A prisoner,
Locked up by his wants,
Chained by his curiosity,
Indifferent to the war of survival
that needs him to break the bonds
Of love.
There is no place for him
in this free world,
For he does not want to win,
He wants peace.
A satisfaction of being able to
Fulfill his wants,
Of knowing that which is there
to be known,
unaware that that the real world
will catch up with him soon
And tear him apart.
Jailed by his temptation,
He is happier than the
‘Free people’, killing each other
With the ‘freedom’ they have.
A prisoner of temptation
In the island of love .
