100. Now I am happy

I was not happy,
Although my fame reached
Unprecedented heights.

I was not happy,
Although the world kissed
The dust of my feet.

I was not happy,
Although God offered me
His Transcendental Pride.

But now I am happy,
Because
The Blossoms of my service-tree
Have all been devoured
By man’s ignorance-night and
God’s Blessing-Light.
