Addicted!


Addition is too much,
Too much I fear, Fear is to sin
Sin is addiction
We not need to be addicted!

Let me not sin
Let me not go against the laws of the library
Let me not be addicted to you, neither you to me
For us to be together, we not need to be addicts.

Laughter is pleasure,
Smile is happiness,
Joy cleanse your soul,
We not need to be addicted!

Addiction is too much,
Too much I fear, fear is sin,
Sin is addiction.
We not need to sin.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
