Seven Sins

Seven children borne by me,

Each have names that suits their attributes,

Ira, Avarita, Gula, Invidia, Luxuria,

Acedia and Superbia,

Allow me to introduce them-

 

I am Ira,

I dwell deep inside you,

Carving a hole in your soul,

For the darkness, pain, betrayal and shame,

When you fall,

I will be there to greet you like an old friend.

 

I am Avarita,

I have an insatiable need to have everything,

Wealth and power in hands,

I want all this world can offer me and more.

 

I am Gula,

I overindulge in things I don’t need,

I consumed all to fill my hunger,

Filling my body with harmful substances,

For my endless cravings.

 

I am Invidia,

Jealous of other’s success and talents,

I wish to have it all,

I’m discontent quite frequently.

 

I am Luxuria,

The passionate flame,

I confuse you with love,

Have a ravenous thirst of sexual desires,

When I am around,

You can’t behave.

 

I am Acedia,

I no longer care for life or

My own well-being,

I am quite slow but don’t be fooled,

It’s really hard to get rid of me.

 

I am Superbia,

The most vain and powerful of all,

An illusion of happiness,

I corrupt the minds of

Innocence with narcissism.

 

Which of my children are you?
