The apple and peach trees had
an intense aroma and like sweet wine
with tiny bubbles, it slowly put me to sleep;
and soon after a goddess appeared
in a lovely spring night dream
and she told me that Heaven could be mine.
" Ah! Foolish man, you've wasted your youth
chasing after sensuality and unquenchable pleasures,
never committing yourself to one woman;
once life smiled upon you without a shadow of sadness,
now unhappiness leads you to sorrow and pulls you down
as gravity does...desire for lust is a tree that bears no fruit! "
" Be more aware of potential sexual diseases spread by some...
why chase after lust and sensual women who defile their bodies
to give unfaithful men pleasure? Remember the permissive sixties?
Everybody was having good times, not considering its outcome!
And while informing me of the dangerous reality,
the beautiful goddess revealed herself to me,
" I am Venus...the love goddess whom lovers always sought,
but times are different and love is no longer divine on anyone's thought! "
" Many cities around the globe have become the Sodom and Gomorrah condoning
homosexuality and bestiality as if their acts couldn't harm until the score is finalized;
think again: would thousands of people have died if lurid acts weren't practiced?
Read the terrifying stories of those who have died and the ones who are still dying!
