538. We allow our minds

You allow your mind
To wander on unwanted things.

He allows his mind
To wander on wanted pleasures.

I allow my mind
To wander on futile thoughts.

Together we shall sing
The song of temptation.

Together we shall dance
The dance of frustration.

Together we shall die
The death of destruction.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 11, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
