My Story

I was going to tell you my story 
but waves of pain drowned my voice. 
I tried to utter a word but my thoughts 
became fragile and shattered like glass. 
Even the largest ship can capsize 
in the stormy sea of love, 
let alone my feeble boat 
which shattered to pieces leaving me nothing 
but a strip of wood to hold on to. 
Small and helpless, rising to heaven 
on one wave of love and falling with the next 
I don't even know if I am or I am not. 
When I think I am, I find myself worthless, 
when I think I am not, I find my value. 
Like my thoughts, I die and rise again each day 
so how can I doubt the resurrection? 
Tired of hunting for love in this world, 
at last I surrender in the valley of love 
and become free.

Maulana Jalaluddin ar-Rumi
