    SURRENDER

    Don't try to change through force,
    Don't try to change circumstances through effort,
    Don't try to forget who you can't through pain,
    Don't try to change your reality through living in a distortion.

    Surrender, completely to what is,
    Surrender, completely to what might be,
    Surrender, completely to reality,
    Surrender, your whole self.

    When you don't accept reality,
    Then you try to change it,
    You keep trying to change it,
    But, Reality doesn't change.

    Trying hard will bring pain,
    Trying hard will bring misery,
    Trying hard will bring an end,
    Surrender, yourself to what is, what might be.
