I found while reading back over a old notebook that I had copied down this poem:-
Come, come, whoever you are
Wander, idolater, worshiper of fire
Come even though you have broken your vows a thousand times
Come and yet come again
Our is not a caravan of despair
It reminds of practicing meditation and returning again and again to the practice of watching the breath and finding the silence in the mind, and then being distracted by thoughts, realising this fact and going back again to the practice.
