ESSENCE: Baba Farid ji in first slok identify the predictable nature of death to come and we still being not ready and being in pain as soul and body part ways. Farid ji point out how exacting one needs to be such eventuality as though trying to go across a hair thin bridge at such a time of death.
Farid ji then describe how we carry unnecessary burdens as back packs versus knowing the ways of creation and the worldly distraction. Farid ji says that the creator still saves us. Farid ji suggest one to wisely spend the breaths and leave pride aside as such has no meaning to the purer one so much like a child. Farid ji suggest dedication and commitment to savor the creator as there is none other. Farid ji suggest introspection and piety versus ill treatment or revenge against others.
Farid ji in a continuing focus on lost time and passage of time remind to be vigilant and seeking the creator from early on versus gray hair, end getting nearer, sugar has become like poison, eyesight has weakened and so has the hearing, who else to seek other than the creator as the one that can cure.
Farid ji conclude in the 12th slok say for one whose hair when black is unlikely to do much when it is grey. However there still may be a chance through endearing the creator.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.
