851. The Buddha’s problems

Lord Buddha,
Your first problem was suffering.
Your second problem was desire.
Your third problem was ignorance.
Your fourth problem was the absence of inner light.
All your problems
You solved
Eternally for yourself.
And now the Heart that
You left behind on earth
Is trying and crying,
Crying and trying
To solve the same
Giant problems.
As you succeeded,
So also your Heart
Will succeed,
Without fail.
