I am human



photo by Elena Kalis


I am the sea dragon
that guards the deep blue depths
from sorrow

I am the angel
that keeps your faith in check
for time is borrowed

I am temptation
that makes you believe
forever is tomorrow

Je suis le dragon de mer, l'ange, la tentation
qui maintient votre foi en échec
parce que le temps est emprunté, et toujours est un mythe

  3. Ninot Ma'am,
    Temptation makes and keeps the wheels moving. There cannot be anything as motivating as temptation for good or for bad. There's no finality, it's mobile! Brilliant take, Ma'am!!
