Asaint


I was called a saint today
the words that seem to sting
how could I be THAT man
perfect for everything
I know I’m not the Christ you sought
I never wished to be
so please don't taint my wisdom
and tell your lies to me
don't pretend I’m something more
even if you feel the need
than I really am
because of my good deeds
but I was called a saint today
even with all my crimes
I don't deserve this honorable speech
I’ve sinned too many times

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
