Hungry

Hunger is only weakness
Strength is only pain
It is those who are strong who must keep going
And walk out through the rain.

Comfort is only fictitious
Utopia is vain
To be happy is to submit to craziness
And see nothing but the gain.

Nirvana is pretentious
Enlightenment's been slain
The enigma of happy life
Was lost by the comfort strain.

The comfort strain is only those
Who'll see nothing for themselves
Trusting only in the views of others
Rather than trusting themselves.


Here I lay so hungry
To see life exit from this bane
But hunger is only weakness,
And strength is just the same.
