by Thich Nhat Hanh
O you who are going in circles,
What are you doing it for?
"I cannot be without going,
because I don't know where to go.
That's why I go in circles."
O You who are going in circles,
"But if I stop going,
I will stop being."
O my friend who is going in circles,
you are not one with
this crazy business of going in circles.
You may enjoy going,
but not going in circles.
"Where can I go?"
Go where you find your beloved,
where you can find yourself.
