O jagadIsha kharArE tyAgarAju nIvADani pErE

RAma! How long can I wait for your arrival hoping against hope? I have not only entrusted my mind to you but regard this body of mine as yours. In this world, whatever I may be indulging in, my mind is ever oriented towards you. Like others I am playing the game of puppetry in this world, but you are in my heart. RAmayya! What do you gain by exposing my innermost thoughts to the sneering men who take delight at others' plight, and deride those who are full of guile? What do you lose by obliging me? Do not falsely accuse me to justify your disregard. Have you stayed put among old devotees of repute? Will you lose your wealth by coming to me? I go on weeping, with none to whom to pour out my heart. I have nowhere else to go but to you. Your mercy is infallible. Is there anyone who is such a simpleton as to be ignorant of the effect of Kali? Probably all this is the effect of my abusing you. No wonder I am reaping the fruit. But then, is not devotion to you powerful enough to prevail over one's past sins? Those who live by selling flowers will not stoop to sell firewood. If out of despair I abandon my devotion and stoop to some inferior mode of living, is it not a blot on you? Lord of the world! O Warrior who destroyed Khara! Shun this obstinacy and demonstrate to the world thatI am yours, not merely in name but in reality, too!
