Life blessed me not with a Lion's Mane,
And it blesses me not with the strength of Sampson's Fame.
Instead, Life blessed with the scalp of a saint,
A Tonsured Soul to contemplate.
It leads me in
This humbling crown....
Like Shakyamuni Buddha,
I too, want to hide in a cave
And envision a Reality
That will transcend it all.
