532. Transformation

Birthless and deathless I was,
And then I was raised above
The throes of birth and the buffets of death.
This was my first transformation.

Across the river
Of life and death
I sang only one song: uncertainty.
This was my second transformation.

My third transformation will take place
When the animal in me
Surrenders to the divine in me
And Immortality embraces the divine in me.
