Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Normal Living
 

I fear happiness, I fear peace too
Lest I ignore strife and struggle,
The memories of past lived in gaiety
Won’t they burden the heart in woe?

I fear wealth, I fear power too
Lest I neglect the poor and the weak,
The memories of past lavish living
Won’t they trouble the mind in adversity?

I fear vanity, I fear impertinence too
Lest they corrupt my good conscience,
The memories of past treacherous living
Won’t they torment the soul in ignominy?

Yeah, I seek happiness but some sorrows too
Some pleasures of life but some pains too,
The memories of past normal living
Won’t they make one normal in troubles too?
