Wake Up! Wake Up!

Wake Up, Wake Up

Rumi

this night is gone

wake up


abandon  abandon

even your dear self

abandon




there is an idiot

in our market place

selling a precious soul


if you doubt my word

get up this moment

and head for the market now


don’t listen to trickery

don’t listen to the witches

don’t wash blood with blood


first turn yourself upside down

empty yourself like a cup of wine

then fill to the brim with the essence


a voice is descending

from the heavens

a healer is coming


if you desire healing

let yourself fall ill

let yourself fall ill
