What Do We Deserve?-poem

by Samuel De Lemos

I’m in a constant state
of repentance
I repent,
I’m broken.
I deserve that—
Daniel repented
He died shortly after
He prayed fervently.
He was broken.
Did he deserve that?
He was in a constant
state of repentance too.
Sometimes people die broken
even after they repented.
To deserve or not to deserve it,
therein lies the question.
