When the train arrives at the station,
step calmly onto the good earth,
walking bravely towards
whatever awaits you at platform’s end.
Lift up your eyes
and lift up your soul.
The end of this life of journeying
is not a day to face with fear.
Stride forth into whatever awaits you,
with a smile in your eyes
and a song of love upon your lips.
Beloved, a blessing is always better than a curse.
- Abdur Rahman -
