The Secret to Life*

The secret to life is
     to die,
But before your last breath,
     before your heart's last beat.

And the secret to such death is
     to live, as long as possible,
Humbly submitting to God's will,
     humbly letting the ways of self go.

No greater joy can be known than
     to let break and let perish the
Habits beating in the heart and the
     Mills turning circles in the mind.

*the daily denying of one's will and
ways, and submitting to God's
