928. The sad story

When our eyeless body

Is in the foreground,

Our clever vital

Recedes into the background.


When our aggressive vital

Is in the foreground,

Our uncertain mind

Recedes into the background.


When our unlit mind

Is in the foreground,

Our insecure heart

Recedes into the background.

And there, there alone,

The sad story ends.
