No rack can torture me, My soul’s at liberty Behind this mortal bone There knits a bolder one You cannot prick with saw, Nor rend with scymitar. Two bodies therefore be; Bind one, and one will flee. The eagle of his nest No easier divest And gain the sky, Than mayest thou, Except thyself may […]

A new freedom

A new freedom Everybody wants to fly as a bird, Nobody wants to remain in chains, Because everyone has a new freedom to live merrily, But some cruel take our freedom away And make us their slave. Freedom is a god gifted gift Which nobody can destroy from this earth. Freedom is not made for […]

The Saint

There is no suffering for the one who has completed the journey, who is freed from sorrow, who has freed oneself on all sides, who has thrown off all chains. The thoughtful exert themselves; they do not delight in a home; like swans who have left their lake, they leave their house and home. Those […]
