The Fight Within! - Poem by Salman Javid

Vice is a great virtue of the wicked,
It emancipates him of the banes of:
Honesty, hardwork, and endurance;
It liberates his soul of:
Morality, truth and righteousness;
So the wicked is left with nothing within;
And he pleases himself as he wishes,
But he’s never satisfied,
Because he can’t ever be satisfied,
And always remains a pitiable soul;
Who roves aimlessly to please himself,
And no matter what the world calls him;
He knows that he is empty from within,
As he has left with no fight within!
