174. The hero marches alongHe who has loved this world
Has only got excruciating pangs.
The world has thrown on him
All ugliness, filth, dirt and impurity.
Yet the hero marches along,
Carrying the burden of the entire world.
At the end of his teeming struggles
He will go and stand at the Feet
Of his Lord Supreme.
Sri Chinmoy, The caged bird and the uncaged bird, Agni Press, 1998
