Sinner - Poem by Courtney Helsel

How would you prefer to die;
A violent stab to the heart,
Or a giant leap into the light?

Are you worthy of a quick and subtle end,
Or are you destined to a forceful death?

And if I were to ask you,
How you lived your life;
Would you lie to cover all the sins,
Or would you truthfully admit your crimes?

Would you repent to save your soul,
Or just take your chances in hell?

And I wonder how it matters to you;
If it matters at all,
Because the end is near for you, sinner.
