Temptation - Poem by Josey Alfred
All get freedom, as nature’s gift!
But few alone treat it as gift
And we deface the word so much
And break the peace on earth as such.
Though freedom is an obscure boon,
You yield to caution firm, as soon!
Or else you fall in dungeon deep,
And embrace woe and disturbed sleep.
Satan knew well that, vain ladies would
Just fall prey to temptations fold!
Will take quick jump, abrupt unsure,
And fall in trap, and hot censure.
Desire to use, knowledge that would,
Gain us access, to illegal gold
Get us engulfed in tangles tight,
And lead us to despairs and fright.
