Now You Must Seek Nothing But The Source

Beloved has created
your wings not to be dormant

as long as you are alive
you must try more and more
to use your wings to show you’re alive

these wings of yours
are filled with quests and hopes

if they are not used
they will wither away
they will soon decay

you may not like
what i’m going to tell you

you are stuck
now you must seek
nothing but the source

~ Maulana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi Rumi
