I'm bird



I'm   bird, from the kingdom of heave, 
Not made of dust.
For a short while,my body is a cage,
From which my soul shall bust

 **********************

Everyone is overridden by thoughts;
that's why they have so much heartache and sorrow.
At times I give myself up to thought purposefully;
but when I choose,
I spring up from those under its sway.
I am like a high-flying bird,
and thought is a gnat:
how should a gnat overpower me?

Theses above two verses are written by Rumi. Does any one read him ? If not then check this, this and this .

  10. My 'best favorite'...Rumi. And he does write a lot like you think, Izdiher Jan

    His wisdom, inspired. His insights are to be treasured by us 'common Peeps'!
    You can quote him ANYTIME, and you'll have a 'winner'.

    Thank you!
    PEACE!
