­"Springing from the Earth"

[From The Human Revolution, by Daisaku Ikeda]


Traveler,

From whence do you come?

And where do you go?



The moon has set,

But the sun has not yet risen.

In the chaos of darkness before the dawn

Seeking the light,

I advance

To dispel the dark clouds from my mind

To find a great tree unbowed by the tempest

I emerge from the Earth.
