O My Lord Supreme

O my Lord Supreme,

Grant me inner beauty

Instead of doubt,

Grant me outer beauty

Instead of power,

Grant me oneness-satisfaction,

Both here on earth and there in Heaven,

Instead of victory-tower.

The following twenty poems were written on 31 October 1979 on the trip from Madras to Bombay.
