If you are a man of the Attar

When in chain, a chain breaker one must be.
Having lost the way, a road guide one must be.

In one moment, a thousand years one must live.
In one instant, a thousand places one must be.

If you are a man of the Path, through blood you must walk.
And if your feet collapse, on you head you must walk.

Plant your step on the road and ask nothing.
For the road itself will tell you how you must walk.

~ Attar Nishaburi
