Poem26. LOVE Way.


         belief excessive
          in own ability ,unreal .
Broken  you will be
on the wheel,in the Hell.

Envy ,
        makes us desire
        other's status,abilities.
Will be put in water,
in the Hell,that freezes .

          to consume well,
          more than one requires .
Will be force-fed in the Hell,
rats,toads, and snakes.

Lust ,
          craving pleasures,thrills
          of the body inordinate.
Will be smothered,in hell
with fire and brimstone.

          spurns love
          opts instead for fury.
Dismembered alive,
in the Hell ,you will be.

         desire to deed,
          for material wealth. 
You will be boiled
in the Hell, in oil alive.

Sloth ,
          avoidance of work
          physical or spiritual .
You will be thrown lurk
into snake pits,in the Hell.

Seven sins,
          gets these punishments ,
          in the Hell ,sure for you.
So why you go that way,
choose the LOVE way to Heaven.

Written for Jingle's poetry potluck the prompt- seven sins.
