Short Poem on Desire


by Sri Chinmoy

To my greatest joy,
My desire-dreams
Are fading away fast,
Very fast.


If we walk along the road of desire-night,
fulfillment will always remain a far cry.


Because of your desire-life,
God comes and goes in your heart.
He will take up permanent residence
Inside your heart
Only when you become
Your life’s climbing aspiration-cry.
