343. Because


   Because
I am unsuccessful,
  My desire suffers.

   Because
I am unsuccessful,
  My aspiration suffers.

   Because
I am unsuccessful,
  My life suffers.

   Because
I am unsuccessful,
  My goal suffers.

Alas, there is someone
Who constantly suffers for me.
  He is my God,
  He is my Lord,
  He is my All.
He suffers for me
Not because I am unsuccessful,
  But because
I have deliberately kept myself
Out of employment.
