O Unhindered Worm, who observe your own crawling and posit yourself free,
Look to the eagle in the sky,
And consider your confinement.
O Limitless Droplet, who observe your own dimensions and posit yourself vast,
Look to the oceans of the world,
And consider your finitude.
O Thunderous Ant, who observe your own burdens and posit yourself mighty,
Look to the golden lion arrayed with majesty,
And consider your feebleness.
O Glorious Man, who observe your being and dare posit yourself adequate,
Look to God, Creator of All, Progenitor of Infinity, Eternal King, Self-existent One, Source of Life, Judge of Eternity, Origin of Wisdom, I AM,
And consider your depravity.
