I ate my sins,
Yes, every one,
I ate them so
That they’d be done;
I didn’t know
It would be wrong
To eat my sins,
I thought as long
As they were here
I’d eat them so
I’d have no fear
That they would show;
And so I ate
The sins I saw
Believing that
There’d be no flaw,
And thus I ate
Quite hastily
The sins I felt
Would soon eat me;
But now it seems
I cannot hide
And that my sins
Now dwell inside;
The truths I tried
To cover up
Were not the crumbs
Left in my cup.

  5. I am amongst those who demand whatever they eat to taste godly, so sins were never on my plate ) I find this poem to be very wise, I reminds me of “The Poison Tree”

    1. Sins can actually taste quite sweet; it’s their digestion that can be problematic. Many thanks for your comment. 🙂
