Rabindranath Tagore

Dungeon

He whom I enclose with my name is weeping in this dungeon. I am ever busy building this wall all around; And as this wall goes up into the sky day by day I lose sight of my true being in its dark shadow. I take pride in this great wall, and I plaster it with dust and sand lest a least hole should be left in this name; and for all the care I take I lose sight of my true being.
