"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


There are soldiers,
There are priests,
Sinners and saints,
But be honest.
Is there ever really,
Just one you can be?

And we all have battles.
We all fight,
We all do wrong,
And can do right.
It’s up to you,
What you do,
But I’d just be you.

Are you saying that labels like sinner and saint don't encompass the complexity of the human character, and that there are none of us without sin, but there is still incredible good within us, and that goodness is the true self? That's my stab at poem interpretation...
