A bed without rest
Mahogany sculptured frame
Large and spacious
As soft and smooth as velvet,
Hypnos I suppose.
Another tiring day in the world,
Wrestling with sin made me whirl.
So many filthy fruits I've eaten,
O, when will they digest?
Bed with no rest!
Posh cars, fifty acre land,
Flat screen televisions,
Chandeliers, marbled tiles and
What else is there to obtain:
Helicopters and aeroplanes,
a yacht, a submarine?
Closets of tuxedos,
I'm Sick and tired of clothes.
How much can I indulge?
Got everything I've lusted
Yet my desires are clustered.
Laying down in my luxurious condo,
I was contemplating about my covetousness and my ego.
I had more than surplus,
Yet for so long was i craving more and more.
What didn't I have?
what didn't I know?
Been exhausted in my pursuit for vanity,
I lost all my charity.
I Can't recall the last day I've slept properly.
Sophistication brought me toil and sweat;
A wrought of regret.
After so long,
finally I've found rest!
The one and only.
Not vanity, nor Mammon, nor luxury.
But Jesus Christ:
The best of the bests,
king of all kings and Lord of Lords.
A bed of rest!
