Poems – Frustration

My mind’s frustration weighs
Heavier than failure.
Alas, my heart and I
Know not how to endure.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

A yawning gulf between
My vision-tree and my reality-plant.

A yawning gulf between
The place I love to live and the place I live.
I love to live under the vault of heaven.
Alas, my existence lives
In the valley of the shadow of death.
Peace has escaped my remembrance;
Delight, too.

But I know a swing of the pendulum
Will change my face and fate.
My surrender supreme
Shall marry my dream-boat
With my reality-shore.

- Sri Chinmoy
