37. Why I love

I do not know

Why I love God.

I love God

Perhaps

Because He loves me.


I do not know

Why I love the world.

I love the world

Perhaps

Because the world loves me.

But

I do know why I love myself.

I love myself

Because

The ascending poor beggar in me

Loves me constantly

And

The descending rich beggar above me

Loves me unconditionally.
