The Bitter Lessons Of Lust


Illegal lust!
With empty dreams in the land of sin;
But, for how long will they rape the women around?

Muse!
With the way before it and, the way after it;
And, to learn the bitter lessons of lust.

Illegal lust!
Like the seeds among thorns;
But, who is ready to tell them the truth?

Life!
With the riches that chokes the earth;
But, every man has a woman inside him and,
Every woman has a man inside her.

Fire! !
They are playing with life;
With the sins of the world as seen everywhere.
