978. My need is my only limit

At last I have come to realise

That my need

Is my only limit.

Otherwise, by this time

I could easily have become

Another God.

“My child, you are a fool.

You are already

Another God.”

If I am another God,

How is it that there is

Such a difference

Between You and me?

“The difference exists


Unlike Me,

You have been all along

Neglecting all your duties


Avoiding all your responsibilities.”
