A Question, Some Questions
The self alone?
Is to be won
Of his own destiny?
Who dares claim
He is never
Worth the price?
How many illusions
Have we in this world?
How many desires?
How many false desires?
How many times
Must one be led
To the only jewels
This world offers -
Must one hold
Never are things
What they seem
To be -
One fact is real -
All things exist in GOD
This fact alone
Should be encouraging
And lead one
To the Sound that saves
