I am afraid.....By Hafiz

I am afraid that my tears
might tear away the veil of my grief…
that this hidden secret
might become the world’s fable.

They say that a stone becomes a ruby
when it attains the stage of Patience.
Certainly it does! – 

but only with blood !

I will go to the Tavern, lamenting -
demanding justice,
because Over there,
I can be freed from this empire of grief .

I have shot
the arrows of my prayer every direction,
one of them might be successful.
