The 4th Deadly Sin

Sloth - Universal Life Church

Sloth closes our eyes

making us drift away

away from hard work

admit it, we are its prey.

…..

What happens when we wake up?

a force holds us down

so we lie in bed just for some more time

there is no reason to frown.

…..

In a dreamy palace

which is just right for each one of us

we are reigning like kings and queens

one thing we are happy without, is fuss.

…..

So many calls from work

which we often ignore

most of us don’t know what trouble

stands at our door.

…..

Family and friends seem to be forgotten

‘how is that possible’ you may think

but all of us fall for this sin by mistake

this problem cannot be solved in a blink.

…..

The solution always depends on what you believe

it depends on your diligence to become better

sloth is convenient for us

it is a pleasure.

Now, go back to the beginning of this poem and read the message written in bold!

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
