Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.

“Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.” Mevlana
Not Like This Before

I wasn’t like this before. I wasn’t out of my mind and senses.
Once I used to be wise like you, not crazy, insane and broken down like I am now.

I wasn’t the admirer of life which has no trace, no being.
I used to ask : “Who is this?
What is that?,”
and search all the time.

Since you have wisdom,
sit and think
that probably I was like this before.
I haven’t changed much.

I used to try
to make myself better than everybody.
I hadn’t been hunted
with the ever-growing Love before.

I tried to rise above the sky
with my ambition
yet I didn’t know.
I was just wandering in the desert.
At the end,
I have raised a treasure from the ground.


Mevlana
