What do you want?
You give me a mind to reason, and a soul to experience
and I struggle between this uncertainty and reasoning
The mind rejects, but the soul knows
Will there ever be harmony?
Contradiction will teach me, what acceptance couldn’t
but I will have to forsake my sanity
I counsel one, and the other gets louder
Is there any running away from the Pain?
Half of my life, I spent in lust of this world
shall I spend the other half
in this yearning, pain and longing?
You seem to enjoy riddling me
I can neither exist , nor cease to exist
of my own accord
A weakling I am, but you call me magnificent
I am but a poor slave
