Awareness of the root


A sense of innate superiority
Because of being born into a high caste,
Would be there in one, poor though.

A sense of inferiority
Because of being born into a low caste,
Would be there in one, rich though.

A sense of authority
Because of being born as the eldest,
Would be there in one, weak though.

A sense of importance
Because of being born as beautiful,
Would be there in one, a maid though.

The root is persistent in one’s thought.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
