Do not forget
That God does not cherish
Your inferiority feelings,
Just as He does not cherish
The superiority feelings of others.

Deep inside yourself?

Even if you become the target
Of wild criticism,
Your inner happiness
Will eventually prove to you
That God has always
Been pleased with you.

Never worry about things
That you are unable to change.
Change your own way
Of looking at truth.
Look from a higher
And more encompassing
Life-tree branch.

You must fearlessly face
All the problems
That are attacking you.
