Stop Being So Religious ~ Poem by Hafiz


Art by Robert Sturman of Brian aganad on the beach doing yogaStop Being So Religious

What

Do sad people have in

Common?

It seems

They have all built a shrine

To the past

And often go there

And do a strange wail and

Worship.

What is the beginning of

Happiness?

It is to stop being

So religious

Like That.

(“The Gift” – versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky)
