Who Are We in This Complicated World?

Rumi was a 13th century Iranian mystic poet. His poems are internationally acclaimed and he is considered one of the most inspirational poets of all time.

I love many of his poems, but today I chose to post this one.

It puts me at peace as I find comfort in his words. I hope you do too.

If we come to sleep
we are His drowsy ones.
and if we come to wake
we are in His hands.
If we come to weeping,
we are His cloud full of raindrops.
and if we come to laughing,
we are His lightning in that moment.
If we come to anger and battle,
it is the reflection of His wrath.
and if we come to peace and pardon,
it is the reflection of His love.
