I am my haven's kingI cry
Because I know not when to try.
Because I see temptation's spear.
Because I am lost within, without.
Because I've closed my beauty's gate.
Because I breathe below, above.
Because my Goal no more a chance.
Because I am my haven's King.
Sri Chinmoy, God’s Glance and God’s Grace, Agni Press, 2006
