Don'T Give Me Success! ! - Poem by Niharica Bhardwaj

O Lord! don't give me success,
If it takes away my freedom;
Don't give me success,
If it pulls me in the ditch of pride;

O Lord! don't give me success,
If it makes me alone;
If it takes away my friends,
If it makes me deaf to hear the forest;

O Lord! don't give me such a success,
If it takes me away from thy beauty;
Don't give me success, O Lord!
If it takes me away from You!

    This is like Kunti's prayer to Lord Krishna, when He wanted to take leave of her to go back to Dwaraka at the end of Mahabharat. Kunti prayed 'Oh Lord, let us have troubles as much as possible, then only we will remember you always.' (Report) Reply
