Desire - Poem by Mihaela Pirjol

We cannot aspire to that which is already dead,
And there is no solace in delusion;
We should save the present for future memories
Thus, to remember we had a life we lived.

No soul which is born alone and dies alone ever pertain
To anyone, on this mortal realm of mortals;
Nothing we are, but an evanescent breath of air;
Utopian significance of being insignificant.

How a superbus phallus in carnal pleasure dies,
That ephemeral all these earthly passions are;
Like the face of moon from dusk till dawn
When sun replace its ardour with other kind of warmth.

Why consume our breath in yearning, suspiration?
Desire's flames need oxygen, - and that will suffocate us;
The chastity of senses shall purge our spirits pure,
And rise above this Life whose claim is to endure.

    A philosophy superbly constructed over a firm foundation with the bricks of experience and experimentation in life. This is greatly sensible. Thanks. I would like to quote a few lines:
    We should save the present for future memories
    Utopian significance of being insignificant.
    The chastity of senses shall purge our spirits pure,

    Influenced by greed,
    incensed by hate,
    confused by delusion,
    overcome by them,
    obsessed by mind,
    a man chooses for is own affliction,
    for others’ affliction,
    for the affliction of both,
    and experiences pain and grief.
    - Gauthama Buddha
    This is all about it. Nothing more to say. Your understanding about desire, places yourself aptly. Congratulations! X

    Passion is from the same root as passive. One must not allow it to rule.
