This fourth poem is a part of the anthology of poems based on the Seven deadly sins.
Do read the previous ones too, if you haven’t yet.
Greed(Avaritia): an excessive pursuit of material possessions.
“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
A sin of desire
wanting everything around you
anything shiny catches your eye
blinded by the lustrous variegated glazes
dissolving the thin line
between the need and wants
drowning your eternal self
for the bare materialistic
wealth and superfluous possessions
you have turned your self
into a hoarder, an insane gatherer
this greed, the mortal sin
the want of more and more
will never end.
spiraling down the rabbit hole
heading for a shiny mirage
you are destined for
that unfortunate end.
