THE DESTITUTE'S WISH

I had an abundance of all,
shared my immense riches with all;
I felt extreme joy, I walked tall...
doubting my fall, doubting my fall!  


Stripped of pride, wealth and honor
I wear rags remembering glamor;
those dashing images of grandeur...
are now terror, are now terror!


Shivering as a destitute,
smelling hot food and salivate; 
I beg along roads with smoke...
I stay awake, I stay awake! 


I'm the one wailing and dying,
not having anyone caring;
come death, descend on my dwelling...
stop my weeping, stop my weeping!

    Thanks, Andrew for reminding me that there is someone who cares even yet. Ah, sweet death to self and pride and pity and change. Glorious thoughts of the Way the Truth and the Life. Trust me, you are still loved with an everlasting love.
