Power in Purity (Poem) -

I loved life but I feared impurity

And impurity was interwoven in life

Like pebbles in a clean rock

And so I feared life and loved purity

I separated the two and then life became pure

And rendered lovable

When in youth

Such a thing can be taken as backwardness

But when age comes

Such a thing is exposed as

The strength around which people gather

I identified by the things I was not

Status was increased by experience

Power was gained by having done

Height was reached by having said it

My resistance caused my rockiness

And I became like a rock

Trying to mold myself after my Rock

Who is pure and without pebbles
