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.
