The Material Sin

There is nothing but this.

Golden cups and golden coins

Diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, and pearls

This is my playground, these are my toys

Watch me dance, watch me twirl

There is nothing but this.

 

***Credit for the amazing image displayed alongside this poem goes to Marta Dahlig. I found her collection of the Seven Deadly Sins years and years ago. When I decided to embark on this project, I immediately recollected her collection and knew that I wanted to showcase her amazing art. If you love this picture, be sure to check out her other work on DeviantArt.

Greed

This series of poems was written in response to a prompt that I saw on Pinterest.

Greed, or Avarice, is the focus on earthly and material objects. It ignores the individual’s spiritual health and rather focus on what can be touched, felt, accumulated, and admired.

Happy Writing Everyone!
