The first was Lust. She was beautiful and alluring, more beautiful than any supermodel. She beckoned for me.
The path beyond her was barren. The ground was dark and dusty. Skeletons and carcasses littered all around her.
The second was Continence. She too was beautiful, but homely. She called for me, begging me to ignore her rival.
The path beyond her was lush and fertile. Children were running around, playing. The animals were in peace, predator and prey.
I knew not which path to take.
