The way to hell

The way to hell is paved with good intentions,
because one is too weak to follow stricter rules;
far easier to give in old pretensions,
which shows us as pathetic hopeless fools.

So let us then admit our weakness boldly
and simply try to limit the excess.
Let’s bear the neighbour’s open contempt coldly
because what others think really concerns us less.
