A Poem by Tori Jones

Why is the world full of sin
We do so much wrong
Why do we let it win
Us over until we've gone
Too far to take it back
Or to even hide 
What we've done
We know we sin
But why
Why is it done
Why can't it be
Something else
Someing beautiful
But instead we choose
To be hateful
And sinful
And I am ashamed to say
I have sinned terribly
I admit I have been there
And done that
I wish I could take it back
But I can't 
If I said I could
That would be a lie
For I have sinned
But I am asking 
For forgiveness
And a second chance
To start over
And not do the things I have done
When you're a sinner
You never feel like a winner
But rather a loser
All because of what you've done...

great poem. I could really feel your pain

Posted 7 Years Ago

There's certainly a meaningful message in this piece ... it's sad when people do wrong (or sin) whenever they know that their actions aren't right. The wisdom expressed in the first five lines was especially poignant; sometimes we sin so much that there seems like there is nothing that can fix it. This seemed like a personal write, and I thank you for sharing it.

Some times depending on the sin it is not always bad. I find myself at those crossroads every day with the people I interact with.
