the blind man’s crime…

 

when death
came
to the old man
he was surprised
to find himself
at
hell’s gate
what have i done
he cried
was it not enough
that
i was sightless
in
a sighted world
ah said satan
you refused
to
listen
and
respond
to the misery
you heard
all around you
instead
you bemoaned
your own lot
on
earth
as i recall
from
my
extensive studies
of
the good
book
that’s
a sin of omission

  1. Me thinks the sin of omission pales compared to the sin of commission. If the former sends one to hell, well then we are all damned. ‘Tis a no win covenant attached to this “gift” called life.

    Ah, but I forget. As long as one confesses and pays 10% tithe, salvation is the light at the end of the tunnel. LOL!
