“So pure in thought and word and deed”…

Arent-We-All-Sinners

~

All of us are sinners…
To some extent or degree…
Carrying the scars of life…
Not one of us is clean…
Seeking some forgiveness…
From those who sit on high…
Who stand in final judgement…
And look down upon our lives…

Not one of us is perfect…
We all have hidden pasts…
Memories we’ve locked away…
With pain that ever lasts…
Looking for an answer…
Seeking out some truth…
It’s been that way forever…
Before the days of our youth…

All of us are longing…
For something better than this…
And someone to hold at night…
To love them and to kiss…
But even when we find it…
Life plays silly games…
Takes you to strange places…
Introduces different names…

Most of us avoid it…
And live a life within…
Life’s unwritten set of rules…
Yet sometimes we give in…
Rules are made for bending…
And breaking from the norm…
Carving out our own path…
And refusing to conform…

All of us are lonely…
Yet ourselves we just deceive…
Tell people we are happy…
And refuse to let them see…
What’s going on inside us…
We must keep it locked away…
Sitting in our mind’s eye…
Until that fateful day…

When our emotions betray us…
And we stop wearing the mask…
Our lives disintegrate so quickly…
This was never built to last…
Because we’re a fraction of a moment…
A fragment within space and time…
And all of us are sinners…
We have all committed a crime…
