Poet's Corner: You Are as You Are

You Are as You Are

You do not resemble anyone.
You are not the bride or the groom.

You do not fit in a house with anyone.
You have left the closed-in corner
where you lived. Domestic animals
get ridden to work. Not you.

You are as you are,
an indescribable message on the air.

Mawlānā Jalāl-ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (1207 – 1273)
