533. He will wake up

He talks.
He is a man of empty talk.

He lives.
He lives a purposeless life.

He yields.
He constantly yields to cowardice.

He is.
He is hopelessly faint-hearted.

Yet one day
He will wake up.
He will wake up
And listen to the clarion call
Of his Inner Pilot.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 11, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
