You're very harsh....! by Rumi

I said: 'You're very harsh.'

'But,' He answered,
'My harshness comes from goodness,
not from rancour, not from spite.

I strike down those who enter saying, "I..." -
for this is Love's tabernacle,
not a cocktail party.

Rub your eyes...
behold the image of your heart!'

~ Rumi
