How Human can I be without Great Sin?

How Human can I be without Great Sin?

How human can I be without great sin

With dreams that rock along a mountain edge

On feelings that have driven famed women

Although they balance on a stony ledge?

My flesh alerts me to my selfish need

To free the thoughts of my artistic mind,

But God won’t let me write it on my own.

Since I am trying to plant the perfect seed,

I think what I dare write in these confines,

Till God frees me from these restricted lines,

So I can be more human in my tone.
