Treasure Island

Kathup Tsering

(1979 / Northern estern Tibet)

Conversations of Self with Self

Self converses with Self
Both dwell deep within
Behold the power each yield

Oh, Self of mine
Come to me now
In my hour of need

Guide me beyond self
Lead me through the pain
Illuminate the Divine Path

My heart is heavy
With human desire
As I blindly long for freedom

I must see the Higher Purpose
As self endures this life of wanting
I seek from You' Reality's Truth

Raise me to wisdom on the Vine of Peace
That I may be a Voice of Light
To lead others through the Darkness

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
