I died from minerality and became vegetable;

And from vegetativeness I died and became animal.

I died from animality and became man.

 

Then why fear disappearance through death?

 

Next time I shall die

 

Bringing forth wings and feathers like angels;

 

After that, soaring higher than angels –

 

What you cannot imagine,

 

I shall be that.
