Human Desire

Human desire craves omnipotence.
It is destructive like a demon’s wrath.
Yet we let it rule the world and us.
We know its poison but choose to ignore it.

It brings temptation to our intemperance.
Hankers for pleasures and mental thrills.
Demands nourishment for our passions.
Ruthlessly encourages our sins.

Still without this demanding human hunger,
Civilization would stop on its tracks.
The foundations of our world could crash.
Because desire is a knife with two edges.

We need this driving force to challenge in
Ourselves the pure, astonishing power
That dormant lies in our souls waiting
To be awakened so that, at last, It can rule.
