43. A different friend

Forgive me, my Lord Supreme,
Forgive me!
I have made friends
With tenebrous ignorance-night
Consciously and deliberately.
Now I want to change my friend.
I want to accept wisdom-light
As my new friend
Immediately and permanently.
Will You not give me another chance, my Lord,
Will You not?
Sri Chinmoy, Khama karo, Agni Press, 1987
