ਹੁਕਮੀ ਹੋਵਨਿ ਆਕਾਰ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਨ ਕਹਿਆ ਜਾਈ ॥ हुकमी होवनि आकार हुकमु न कहिआ जाई ॥
By His Command, bodies are created; His Command cannot be described.

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਹੋਵਨਿ ਜੀਅ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥ हुकमी होवनि जीअ हुकमि मिलै वडिआई ॥ By His Command, souls come into being; by His Command, glory and greatness are obtained.

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਉਤਮੁ ਨੀਚੁ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਲਿਖਿ ਦੁਖ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਈਅਹਿ ॥ हुकमी उतमु नीचु हुकमि लिखि दुख सुख पाईअहि ॥
By His Command, some are high and some are low; by His Written Command, pain and pleasure are obtained.

ਇਕਨਾ ਹੁਕਮੀ ਬਖਸੀਸ ਇਕਿ ਹੁਕਮੀ ਸਦਾ ਭਵਾਈਅਹਿ ॥ इकना हुकमी बखसीस इकि हुकमी सदा भवाईअहि ॥
Some, by His Command, are blessed and forgiven; others, by His Command, wander aimlessly forever.

ਹੁਕਮੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਹੁਕਮ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥ हुकमै अंदरि सभु को बाहरि हुकम न कोइ ॥
Everyone is subject to His Command; no one is beyond His Command.

ਨਾਨਕ ਹੁਕਮੈ ਜੇ ਬੁਝੈ ਤ ਹਉਮੈ ਕਹੈ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥੨॥ नानक हुकमै जे बुझै त हउमै कहै न कोइ ॥२॥ O Nanak, one who understands His Command, does not speak in ego. ||2||

Well this Shabad says that its our ego to say that we are doer otherwise everything already in his hukam or already been written or decided.So what about our free will?

Is this world a drama. To explain this You have three states you sleep, dream and are awake. for Analogy consider Sleep is when you die. Dream is the current world you are in ( just like the movie Matrix) Awake is we never are ( only the enlightened ones are truly awake)

Think of yourself as a robot, A Robot is programmed i.e. his nature is pre-written by a programmer.

ਹੁਕਮੀ (Commander) ਹੋਵਨਿ (wills) ਆਕਾਰ (shape) ਹੁਕਮੁ (Command) ਨ ਕਹਿਆ ਜਾਈ (can't be said) ॥

( you didn't chose to come into this world you were sent)

ਹੁਕਮੀ (Commander) ਹੋਵਨਿ (wills) ਜੀਅ (soul) ਹੁਕਮਿ (Commander) ਮਿਲੈ (receive) ਵਡਿਆਈ (greatness)॥

(Successful people think that they earned success, But it is pre written in their destiny and a gift given from god)

ਹੁਕਮੀ (Commander) ਉਤਮੁ (greatness) ਨੀਚੁ (small) ਹੁਕਮਿ (Commander) ਲਿਖਿ (written) ਦੁਖ (sorrow) ਸੁਖ (joy) ਪਾਈਅਹਿ (recieve) ॥

(By His Command [pre-written destiny] some are born poor (in suffering) some rich(in joy). So bascially this means that if you are in suffering don't worry about it its written in your destiny and what has to happen will happen )

ਇਕਨਾ (one) ਹੁਕਮੀ (Commander) ਬਖਸੀਸ (grants) ਇਕਿ (one) ਹੁਕਮੀ (Commander) ਸਦਾ (always) ਭਵਾਈਅਹਿ (emotionally attached)॥

Some are blessed and enlightened with the knowledge that this world is not real, but just an illusion running in a dream that feels real. Some people cling to materialistic things and wander ( keep taking birth and dying) with no knowledge.

ਹੁਕਮੈ (Command) ਅੰਦਰਿ (inside) ਸਭੁ ਕੋ (everyone/ everything) ਬਾਹਰਿ (outside) ਹੁਕਮ (Command) ਨ ਕੋਇ (not is) ॥ Everyone and everything happens with His Command; no one is beyond His Command.

ਨਾਨਕ (Nanak) ਹੁਕਮੈ (Commander) ਜੇ (who) ਬੁਝੈ (deciphers) ਤ (then) ਹਉਮੈ (I am) ਕਹੈ (say) ਨ (no) ਕੋਇ (one) ॥੨॥

The person who understood the above will never said "I" did this or did that, I achieved success or failure , I am suffering or in joy, But these things are happening to me via an external force.

Hope makes sense.
