I am you, I am you, I am Rumi

I am gone,
lost any sense of wanting the wine
Of the nowhereness ask me,
I don't know where I am.

At times I plunge
To the bottom of the sea,
At times, rise up
Like the Sun.

At times,
the universe is pregnant by me,
At times I give birth to it.

The milestone in my life
Is the nowhereness,
I don't fit anywhere else.

This is me:
A rogue and a drunkard,
Easy to spot
In the tavern of Lovers.
I am the one shouting hey ha.

They ask me why I don't
Behave myself.
I say, when you
Reveal your true nature,
Then I will act my age.

Last night, I saw Goodness getting drunk.
He growled and said,
I am a nuisance, a nuisance.

A hundred souls cried out, but
We are yours, we are yours, we are yours.
You are the light

That spoke to Moses and said
I am God, I am God, I am God.

I said Beloved, who are you?
He said, I am you, I am you, I am you

~ Rumi
