Submission and Content!

Will sea permit the fish to walk outside?

Or may earth’s beasts plunge deep within the sea?

Water’s source for fish, and land for beasts-

All your scheming, planning, can’t undo this!

The lock is firm, unlocked by God alone-

so reach for this; submission and content.

Were every atom turned into a key,

no opening would come except through God.

Once you forget about your planning,

you’ll find your old guide brings your fortune fresh.

Once you’re forgotten to yourself, they’ll mention you.

Once you’ve become a slave, they’ll set you free.
