O my mind, let us go home
Why do you roam?
The earth, that foreign land
And wear its alien garb?
These senses, these elements
Are strangers; none is your own…
Why do you forget yourself falling in love with strangers?
O my mind, why do you?
I tried to find the Eternal in my thoughts,
But it is beyond the mind to comprehend.
My mind sees this plainly.
But alas, my heart will not be satisfied.
