What's My Sin, God?: A Poem

Val is a life-long practically oriented student of effective emotional and attitudinal responses to the many challenges of life.

I didn't invite myself to come to this world

my life merely ignited by a passion's blast

spending some months passive and curled

before slapped for that first cry, not the last.

They didn't want me to be as when I was born

so soon I got remodeled more to their sample

with little encouragement, but mostly a scorn

chances to turn into myself were not ample.

Then everyone else rushed as if in a stampede

to instill into my mind what life was all about

teachers, politicians, planting their seed

insisting that there would be a sprout.

So, what turned out to be my big sin, after all

was it my almost ruthless soul's liberation

with marching into life instead of a crawl

relying on my mind without hesitation.

Maybe that is why I gave up on any god

tired of authorities and all silly preaching

accepting my sins, imperfect and flawed

just forever guided by my own teaching.
