a poem about the sins of humanity

I know hunger

I know pain

I know sorrow

I know how to obtain

I know how to push and shove

shout and scream

but of love? I know nothing

I am sin

I am war

I am evil to the core

You can try and cast me out and throw me away

but have no doubt, I shall always stay

I am with you at all times

I will forever be your crime

I inhabit you like a vole

I am the dark part of your soul

Growing in power, I'll make your soul go sour

and then I'll wait for your final hour

After I've did the deed, I wonder if you'll plant the seed

the seed that destroys me

A seed that only I can see

A seed made of light

A seed that will smite me

Its up to you to close my door

the choice is completely yours
