In the darkness of the night, I shine as the moon
In spring of hope, I blossom in every tree
In autumn of acceptance, I get blown away
This is the light of my understanding
This is the light that has made me free!
Faraway in an unknown land
My sentient consciousness still thrives
As the tiger lurking in the mangrove forest
As the deer by the river ready to flee
As the hidden hunter, seeking both their precious hides
My struggling sentience, lives and strives!
In the concrete jungle of a forgotten ghetto
I take the suffering form, of every human soul
The homeless cripple begging by the road
The corrupt official bending the rule
The penniless mother weeping over her starving child
The cold blooded man guiltless after murder
I am each; I am them all!
This is light of my understanding
This is the light that has made me free
Empathy takes every form; and compassion fills every soul
And when consciousness flows out of the shell of the ego
You too friend can break free!
