Sinners and Saints


One man's loss, is another man's gain.
The man who has lost, is then never the same.
The man who has won, not sure what he's done,
to deserve the reward, to be placed in the sun.
The man who has won, didn't do very much.
The choice wasn't his, not his as such,
but rather the prize, that chooses the winner,
between one that's a saint, and one that's a sinner.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
