The deadly seven

The deadly seven

Although engulfed in sea's stormy stride,
even the killer tides failed to eat false pride,

Living entirely in self, want and greed,
creating divide in name of colour, caste and creed,

Kindness, sincerity and love that were must,
through entire life we were wrapped up in lust,

No help came as ship dwindled for an anchor,
Despair floated as we sank in our own anger, 

As if born to live forever, nurtured gluttony,
Ate up resources and nature's harmony,

Sparked the green eyed monster in malignity,
Friends surpassing, blazing embers of envy,

Not working hard as the worthy, lying in sloth,
Losing effervescence and expecting froth,

Only if a man could shun the deadly seven,
will open the golden gates to serene heaven.

    Your vice is added to the countless others that hear your words and see a world in pain. Your mind set flows onto the page and we can relate with you and where your words lead us. Emile.
