In securing your house against thieves,
you turn your home into a prison
and while thieves roam freely abroad
in fear you languish within.
In closing the door against what is bad,
you prevent what is good from entering in.
You have perhaps forgotten,
that darkness and light follow each other
and without either there can be no day.
What is it from which protection must be sought,
and who or what is it that must be protected?
While cats chase their tails endlessly
and jakals howl hollowly at the moon
Those who are called
must awaken and be on their way.
