Forgiveness Is The Hafiz

Forgiveness Is The Cash

Is the cash you need.

All the other kinds of silver really buy .. 
Just strange things.

Everything has its music.
Everything has genes of Love inside.

But learn from those courageous addicted lovers
Of glands and opium and gold

They cannot jump high or laugh long
When they are whirling.

And the moon and the stars become sad
When their tender light is used for
Night wars.

Forgiveness is part of the treasure you need
To craft your falcon wings
And return

To your true realm of
Divine freedom.

  1. Of a sudden you did lavish grace upon your servant:

    I saw no cause for it but your infinite kindness ~ ♥
