THE FLAME IN THE LOTUS

XXXVII.
It´s no use pretending, priest,
There are days when the Light is dim and the Life seems
So far away. When falling down
Is the action of daily living and regrets and bitterness
The dominant emotions.
Today may not be one of them, but get ready-
This Saha world has its share of problems,
And they will come back. Rest assured.
There is so little to rely upon, but then again,
It was in this life and in this world that I encountered
The Dharma. It is good, but
The Way is not easy.
