Desires bait, blocking path to heavens gate Save for pure and chaste, awaits a dark fate Consumed by ego spawned raging fire Born to perish at the funeral pyre Yet redemption ours, in stillness sedate Where lies promised joy, which will not abate How to start afresh, wiping clean life slate Conscience betrayed, are we not a liar Desires bait Oh hermit, hold still, it is not too late Cessation the way, all desires negate Pure, childlike heart is all that we require Touch divine takes us higher and higher Align head and heart with love, do not wait Desires bait 22-December-2021

Much divinity as always in your central theme, US. Desires indeed bait! Your words in purity resonate-- urging for the heart and head to align with love.
