They tell me:
“Let your deeds prove.”

I tell them that my deeds
Have already proved
That I cannot exist without God
Even for a fleeting second.

I tell them that my deeds
Have already proved
That the world does not need
My wise advice.

I tell them that my deeds
Have already proved
That God’s Compassion-Sun
Depends not
On my aspiration-candle.
