Even The Birds Knew

That day, when worlds
lip gloss was on sale.

Distracted with all
that was superficial,
you smoked ,
more than normal.

You always knew,
it was easier to ignore
the notion of sin,
than prepare another life.

You trusted God
would not reveal
the pain you caused.
Because the pious
would no longer
praise you.

He knew, you knew,
even the birds knew
there was something
wrong with you.

That the inner you,
would terrorize
