Who Am I?

When asked who he was

On first becoming pope

Francis paused and considered it

What a question! How to cope!

 

After considered silence

Francis made reply

I am a sinner he said at last

A response to make you cry

 

To know that you’re a sinner

A frail and feeble soul

Is not a self-destroying thing

But a truth to make you whole

 

What God has made is wonderful

And greatness is our goal

But if we wander from the Lord

We’ll destroy what should be whole

 

I am a sinner know it well

Such knowledge is a key

It will open up compassion

It will set your heart so free
