Poems about Immortality



I have drunk deep of God’s own liberty
From which an occult sovereignty derives;
Hidden in an earthly garment that survives,
I am the worldless being vast and free.
A moment stamped with that supremacy
Has rescued me from cosmic hooks and gives;
Abolishing death and time my nature lives
In the deep heart of immortality.

God’s contract signed with ignorance is torn;
Time has become the Eternal’s endless tear,
My soul’s wide self of living infinite Space
Outlines its body luminous and unborn
Behind the earth-robe; under the earth-mask grows clear
The mould of an imperishable face.

- Sri Aurobindo
