“Sinful Virtue”

If we do not cure mankind's Lust,
Chasity will roam dark halls
in an orgy of chaotic mayhem.

Always the Gluttony of humanity
to be soothed by Temperance, 
or the world will burst at the seems.

The green icon Greed must stop now,
look into our hearts for Charity
instead of silver cups with no hope.

It is Sloth that eats us alive daily
when we need Diligence,
to grow to higher expectations.

Instead of slashing out in Wrath
cure the world with Patience,
a gentle tender heart of love's hand.

Put aside our Pride long enough,
serve the world with Humility,
give of yourself now unconditionally.

If not. . .  the seven sins will shine,
in a world where love should be a virtue.

I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time.
