639. An outstanding athlete

You are indeed

An outstanding athlete.

You ran all the way

From your home to God’s Palace

In spite of the fact

That the distance defies

All human calculations.


Of course, you had

God’s Compassion-Heart

To protect your head

From ignorance-rain

And

God’s Protection-Arms

To protect your feet

From ignorance-heat.


Ah, now you even have the capacity

To run every day to God’s Palace

From your home, the earth,

And back again.

You are indeed

An outstanding athlete.
