42. The smile of destruction-sea

Consciously I returned
To the confines of human blood
Only to be ridiculed and belittled.

Unconsciously I returned
To God’s Freedom-height
Only to be enthroned and crowned.

Soulfully hard I tried
To feed earth’s hungry abyss.
Alas, I was assailed by world-suspicion-god
And thrown into the smile of destruction-sea.
