What is the most resilient parasite?

Once an idea has taken hold of the brain,
it’s almost impossible to eradicate.
An idea that is fully formed, fully understood, that sticks.

or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone?
Deliverance is not for me in renunciation,
I feel the embrace of freedom in a thousand bonds of delight.
