Chastity, A Myth - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A prey of the pursuit
Or a pawn of the assault
Though one may fall,
The one is not unchaste.

A victim of the molestation
Or a ruin of the rape
Though one is made,
The one is not unchaste.

A model, a nude
Or love embrace on stage,
Though one may do,
The one is not unchaste.

Enough to be a coquette,
No need of adultery,
One practices infidelity.
Tumbles down the chastity.

Never in nakedness,
Never in sexy touch,
But only secret relation,
Chastity is tarnished.

Seduction of mind,
Followed or not by
Seduction of body
Tells upon ones chastity.

Whoever lived
That has lived not
Without the seduction of mind?
Then where is the chastity?

Chastity is a myth
Without a pith.

    The romance seduction or rape of the mind
    is truly the father or mother of the deed.

    Interesting thoughts well crafted.
