IF

30.1.12



IF
IF you can disentangle

yourself from your selfish self

all heavenly spirits
 will stand ready to serve you
if you can finally hunt down

your own beastly self

you have the right

to claim Solomon’s kingdom
you are that blessed soul who

belongs to the garden of paradise

is it fair to let yourself

fall apart in a shattered house
you are the bird of happiness

in the magic of existence

what a pity when you let

yourself be chained and caged
but if you can break free

from this dark prison named body

soon you will see

you are the sage and the fountain of life
- Rumi (translated by Nader Khalili)
