Where Does One Begin With You? - Poem by Sant Tukaram

Where does one begin with you?
O Lord, you have no opening line
It's so hard to get you started.

Everything I tried went wrong.
You've used up all my faculties.

What I just said vanished in the sky
And I've fallen on the ground again.

Says Tuka my mind is stunned:
I can't find a word to say.
