The Works of the Law

Living by the law,
dying because of the failings
impossibilities of perfection
of never straying, never stumbling
never faltering, even a mite
no, living by the law, the imperatives,
shalls and shall nots, they are not
the things of human life
the gray of the choices, decisions
tiny moments in the crossroads
when left, right, straight forward,
over back where we came from
all seem equally viable
living by the law
leads to death
