My helpless cry.

My human pride.
My Lord in silence gives
My heart a ride.

My Heart-to-Heart Talk with My Lord

My heart-to-heart
Talk with my Lord Supreme
Cancels my darkness-dream.

Takes me to eyeless goals;
Ere me death-dart.

To mirror God.

No terror-rod.

Of black disgrace.

And now a fruitless life.
