390. I followed the path

I followed the path

Of self-assertion.

The world around despised me.


I followed the path

Of self-examination.

The world within admired

My bold attempt.


I followed the path

Of self-dedication.

The world within

And the world without

Had nothing for me

But lofty admiration.
