The Moth and the Lamp, Cesar Santos 

The light of learning

has cast its spell on me.

Pride has been pruned away,

Ego has been shed off,

Jealousy and vanity charred.

Green is the prosperity of mind.

My spirits feel free and light,

sprouted the wings of enlightenment,

Levitating above the ground realities.

I have forsaken the velvet slipper

of wealth and accumulation. 

Opened the windows of mind.

My soul is cleansed

I have attained Nirvana.
