Give up expectations and
the mind becomes free.
What is difference between right
and wrong?
What is difference between
light and dark?
Other people hate what
others hate. This is
Other people dance and
sing wildly from rooftops.
But I am stoic as a newborn
without her smile, homeless.
Other people have surplus
and can spare. I possess
little and strive for nothing.
I am contend with what comes
to me. As the village idiot
I accept this as normal.
Other people are intelligent,
I am empty-minded.
Other people are ingenious,
I am dimwitted.
Other people have a purpose
and direction.
Like a piece of wood upon an great sea, I go where the
waves take me. I am not like most others.
I drink the milk of the great Mother.
