Doha 4

माटी कहै कुम्हार से, क्या तू रौंदे मोहि

इक दिन ऐसा होयेगा, मैं रौंदूंगी तोहि ||

“Maati kahai kumhaar se, kya tu raunde mohi,

Ik din aisa hoyegaa, main raundungi tohi” ||

The clay tells the potter, “O Potter, what will you trample me, there will be a time in future when I trample on you”. Kabir warns of the dangers of going against nature, goodness etc with pride/arrogance/egotism and says that one day the tables could be turned against us too.
