Believe in yourself,

Pride comes before destruction,

And do not be vain.

 

The green eyed monster,

Envy of others is bad,

Nothing good will come.

 

There is not enough,

Gluttony takes it away,

We'll eat forever.

 

Wrath is just anger,

Spurn love and opt for fury,

Anger turns to hate.

 

They take from the poor,

Greed for material wealth,

Those without will die.

 

Lust for the body,

There is physical desire,

A primal instinct

 

Sloth is the lazy,

Spiritual, physical,

Avoidance of work.
