42. A great competitionGod and I
Entered into a great competition.
He pitted His Love
Against my teeming doubts.
Alas, He won.
I pitted my ingratitude
Against His flowing Compassion.
Alas, this time too, He won.
God, since twice I have lost to You,
I shall muster no more
To challenge Your superiority.
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 4, Agni Press, 1974
