Trials Of Men

by Spiros Zafiris

war and your desire for her are one
another time and she would love you
a man cannot wait for a woman
she must love him from the start
maiden or wife, she must name only one--
only one with whom to bed
raw women do not care
they will sleep with any man
man raw is not different
man dear will not abuse Creation
with fiery straps of passion
he will love a woman
many names he will not desire
the dark will of adultery
will not strap herself on his weight
more for God he will walk each step
than for the marshy fields of scarlet women

if you chase her now, you cannot teach her anything
and all my work you will dishonor
love is not man and woman lost in passionate embrace
love is a step to God
..channeled; spirit Ram; 1986
