I am the Strong with your Strength


By Yengkhom Bihari#

O Infinite! I am the limit of your infinitude
You are my infinitude on the base of my finitude,
I am the strong with your strength.

I am the grains of time of your timelessness
On the bed of my grainy life you are my timeless life,
I am the timeless with your timelessness,
I am the strong with your strength.

You, stateless, are the mode of my life’s little manners
In the fixity and mannerlessness of yours
I am a journey yours endless,
I am the strong with your strength.

(Translated from Manipuri by Thoithoi O’Cottage)
