If I Have Sense Of Mine


IfI may be damned.

You were neither with me
Nor will you remain in future with me
You are always separating from me.

If I have sense of mine
I may be damned.

If I keep my desire with me
It leads me to darkness.

Let me think my consequences
Let me practice what is good for me
Let me stay free with all goodness of You.

If I keep my desire with me
it leads me to darkness.

    I would be damned too
    if I stay with myself! !
    That is true as you all can see it.
    Thanks, Gajanan
    Through all thick and thin
    You are one dear true friend
    I don't have to say
    But you already know
    The Lord God has blessed you
    Most generously!
    For that, we give thanks. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
