al-Qasidah al-Burdah ~ On Restraining Lust and Carnal Desires

aa2

Divert the self’s desires and avoid empowering it, Whenever desire takes charge, it either destroys or defiles.

Shepherd over it as it grazes freely in the field of actions, But should it find the pasturage sweet, restrain its casual roaming.

How often it has found some deadly pleasure delightful, Not knowing that poison lies hidden in the cream!”
