321. Transformation

“Everyone thinks of
Changing the world, but no one thinks of
Changing himself.


Tolstoy

I tried to change myself;
I badly failed.

I tried to change the world;
To my wide surprise,
The world had achieved
Its perfection-light long before
I made my surrendered attempt.

I failed to change my life
Because
I mixed too much
With my Master, Ego,
With my Disciple, Doubt.
