In the depths of my solitude,
I see only two companions:
Loneliness and melancholy-
            Leading my life.

On the tightrope of my cloistered existence,
I felt about four pangs of grief:
Emotional, Spiritual, Physical and Psychological-
            Disturbing my peace.

On the apex of my bruised feelings,
Am faced with triple agents of man-hatred:
Envy, Jealousy and Ignorance-
            Tearing me apart.

On the peak of my sorrows,
I experienced two pangs of hurt:
Memories of disappointments and reminiscence of grief-
            bruising my soul.

Ever since you came into my life,
I started feeling two unexplained warmth:
Compassion and caring disposition-
            soothing my nerves.

Now that I've found a companion,
Am yet faced with two obstacles:
Memories of my past and thoughts of my future-
            My new found peace.

But since I've found solace in the bosom of God,
I saw my most hated and dreaded enemies:
My past mistakes and sins I've committed-
            And leaving my life.
