Nafsi!

When the mountains shake
And the fires roar,
When the angels quake
As they never have before,
If you ask me that day
To help and intercede
And I reply
That for my own sake
Alone this day I plead,
Do not dismay
That I abandoned you
If that is what I say;
Rather think instead that if such words are true
What I meant to say is that my own self is you.
