I?

 
I?
 
Can anyone tell me
Who I’m supposed to be
Can anyone hear
This silent prayer
 
Can you clear my mind
Of what I have to leave behind
I don’t want to keep
What won’t remain after
 
My last sleep
 
The more I think of it
I just can’t stop it
It grows on me
Like an empty sea
 
And yes it grew
And before I knew
It stripped me – I couldn’t help –
It stripped me of myself.

    “One who is unattached to the fruits of his work and who works as he is obligated is in the renounced order of life, and he is the true mystic, not he who lights no fire and performs no work.”
