724. O Buddha!

O Buddha!
O Buddha!
Tell me,
Why
Were you so cruel
To Yashodhara, your beautiful wife?
What made you
Escape
From her sleeping net?

"I wanted
To tell the world
That I was totally
Unfulfilled
In my human life.
I escaped from my wife's
Love-Prison
Because
Her larger self, the world,
Needed
My immediate service."
