My Lord Supreme,
What do You do
When I demand something from You
And expect something from You
And really need something from You?

“My child,
When you demand, I immediately fall asleep
And start snoring.

“When you expect, I quickly wake up
And start singing.

“When you need, I sprint toward you
Like your Sudhahota Carl Lewis,
The world’s fastest sprinter,
And smilingly reach you
And affectionately give you what you need.”
Sri Chinmoy, My Lord Supreme, I am falling asleep, Perfection-Glory, Augsburg, Germany, 1992
