Brutality, oh brutality
That is ambition.
When compounded with such irritable
Convulsions of the heart,
Ambition is almost unbearable.

When one's heart and one's soul are both in turmoil,
One needs a good deal of sleep.
Satisfy one and the other can be
Duped, if only for a little while.

The soul must live on,
Even is this heart fails.
