"You are a royal fish trying to wear pants in a country as foreign as land.
Now there's a problem worth discussing.
Your separation from God had ripened. Now fall like a golden fruit into my hand.
All your wounds from craving love exist because of heroic deeds.
Now trade in those medals; that courage will help this world.
One needs to love those they have yet to love to stand near the Friend.
Why be a royal fish trying to wear pants?
Hafiz, what are you talking about? Has something happened to good brilliant mind?" - HAFIZ
