Pick the Lock

There are so many keys on your ring,
so many fine spiritual sayings
you can recite; so many pictures
of saints in your house.
But you rarely work hard enough,
peer deep enough,
to pick the lock.

You should have stopped reading
pages ago --
if not in this book, in another --
and just sat down
and done whatever it took
to grab God by the tail
and pull Him from a cave in you.

 -- Hafiz
