Come with us – Mevelana Rumi

If you never searched for truth
come with us
and you will become a seeker.
If you were never a musician
come with us
and you will find your voice.
You may posses immense wealth
come with us
and you will become love’s beggar.
You may think yourself a master
come with us
and love will turn you into a slave.
If you’ve lost your spirit,
come with us
take off your silk coverings,
put on our rough cloak
and we will bring you back to life.

           Ghazal/Ode 74, Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi, may Allah sanctify his soul & bless his secret
