The Unending Ordeal

Goddess! I prevailed on you to test
If I can avoid temptation–
Not a single net could trap me, see
But to my ordeal you don’t put an end!

Even if my heart turns into ashes
And my mind is pulled by furious longings
My conviction will never fail!

Even if the cloud of sorrows bursts
And I find myself drowning—
A leaf I will not grab!

But if you aren’t convinced
I would brace myself for harder tests
Ask  not for respite!
