If this me is not I, then
who am I?
If I am not the one who speaks, then
If this is only a robe then
the one I am covering?
I've had enough of sleeppless nights,
of my unspoken grief, of my tired wisdom.
Come my treasure, my breath of life
come and dress my wounds and be my cure.
Enough of words.
Come to me without a sound.
With every word, you break my heart.
You see my story
written in blood on my face,
why do you ignore it.
do you have a heart of stone?
**** Invoking your name
does not help me see you.I'm blinded by the light of your face.
Longing for your lips
does not bring them any closer. What veils You from me
is my vision of You.
Dear heart, you are so unreasonable!
First you fall in love then worry about your life.
You rob and steal then worry about the law.
You profess to be in love
yet still worry about what people say.
Seek the wisdom
that will untie your knot
seek the path
that demands your whole being. Leave that which is not, but appears
seek that which is, but is
I will give up anything to win your love
but if you say no,
I will accept and walk away filled with
the sweetness of your denial.
... This poem is for the time when you held
the cup before me saying,
"Drink, drink now because if you don't
I will pass the wine to someone else."
You are searching the world for treasure
but the real treasure is yourself. If you are tempted by bread
you will find only bread.
What you seek for
When you see the face of anger
look behind it
and you will see the face of pride. Bring anger and pride
under your feet, turn them into a ladder
and climb higher.
There is no peace until you become their master.
Let go of anger, it may taste sweet
but it kills.
Don't become itsvictim
you need humility to climb to freedom.
My God, do not give me back to myself
do not let me settle for anything but You.
In You I hide escaping from my ruin
please, do not give me back to myself.
