A Poem written by Torkom Saraydarian.
(The actual date of writing is not known)

Sometimes, my Lord,
when I do something good,
creative, and noble,
I hear a whisper
in my ear.
It says,

“Heaven will reward you.”

My Lord,
I try always to ignore
such a whisper,
and I want to reject
any reward
that the heavens may offer
to me.
