Sin Of Sloth
Is it simply laziness? The curious ask.
It's more, yet; moral of mind masquerading mask;
Caring one's self less; experts assuredly say,
Moving from moral values, sloth has its shrewd way...!
Does this mean deprivation of one's precious sleep?
Does it mean one's sleeping for promises to keep?
Sloth has its conditions; it's precariousness;
It has its life-sense and multifariousness...!
Is it just mere hormonal dis-integrity?
Or malnutrition and stress-out of poverty?
Is it lack of motive fermenting from within?
Burning-off of potentials and graces grown thin?
Sheepishness of slothfulness took in me form once,
Life mine had taken directions toward great dunce;
Cast in me great sleep; for health and wealth I suffered,
When body not plowed, heart not sown, none gifts offered...!
Life needs great zeal and greatest of enthusiasm,
Slothfulness develops within greatest of spasm;
Faith and trust and hope quit from the path of your life,
Sluggishness and impatience increase your life-strife...!
Cool! Take things easy! Prohibit powerlessness!
You are your very master! Leave all hopelessness!
Courageously focus and perfect your duties,
You will, indeed, find life filled with fullest beauties...!
