It's like you've chosen between sin and fun the same. Becareful of your choices,it may bring you shame. Especially if your chasing a dream,or fame. If your careless with your actions ,aren't you to blame?

Temptations

Sometimes it can feel like your alone in this game.

It's like you've chosen between sin and fun the same.

Becareful of your choices,it may bring you shame.

Especially if your chasing a dream,or fame.

If your careless with your actions ,aren't you to blame?

A man chases a woman ,his love he proclaims.

Sex before marriage ,may leave you insane.

One time ,the rest of your life your paying.

An empty shell staring from the window pane.

Your heart shattered in pieces from the pain.

On your reputation, this could leave a dirty stain.

From this destruction ,you must repair your brain.

Compose yourself,make better choices to substain.

Now on a better path, your goals can be obtained.

Thank you for your objective view of my contreversial poem .

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
