Prof.R.K. <wbr>SINGH,from <wbr>India(印度)

[India] R.K. SINGH
                      
 THE VALLEY OF SELF

I do’t know which psalm to sing
or which church to go to feel
the flames within for a while

sit or lie still with
faith weather the restlessness
brewing breath by breath.

I don’t know the god
or goddess or the mantra
to chant when fear overtakes
my being and makes me suffer

plateaus of nightmares
paralysing spirit to live
and be the promised fulfillment.

I see not savior come
to rescue me when mired
to seek freedom from my self:

my ordeals are mine alone
in the valley of self
I must learn to clear the clouds
soaring high or low.



                         
HELPLESSNESS

I have no magical power
to change my restlessness
into glory radiating
peace or purpose in living.

They give me no room to better
men or myself but condemn
as one hanged for nothing:
poets are no living lessons.

I stand aside ruminating
what I couldn’t do or be
or await miracles through
circles and zigzags of the mind.

Even corrupt faith and curse
destiny for the maze
of my own making and yet say
I know the spirit’s upward fire.
