      The time has come

      the time has come
      to break all my promises
      tear apart all chains
      and cast away all advice
      disassemble the heavens
      link by link
      and break at once
      all lovers' ties
      with the sword of death
      put cotton inside
      both my ears
      and close them to
      all words of wisdom
      crash the door and
      enter the chamber
      where all sweet
      things are hidden
      how long can i
      beg and bargain
      for the things of this world
      while love is waiting
      how long before
      i can rise beyond
      how i am and
      what i am
      Rumi
