Inner compassion
And outer tolerance
Can easily make a new world,  
A better world.

~

My life is in between  
My intolerance-mind  
And  
My tolerance-heart.

~

My Lord,  
I made my unconditional surrender  
To Your Will.  
Therefore, I am fully prepared  
To make my life  
An unconditional tolerance  
For humanity.  

~

From my heart I learn  
Tolerance-songs,  
And from my mind I learn  
Indulgence-stories.

~

Tolerance always 
Brings forth  
A bumper crop.

~

No substitute  
For the tolerance
Of the heart!  
No substitute  
For the satisfaction  
Of the soul!  

~

Alas, will I ever be able
To receive from God  
His world-tolerance-award?
