Poem #333 of 365

synonyms for sin:

you look away as loving words are spoken to you.

you keep windows closed when the air is fresh outside.

you forget that food tastes best when it is shared.

you stifle a hum, a song, a whistle in your mouth.

you disdain your body's scent and mask with store-bought smells.

you avoid learning the burn of your muscles working hard.

you greet strangers sternly until you start to need them.

you ignore your dreams when they are boats for your journey.

you believe that curiosity is only for kids and kittens.

you live your life without living.
