I have Gained more by Putting my Head in Stars

Where are you –

The embryo of everything,

Preserver and destroyer –

The pulsating energy of the universe?


I have wanted to talk with you for a long time,

But often you are unapproachable,

When you speak you talk in parables,

Why do you play games with your creations?


When you created the miracle of human life,

Why did you leave loose ends?

You gave man the faculty to reason,

But not the keys to happiness.


But now I don’t mind unhappiness,

I have gained more by putting my head in stars,

Than mastering the ways of the world,

In abnegation and not in possession.
