Sirens of the World

We admire the real saints and sages
But are too lazy, too distracted
To follow their footsteps

Because the fair of the world enchants
Its glitter steals our attention
Makes false promises

Binding us in a thousand wishes, desires
Into a labyrinth of delusions
Captivating us like Odysseus’ sirens

We should close our ears and eyesโ€ฆ.
