Food, water, air, rest, and shelter We need this at the core centre These are the most basic human needs And aren't dependent on your deeds But, apart from what the body pleads There are psycho-socio-eco needs Followed by mindset and self actualization These are things that lead to motivation If we analyze the basics, You'll notice this A man will die without water or food And we need oxygen irrespective of aptitude Hypothermia and hyperthermia, the elements and weather Frost bites and heat strokes can kill us if unprotected without shelter Exhaustion and lack of sleep can actually lead to death If you don't shut those peepers, you'll probably begin to hallucinate But what about sex? Let's look at the specs Turns out, no one ever died due to lack of it! And sure, even I'll admit Sex is a strong desire, like an urge If you don't have it regularly or ever, you won't drown and submerge Sure, regular sex will keep the mind healthy and happy Balance out the hormones and make you feel a bit stress-free And although it's not a basic human need For many, its gratification is their only creed That being said, the power of the flesh Is quite a complicated, tangled mesh Many heroes have been destroyed Do you recall the battle of Troy? The history of mankind is plagued with such stories Over religion and flesh, more than territory I was born and raised Catholic, that's true I don't agree with a tenet, among other few I feel the clergy and religious personnel shoul be permitted a spouse That's just my opinion; it'll reduce temptation in the house Either way, if you choose priestly robes You better not be disrespecting those There's always a choice, you can still walk out If it's not for you, or if you're having doubts Just like married people should'nt cheat; it's adultery Both these cases are instances of treachery Sex is a drive; it's not a need, but an urge All of your time or thoughts on it, do not splurge!
