A Leap of Faith

What a leap of faith
In one way or another
Surrendering to life to that extent
That You seize to exist
Just pure flow
Death of all the identities
It takes a skillful and wise man
To give himself away like that
While staying himself
And becoming more than he ever was

True surrender is dying
True surrender is living
True surrender is giving
True surrender is all You can ever do
Life will make You surrender to it’s mighty current
In death or in life
Nowhere to hide
Only way is to decide
Do I live or do I die?
