Treat yourself to all the best of life!
Have some love and friendship, passion, beauty!
In these you'll find a lasting happiness,
Regardless of the risk of pain or stress,
The tough commitment to some long-term duty.
Yet some find little more than constant strife.

Ecstasy, adventure, wealth, and things
Inward flow to vanish in the self,
Granting much in pleasure, less in joy.
Hearts rarely come to full bloom on the shelf,
Though watered well in sun their sweet love sings.
