To Live Like A Human Tree
O’ God from all the shackles
Let my mind become free
Let me grow in all directions
Just like an old tree
Let me bear the fruitsf
Of knowledge in every season
To bless one and all, from
Every caste, creed and religion
Let my roots become stronger
To birds of love branches be the hosts
And just like dry dead leaves
Shed from my mind unwanted thoughts
Unwise men may try to betray
Or even conspire to destroy me
Give me courage and the wisdom
To live like a Human Tree..
O’ God from all the shackles…
