853. Do not convert and do not be converted

Do not convert.
Let him go in his own way.

Do not be converted.
You must go in your own way.

Do not convert.
His resistance-night
Will devour your inner joy.

Do not be converted.
Your resistance-night
Will devour his inner joy.

God will ask His Freedom
To love you.

God will ask your freedom
To feed Him.

Do not convert,
Do not be converted.
