Sometimes I am lost in wonder amazed
How men live each passing moment
As though the next would never come
What a pitiful state mankind exists in.
They drink every strong liquor
Alcohol never passes them by
They gulp down passionately as though their lives depend on it
The glory of chastity has been demystified
The beauty of fidelity has been traded for ashes
The virtue of virginity, a dignified and unfathomable mystery
What value is left in mankind?
Womanhood has lost her glory,
The images of glory that once entrapped man of womanhood
All lost to the speed of technology and fashion
What a shame!
The discipline that, once men were Claded in, a passing illusion
He bemoans the debasement of womanhood, and yet contributes to its fall
He throws money at her and commands the narcissism out of her
Poor women, how many of them can resist?
I dream of a world where mankind walks with honor
Where women walk tall with pride, honor and self-dignity
A world order where all men are committed to inexplicable integrity
Then and only then can the world come close to the purpose of its creation.
