The Seven Deadly Sins Revisited

Written by: HOLLY MOORE

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.
