A Poem from Rumi, How long will I keep burning in your flame

Posted by Parsin on April 2, 2008

How long will I keep burning in your flame?
How long will you still turn away from me?
How many friends will turn from me in shame?
How long will I still hurt? How long will you be free?

 

from Rumi’s Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi

    Shahrzad,
    Politics and daily problems takes all of us away from poetry. I actually chose “Rumi” for this purpose and as you know there are elements of polarism in his wonderful poems.
