The Seven Deadly Sins


Pride

You notice nothing, where only the best matters
Watch as your life swings past you, laugh as it scatters
Notice no beauty in anything, only your own greed
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Avarice/Greed

You always want more, money is all you are
All the times you fight for fame, your just adding another scar
Like humans are here, just to tend to your every need
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Envy

Constantly see others better, no more then Perverted Love
Like your waiting to die, like they will let you above
Like your forever waiting, you'll never precede
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Wrath/Anger

Living insane, unable to reason and smile
You think physical abuse is needed, you think its worthwhile
You see humans as nothing, only to mislead
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Lust

Females to you are nothing, just for Perverted Love
Like their here for the taking, just here to shove
You think their here for abuse, like to your sick shit they have agreed
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Gluttony

You always want more, you never appreciate anything
Like theres always better, you never see the pain it can bring
You want nothing but the best, you'd never dare to recede
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Sloth

You always delay on life, just to get what you want
Pushing off all your duties, your lifes just a meaningless flaunt
Just to trick and steal, off other lifes you feed
For you will slip into hell, where all of your kind will bleed

Take a look outside
Take a scent of the sweet calm air
Or open a window and forget your dispare
See life as a gift, instead of a curse
Feel the love that we have been given
Feel it everyday
Be the one to change someones day
Push aside the pain, push aside the dismay
See this life as a blessing
Love for all it is, dont let it dwindle away
The seven deadly sins...

I may be sloth and all my kind may bleed
But I don't mind because to do a good deed
Starts with planting a seed
That I would then have to sow
And going to hell seems easier especially when I don't have to go...

Vanity is the obsession with ones' self. It is the curse to see your being, your physical and mental and emotional, and to not find a single flaw. But if this is proven untrue- if the mask cracks even one hair- the sin of Pride gives in to greed.

You stop at nothing for perfection. You burn through anything you may have valued to make yourself better, for you believe there is no other purpose than perfection. Your greed lies in wanting more, more, more for yourself. Never stopping, always believing the next cream or surgery or dress shall do the job but never ending the cycle.

No sin is pure. No curse is ever brought upon by one injustice of heaven. Pride, avarice, envy, gluttony, sloth, lust, wrath. They bleed together as a palette of paint to create who we are. For it is in our sins, all our sins, that we find a need for virtue.

We all do these sins, but God still forgives us.
Very chilling, but amazing as well.

It is chilling, it sends a strong message, and it is eerily beautiful.
I have fallen victim to the seven sins more than I would like to admit.

These are all beautiful and emotional. I always feel that a poet should want people to be emotional when they read their poems whether they feel happiness, anger, or sadness. I feel that you have succeed in that here I loved everyone moment of reading and will reread later thank you.

Amazing. I love this writing, and I think it is all accurate. I can say that the years have passed, and I have felt the corresponding emotions each at least once, but I always ask for forgiveness, and try my best to keep those emotions away. This scares me though, even if I am not one to say I am prideful, but I believe in myself, but also others too. I felt jealousy, but I always remember that I am not them, and some may wish they lived as I do. I felt greedy, but I have reminded myself that I have had someone take my things all the time and I don't want that out of them, to be mooched off of. I feel lust, but I keep it all inside, since I have been harassed that way at young, so why do to them what the person who did this to me did? I don't overeat, I like good food, but I want to keep my body healthy. I have been lazy, but people more often tell me to sit down, but I know I can't just mooch off of someone and be happy. I felt anger and took it out on someone else, but then I regretted it almost instantly. I am living proof that we can all try steer ourselves from sin, and I may still be working on it, but I know I can change. This set of poems is amazing, and accurate.

So true....sadly. After reading this it made me think.......really hard about al the choices I have made and how it affected the ones arround me. Thank you, I guess you helped change my life and make me relize how such a lazy person I am. Well I'm gonna change that and do something for once....not be so lazy. Funny how something like this would make me realize this,but it was exactly what I needed to read I guess. So Thank you very much, you did a terrific job on this and I wish you luck in life and fir it to be awesome for you. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy new year.
