Ego's peril

(1970)  Tumi esechile mor manovane

You had arrived in the garden of my psyche;
I was waiting apathetically.
At my face You had peered;
Who knows what I was thinking!

In between You and me, the impasse,
It was not any block hard-and-fast.
Yet, I was not able to come near;
From afar I've gone on in a pique.

Tranquil was Your countenance;
My two eyes were tear-drenched.
But I could not wipe my eyes;
With Your heart I could not unite.

  1. Due to wounded pride, self-conceit, great opportunities are missed. Vanity is senseless when everything is His.
