Ataraxia

unless One is
willing to commit
to extreme acts
as a means by
which to preserve
what is right,
or good for
One’s prosperity,
then the pursuance
of sanctity, the desire
for a better quality
of living
the struggle
is itself
an incurable
poison

“And if thy right
hand offend thee,
cut it off,
and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable
for thee that one
of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body
should be cast
into hell.”
(Matthew 5:30)
