She'll be loved, a modest, pure and golden Love, but hers is lust . . A teenage dream of youth today Refraining from true trust; Explosive social tendencies to Decide her right from wrong, Human instincts not so human But a technologic song- It shall hum to her desire, In another whom she'll cross; Mechanic works inside her brain, Must force her soul a loss. Such a choice yet to be made, Though no pain inside shall pass. Due to social tendencies, Yes, due to social tendencies . . His heartache be her last

    This just pops and clicks with undertones of profundity. A classic.

    Love and lust can be a bust when hearts get intertwined. Body and soul can take their toll, confusing your poor mind. So say your prayer's with all your might. And with God's grace, it'll be alright.
