No end to the journey

No end, no end to the journey
no end, no end never

how can the heart in love
ever stop opening

if

you love me,
you won’t just die once

in 

every moment
you will die into me
to be reborn into this new love, 

die
your way begins
on the other side
become the sky


take an axe to the prison wall,

escape

walk out like someone
suddenly born into color
do it now

 Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

(1207 – 1273) 

Afghanistan & Turkey 

English version by Robert Bly
Original Language Persian/Farsi
