The Seven Deadly Sins

The seven deadly sins

Wrap me up in fire

The Devil’s flaming tongue

Curses as I enter

Below the ground

Below the earth

So far down

It begins to hurt

I’m only human

The seven deadly sins.



This poem actually used to be part of a song I wrote a few years back during the summer when I locked myself in my room with my guitar and just spewed out a ton of songs. I never quite liked the lyrics but the chorus always stuck with me so I thought by turning it into a poem I could launch a series of poems about each of the “Seven Deadly Sins”!
