G. bergmann - Sublime g

I was dead, then alive
Weeping, then laughing
The power of love, came into me
And I became fierce like a lion
He said "You're not mad enough
You don't belong in this house"
I went wild and had to be tied up
He said "Still not wild enough to stay with us!"
I broke into another layer into joyfullness
He said "It's not enough"
I died
He said "You clever little man
Full of fantasy and doubting"
I plucked my feathers and became a fool
He said "Now you're the candle for this assembly"
But I'm no candle. Look! I'm scattered smoke
He said "You're the sheikh, you're the guide"
But I'm not a teacher. I have no power
He said "You already have wings. I cannot give you wings"
But I wanted his wings
I felt like some flightless chicken
Then new events said to me
"A sublime generosity is coming towards you"
An old man said "Stay with me"
I said "I will"
I went wild and had to be tied up
He said "Still not wild enough to stay with us!"
I broke into another layer into joyfullness
He said "It's not enough"
