UNDERSTANDING "PURIFICATION" IN ENGLISH
Well-done O merciless, O merciless well-done.
In this manner burn my heart in intense passion.
If thee doesn't burn my incense,
then I wouldn't emanate essence,
If my lamp is not lit,
then I would not emit light.
When my mind remains subconscious,
Then your rude awakening comes as a blessed touch.
The darkness of ignorance shames me
as I fail to realize thee.
Strike me with your lightning while thee
erase darkness from me.
