For Fewer Humiliations


Growing in position,
Acquiring power,
And getting wealth and comforts
Are the fodder for ego.
I don’t want my ego
To fatten and stiffen.
Rather be it tender
And supple so that
I can pursue my life
With fewer humiliations.

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
