We are victims of this world;
victims each in his own way.
Weakened we are, and tired of sinning,
hungry to fulfill yesterday’s worthless desires again today.
We are silently aware of the poisons
that cause us to be falsely nurtured;
but craving beings are we
and so we remain victims, submittingly.
We are beings with the power to nourish our own
and the power to destroy the same.
Pathetic we are, as we seek happiness
in vices that cause our souls to cower in shame.
We are beings, knowingly aware.
Ignorant we choose to remain
for we are lost; a lost existence
in pursuit of what is insane.
