The Seven Deadly Sins Revisited

Wrath
Do not be angry with your fellow friend
It tears you apart
And, it puts stress on your heart

Greed
No need to own more than you already have
Resolve your passion for those in need
Step up and be the one to lead

Sloth
The Truth of the Word is written
Take heed so you will not it take lightly
For the Words are not meant slightly

Pride
God gave us two meanings
We can choose to be more than we should
Or make better choices to not be misunderstood

Lust 
A powerful emotion this is, takes control
Thoughts in the mind are intense and disrupting
Prayer to the Higher Power will be the only way to interrupting

Envy
Submit not to it
No concern of others’ wealth, you have what you need
With that, you will succeed

Gluttony
Waste not your food, drink, or belongings
Those who have nothing, distribute your supply
Chances are you will get by.

    Dear Holly, you pointed out the 7 deadly sins, in a very unique way . Love the nodded fashion you used to present your form. , I like what you did with the didactic. Every one of the sins are pin pointed right. I think the greed one can teach a small lesson as well. I see the 2 prides you are talking about. The rhymes are well fitted in your poem. Thank you for always taking your time, and reading my poems.. your the best.. always~ pd
