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


you love me,
you won’t just die once


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

your way begins
on the other side
become the sky

take an axe to the prison wall,


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
