This World is Messed Up in Craving!

The Buddha once told a deity:
This world is suffering from Death,
Troubled by ageing, decay and sickness,
Wounded by the Dart of constant Craving!
Always is it burning with Desire and Lust...
This world is addicted to Delight and Pleasure,
Since dragged around by this urge and longing,
Craving must be cut, to break free from bondage
and reach the only absolute freedom: Nibbāna...

Comments:
How can there be any freedom if there still is craving, longing and
clinging to something... Craving is Mental Slavery!
Craving is a Prison of Dominating Urge...
