Poems on Enthusiasm by Sri Chinmoy
My Lord, Why do I fail?
My Lord, why do I fail?
Why do I sadly fail?
“My child, break asunder your mind-cherished jail.”
Sleep no more, sleep no more,
Sleep no more, dream no more!
Your Lord Supreme is knocking at your heart-door.
My Lord, I need,
I need a rainbow-heart.
“My child, pray for a purity-life.
No night, no night, no darkness-night,
Just the beauty and fragrance of light.
Every action of God
Is a Creation-Dance.
Every action of ignorance
Is a destruction-lance.
Never, never shall I allow
My God-manifestation-promise to die.
My soul and I fly and fly very high
In the vastness of God-fulfilment-sky.
Strive for a fire-pure change, strive!
Your life and your heart are bound to thrive.
