This One is Mine – Poem by Hafiz


Someone put
You on a slave block
And the unreal bought
You.

Now I keep coming to your owner
Saying,

“This one is mine.”

You often overhear us talking
And this can make your heart leap
With excitement.

Don’t worry
I will not let sadness
Possess you.

I will gladly borrow all the gold
I need

To get you
Back.

– Hafiz
