Recognition

Who am I
If you are the Lord of Lords in disguise
Among the jester-loving fools?
I can only try
to comprehend your self-sufficient rules.

My shallow heart longs to bring you jewels,
But I can’t comprehend your self-sufficient rules
If you are the Lord of Lords in disguise.
This is m selfless-self who can not die,
And I wonder, who am I?
