Basically Speaking! - Poem by Dr John Celes

You cannot do a dirty job
Appearing always clean;
You cannot live in vice all life,
And have a virtuous soul!

You cannot wear just tattered clothes
To attend banquet feast;
You cannot be unsterile and
Perform clean surgery!

You cannot be a patriot,
And help the enemies;
You cannot live a life of sin
Awaiting miracles.

You cannot sin repeatedly,
Expect God’s forgiveness;
You cannot stay a Satan’s child,
And enter God’s Abode.

You cannot kill the innocent
Babe, growing in your womb;
For, murder is a crime and sin
Mortal, that God detests.

You cannot cut the thread of life
For anyone on earth;
The Creator is life-giver:
So, He alone can take!

You cannot break God’s Commandments
Willfully, by habit;
God will not forgive mortal sins,
Unless you change your life.

You cannot go against God’s laws,
And be in grace, sin-free;
You cannot be in mortal sins
And think God will forgive.

Adultery is mortal sin;
Prostitution is adultery;
Murder is mortal sin;
Feticide and abortion are murders in the womb.

Breaking any of the Ten Commandments
Of God is a mortal sin;
The price of sin is death;
The price of mortal sin
Is Eternal Damnation i.e. HELL!
A good Christian knows this too well.

Yet, Jesus paid a ‘bloody price’
And gave His life on cross;
‘Will you not give up sins and vice? ’,
The Savior asks of us.

The LENT is meant
For you and me
To reconcile with God;
Each LENT is lent,
By love of God
To lessen our just rod.
