Haiku Poetry 10 Day Challenge #4: Who’s To Blame?

when the desire has passed

then the story ends.

Who’s to blame if all begins with lust and desire? From the desire to satisfy the physical desires and the desire to have. It may even be a worship of matter and greed.

In this case, for any reason, we are not victims. Even Lao Tzu says, “There is no greater crime than desire.”

There always been a paradigm war between the wise and the motivator of material success to prove the essence of purity and greatness of ownership, simplicity, and luxury, between “no desire to desire” and “powerful desire”.

I’m not advocating any choice, but what do you think?

This post is my participation in following the Haiku Poetry challenges which have started by LaJenna. If you are willing to join, here is the rule.

  1. I believe that our desires come from what we are lacking. If someone has been divorced for years, they may be desiring anything and everything. Oh, I know, some people say,”it is only human nature.” Maybe it is to a degree, but if lust and desire is not put in its place, then it will take power over us. Desires are natural, but I hope people know how to feel desires in a positive way. Too much of it could break up marriages etc. Does this make sense Albert? Your poem is great, and very thought provoking.

  2. Esoterics and mystics believe that our desires can be fulfilled if we write them properly. Many religious people also believe in this. The interraction is that there is a tornado in our head of thoughts that can not be fixed and sent as a desire to the universe. But if we can concentrate on our particular desire, it is very likely that the things we dream for will come true.
