Escape

Beings wanting pleasure,
filled with sensual desire,
grasping at that which they perceive,
clinging to that which they have,

losing everything when Death takes them…

Recklessly seeking their preferences,
taking from those who have,
disputing, threatening, fighting,
hoarding it all away someplace secret,

destroying themselves with their vile deeds…

Beasts facing the elements in the wild,
unsatisfied spirits bewildered and alone,
beings of constant fighting and violence,
life after life of burning torment,

all of these sorry states await…

Renouncing pleasure-seeking,
holding the mind steady, peaceful,
composed of reason, wise and virtuous,
offering truth to all who dare ask for it,
the Hells abandoned forever,

assured of victory against Death…

An escape is known

by those who have tread well the path.
