9. Yesterday, today, tomorrowO greedy yesterday,
Do not follow me, please.
It is not nice to follow someone
Without his permission.
O speedy today,
Do not be a deer, please.
Please be a tortoise.
Have you forgotten the unforgettable maxim:
"Slow and steady wins the race"?
O my tardy tomorrow,
How long do you want me to wait for you?
"Time and tide wait for no man".
Hasten your arrival, please,
If your compassion-breath at all
cares for my life.
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 13, Agni Press, 1974
