Stop calling me sinner

I am a human I can err without being a sinner…

By Ekta K. Kalra Published 2 months ago 2 min read

I am worthy

if I do not sin

an error in computer

lowers its frame

but that’s how I was made

questioning my very existence

what will the world gain

let me refrain

let me refrain

from doing wrong

but then there is no mention

even in bible

of the good I can do

yes I err

that’s how I was made

the basics of life

how life can drive away

it’s easy to shout

scream on your way

in fear lives the world

we create new fear

every day

why this frown

on life’s face

I am worthy of something

why doesn’t priest

ever serves me praise

encouraged by bible


I would have been in better days

I too could smile

in church premises

But it doesn’t happen

this way

it might never happen this way

they call your little child

with its sins

I hate this way

I hate this way

for god doesn‘t

call me wise

each human

has a dirty face

of sin

the god sees it this way?

I doubt …

today I doubt…

god couldn’t write

bible anyway

I am not with

sin stuck on face

in gods eyes

I have a Beautiful face

and I am worthy

worthy of doing something



i am not listening

nor anymore approaching



but do not scream with words

do not drive me insane

do not spread the news of

human sins

you aren’t humans then


hurt by the church

I move away

there is only one other thing

equally popular

I eat my way

in restaurant

dreaming for a better

day in church

I remember

how The world evolved

I smile my way

away from frown

I look for love

I find it anyway


I won’t accept

the word sinner

for me

or us


if you cannot encourge

don’t create fuss

my way


hurt at heart

I smile my way


how much more I was obedient

to church

I was

I remembered those

tiny days
