MYSTICAL POEMS: “Run” (from spiritual confinement) by Hafiz

Run, my dear,
from anything that may not strengthen
your precious budding wings,

Run like hell, my dear,
from anyone likely to put a sharp knife
into the sacred, tender vision
of your beautiful heart.

We have a duty to befriend
those aspects of obedience
that stand outside of our house
and shout to our reason
“oh please, oh please
come out and play!”

For we have not come here to take prisoners,
or to confine our wondrous spirits,
But to experience ever and ever more deeply
our divine courage, freedom,
and Light.

—Hafiz

  1. True words of pure wisdom from Rumi. We have not come here to fight or hate each other but to love everyone with love and compassion and be United as One. The picture was so beautiful, Amira.
