First Line: I think the scourge was made for men
Last Line: We forfeit, he attains the goal.
Subject(s): Mortality


I think the scourge was made for men
That have the power to rise again.

Because when scourged such beasts as I
Have no alternative. We die.

At death, we lose, man gains a soul.
We forfeit, he attains the goal.
