Between Affection And Affliction - Poem by Instalasi Sastra

How cruelty an affection is,
When friend becomes foe;
And bigot start to wish,
Our love ended in woe.

How cruelty an affection is,
When virtues become vices;
And lover separated from bliss,
A conspiracy arises with malignant prices.

How cruelty an affection is,
If it impel and laid sins;
How strong the malice aforethought kissed,
Love will eventually win.
