Desire is like a fire.
It burns within the soul
It cannot be put out
and it makes a person whole
Setting it aside would make one feel content
But contentment only happens for a while
For desire builds up
And soon, there’s more in life to aspire
Behold in life a transition
There arise such dreams and visions
Along comes the longing to fulfill
Such high ambitions
All life long builds up the desire
Until soon it will become so great
Until one will take action
Life will just seem a worthless fate.
