511. Alas, how can I?

I want to be happy.

But alas, how can I,

When others are surpassing me?


I want to be happy.

But alas, how can I,

When others are governing me?


I want to be happy.

But alas, how can I,

Since I have not pleased my Inner Pilot,

Not even once?


I want to be happy.

But alas, how can I,

Since I know I can never be

What I want to be?
