42. The smile of destruction-seaConsciously 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.
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 6, Agni Press, 1974
