As I encounter truth immersed in light,
I feel a force transcending
the limitations in my sight.
An open scroll is now extending
its width in front of eyes which see the truth
as power that cannot become aloof.
The words I see upon a scroll are clear
as selfless love which I endear.
I read about the life of one who spoke
of how the higher truths exist
in teachings that mortals cannot revoke.
The deeds I read about this man consist
of works exceeding weakness in my soul
as I encounter truth which makes me whole.
