 If you are a man of this life

then march on this path like a man

or retire and take refuge in your house

since you are not ready for this battle

real men drank a thousand seas and

still died of thirst

you only had a cup

yet boasted of overflowing

you claimed to reach your quest

you’ll raise all the dust

yet you’ve travelled no distance

you’ve left no mark

now humbly turn to dust

under the gallop of real men

then you’ll rise and

become a part of their journey

if you crawl for years

on the path of your quest

do not yield to grief

do not submit to distress

– Rumi
