes me want to cry.
