Ram, in his perspective: I was born a human; Of the average kind, a specimen; Childhood aspirations were aplenty, To become a yeoman, a swordsman, a bowman; And I dreaded perchance becoming A conman, a doorman or a barman; Youth had its own delusions and dreamt Of being an airman, a seaman or a showman; A few talents raised visions Of leading a life as a craftsman; Middle-age found me slotted in a niche And I rose up the ladder to be a helmsman; But was otherwise essentially a layman; At times, to frighten children, a bogeyman; . . . Then there was a call . . . And I realized that I was only a point of consciousness and no man; This insight made me a new man; I glimpsed a realm that was beyond God and Mammon; Now, some call me a madman, While others believe I am a shaman; Being neither, I am just me, a man.
