Falsehood reigns worldwide
However, the seeker of truth
Cannot be vanquished
By empty promises, broken vows.
Guile and temptation
Are good deceivers
Skin-deep beauty supports both
O smiling seduction
Just get lost!
O my reawakened soul!
Let me mingle no more
With the vain and the haughty
At any cost...
I cannot sacrifice everything
When all I am left with
Is my own deep self.
Tell night and day to merge
And tell time to go off tangent
Should I care!
Why and for what?
Perhaps a revelation
To the extra sensory perception
May make me die totally.
For now, I must not forget
That I am on my toughest quest.
