Life of wisdom

Come again with slate wiped clean,
Pure of mind and thought serene.
Early years in erudition spent,
Innocent love by mind is bent.

Scholared mind it's boundaries declare,
Karmic cost poor soul despair.
Wisdom, not love and peace instilled,
But lust, anger, greed and envy spilled.

Under cloak of religious love,
War has claimed the pure white dove.
Praying hands of collared priest,
Hide the Reapers mortal feast.

Alas, alas, innocence is lost,
Senseless mortal will rue the cost.
Emotions none as strong as hate,
Even timeless love negate.

Untold pain and suffering,
To all life mortal man will bring.
From life to life and age to age,
Redemption only through the sage.
