Illusion

Like a wild dog
In a palace of mirrors
Barks himself to death,
Like a lion dives into the well
When it sees its own reflection,
Or an elephant breaks its neck
Against shining rocks,
The greedy monkey
Grabs a trap and then has
To dance to the master’s tune.
And you, slave of Illusion,
Who has captured you!

 

– Kabir
