Let Us Curb Our Desires.


To satisfy our desires
We are in this world born
But we should not set fire to desires.

Like a fish that swims
The whole sea sans boundaries
We should not set our passion sans brims.

The fish when in the fish tank
Its boundaries established it curbs
Akin we should our desires curb
And make them lank.
