      A Golden Compass

      Forget every idea of right and wrong
      Any classroom ever taught you

      Because
      An empty heart, a tormented mind,
      Unkindness, jealousy and fear

      Are always the testimony
      You have been completely fooled!

      Turn your back on those
      Who would imprison your wondrous spirit
      With deceit and lies.

      Come, join the honest company
      Of the King's beggars -
      Those gamblers, scoundrels and divine clowns
      And those astonishing fair courtesans
      Who need Divine Love every night.

      Come, join the courageous
      Who have no choice
      But to bet their entire world
      That indeed,
      Indeed, God is Real.

      I will lead you into the Circle
      Of the Beloved's cunning thieves,
      Those playful royal rogues -
      The ones you can trust for true guidance -
      Who can aid you
      In this Blessed Calamity of life.

      Hafiz,
      Look at the Perfect One
      At the Circle's Center:

      He Spins and Whirls like a Golden Compass,
      Beyond all that is Rational,

      To show this dear world

      That Everything,
      Everything in Existence
      Does point to God.
