A Slave

A slave I have become

to this lump of blood and bones,

to this lifeless lump of matter.

Slaving day and night

to the senses and the mind.

Slaving day and night

to my mindless pride.

Slaving day and night

in this endless vicious ride.

Burning with desire,

intoxicated with lust and greed,

blow after blow,

the mind assaults my heart-

‘I want this, I want that, I want it all!’

Alas, a slave I have become!
