You have a habit to walk slowly…


You have a habit to walk slowly
holding grudges and resentments,
ill tempered and greedy,
how do you expect to reach your destination?

With a closed mind and so many attachments,
how can you expect to attain union?

You are still like water stuck in the mud
when will you cleanse yourself?

Being so weak, you need all the help
and the grace of God, if you are to overcome
the storms and reach the shore to safety.

Take shelter only with those who need no shelter.

Only riding the wild horse of love
you can reach beyond the sun and the moon
and behold the Perfect One.

– Rumi
