Am I selfish as a hungry dog
or am I entitled to have positive self-regard?
If I’m not for myself,
then who will be for me?
But when I’m only for myself,
then what am I?
Can one of us enlighten the rest of the world?
A single candle can light
a thousand more without
diminishing itself.
Can I always choose the best friends?
That which is hateful to you,
do not do to others.
My dreams tell the truth I need to know:
If you have a dream that
you haven’t understood,
it’s like receiving a letter
that you haven’t opened.
As a matter of the fine art of lovemaking:
You have failed in your duty
if you satisfy yourself before
orchestrating inner vibrations
for your elegant loving wife.
