Life, Poetry


A deadly sin signs every fall.
Sins are not just things invented by religion.
They are crimes against all humanity.

What is pride but arrogance?
And arrogance deceit?

My friend said hope is “our desire
To somehow impose our story
On the world.” Her words.

Poets’ stories are humble, not proud.
They try to make sense of all lives.

A politician lies, imposes war on
The innocent because of pride.
That’s sin.
