I am a poet by heart,
A rationalist by mind,
An awakened by spirit,
A dreamer by intuition.

I roar like a lion whole day,
Cry like a lover whole night,
I am a rebel of a day,
A devotee of a night.

I am too wise to be deluded,
Too innocent to be a charlatan,
Too young to die soon,
Too old to live long.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
