Parable of the Pensioner and the Lotto

The Kingdom of Sorrows is like a pensioner who had a few spare dollars one week so decided to bet it on the lotto. He played his grandchildren's birthdays but didn't win anything. The next week he thought to himself, knowing my luck my numbers will come up this week when I don't have a ticket. So he walked to the shops instead of catching the bus and used the money he saved to by a ticket. Again he did not win. As soon as I stop buying tickets these numbers are bound to come up, he thought, I had better keep buying them so that doesn't happen, because I would be mad if my numbers came up and I did not have a ticket. So every week he would skip a meal or not use the bus or go without something so he had the money to buy his lotto ticket. His numbers never came up.

Parable of the Car on the Hill

The Kingdom of Sorrow is like a man who tried to drive his car up a hill but ran out of fuel. No matter how much he stomped on the accelerator or rocked in his seat the car eventually ground to a halt. Before the car could roll backwards he jumped out and tried to push the car up hill but the weight was too much and slowly the car started to roll backwards. The man refused to get out of the way and just kept pushing and pushing not noticing that he was moving backwards until he tripped on a pothole and fell under the car which then rolled down the hill hitting others trying to get up the hill.

Undisclosed Desires



I know you've suffered,
But I don't want you to hide,
It's cold and loveless,
I won't let you be denied

Soothing,
I'll make you feel pure,
Trust me,
You can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty's not just a mask,
I want to exorcise the demons from your past,
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

You trick your lovers,
That you're wicked and divine,
You may be a sinner,
But your innocence is mine

Please me,
Show me how it's done,
Tease me,
You are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart,
I want to recognize your beauty's not just a mask,
I want to exorcise the demons from your past,
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Please me,
Show me how it's done,
Trust me,
You are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart,
I want to recognize your beauty's not just a mask,
I want to exorcise the demons from your past,
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart
