The one who was told
"Don't let anger control you!"
What if that's all that dwells at times?
Anger at everyone around me
"Don't let yourself be a sloth!"
What if it's not that I'm lazy
But that I did this wrong
And that wrong
And just gave up
"Do not be envious of others!"
But it's so hard not to be
When you watch everyone else around you
Happy as can be, while you're still in the dark
Wishing for what they have
"Do not dabble in lust!"
What of the girl
Who feels used and is tormented
By her blackest of sins
And loss of respect for herself
"Do not become to proud!"
So is it better to feel the opposite
To have lower than low self-esteem
Wishing for the world to end
On a daily basis
"Do not be gluttonous!"
Is it better for the people
Who refuse to eat anything
Because of their distorted image
And let themselves waste away
"Do not let yourself be greedy!"
What if it's hard to control
And the desire for so much love
Until you can barely contain it
