Poem: Confession

The wrath of revenge

Is quietened

The greed of life

Now bankrupt

The sloth of my youth

Has departed

The pride of position

No more

The lust of my loins

Gone forever

The envy which drove me

Done and dusted

And the gluttony of years

Well fed

  1. Nic,
    How are you. It’s good to find oneself at the point where these sins are barely visible or completely gone. Sometimes we forget about the little devils, until we are kindly reminded by poems such as yours.
