Jai Gurudev!

Let me be myself a bit

Let me melt myself a bit
Let me relieve myself a bit
Let me unleash myself a bit
Let me be myself a bit...

My heart was loaded, in fact overloaded
with rocks of regrets and also guilts
of my past's mistakes and misdeeds,
with this useless load how could it proceed,
But O Guruji! it's by your grace so full
I've removed that cart, and i'm no longer a bull;
I've melted myself a bit
I've relieved myself a bit
I've unleashed myself a bit
I've become myself a bit...

My mind had become a pile of garbage
a putrid corner of filthy thoughts accumulated with age,
rare good thoughts were rendered shrouded
in the dump of dirty ones that always followed,
But you must have blossomed in that mud for sure
it's no stench since the day it became yours;
I've cleaned myself a bit
I've relieved myself a bit
I've unleashed myself a bit
I've become myself a bit...

My character constituted all dubiousness
furbished with the jewels of lies, lust and arrogance,
sans any compassion, rather replete with enviousness
an identity with 'the ego' was my characteristic helplessness,
but the fire of Your grace has burnt that falseness
and the light is showing the heavenly belongingness,
I've burnt my falseness a bit
I've relieved myself a bit
I've unleashed myself a bit
I've become myself a bit..
