The Size of Sin

The size of sin is as small as a grain of sand,
but separates between wide ocean and dry land
It’s bigger than bad habits;
it’s a matter of man
seeking for God’s spot
following in same pattern as Adam
Its deep rooted
we are the seed of a broken family tree
branching out limbs of disease.
Look at this mess we leave
This weight of wickedness is heavy as lead
trying to catch its descents like stopping a falling rock in a spider’s web
It’s thin silk thread begins to snap
and all that’s left is the residue that sticks between the cracks
It all ends with a slip into a bottomless pit,
grips the heart in the man’s chest till swallowing death
Sipping from the glass of God’s wrath and genuine justice
a just judge must summons for infinite punishment
That when applying we’re undeniably liable
The smallest white lie is enough to be indictable
The size of sin so big it causes a cosmic fraction
and Hell is the only relevant response to righteous reaction
This is what our sinful actions actually earned us,
but God took upon himself the weight of sin reserved for us;
a weight so significant
that only the blood of an innocent
one is acceptable and worthy
So rather than make light of it
or minimize the size of it,
we should marvel at the magnitude of mercy
