Read

In the name of the Almighty

The One, the Only

Who was not born

Nor gave birth

Who placed my soul

On this earth

Read

To give names

Describe the unknown

Seek understanding

Not in words

No, that is mere translation

Comprehend

By emotion

Read

For thou shalt feel

The power of existence

And the lack over it

Submission

As only the soul can free

Itself from the body

Read

And the mind shall know

All it knows not

The essence of knowledge

Surrender

Strive no longer for the sake of knowing

As thou shall never

Read

Not to find the answer

Seek questions instead

Avoid confirmation

Invite critique

As wisdom can’t grow

On smooth surface

Read

And guard thy mind from ignorance

Protect thyself from arrogance

No, we possess not even the sense of what we think we know

Nor see

Read

For the sake of silence

And simultaneous revolution

Of the self

Towards the self

To be.
