978. My need is my only limit

At last I have come to realise
That my need
Is my only limit.
Otherwise, by this time
I could easily have become
Another God.

“My child, you are a fool.
You are already
Another God.”

If I am another God,
How is it that there is
Such a difference
Between You and me?

“The difference exists
Because
Unlike Me,
You have been all along
Neglecting all your duties
And
Avoiding all your responsibilities.”
