April 28 was the third anniversary of Sri Chinmoy’s completion of The Goal Is Won, a book of 360 poems written in 24 hours. In honour of that achievement, a few poems from the book are reprinted here.
I was the frustration-despair-bridge
My vital’s first dark hour
My body’s last deep sleep.
I am the rapture-treasure-bridge
My heart’s birthless hour
My soul’s deathless life.
