If you make a life choice

based solely

on the happiness

it will bring

be also prepared

for the delusion

For to know

what joy is

you must also

have to meet sorrow

Being resolute

in your purpose

does not guarantee

everlasting peace

For not only

will you often rejoice

with total abandon

you will also suffer most

because of that which

is closest in mind

and dearest

to your heart
