As Rumi Said
“The wound is the place where the light enters you.” … Rumi
God’s consistent plan as tapestried for man's time
and blessing-stiched with knowledge threads divine,
decrees that His cherished children faithfully heed
the spiritual growth pains may gain when hearts bleed.
Since the first sad tears from first eyes shed thundered rain,
God has universally issued and used pain
so His children would each yearn to call out His name.
Without dark as hurt fraught, none would seek His light.
Wounds serve to swerve all towards knowledge beyond ourselves
for answers His love-light shines brighter than all else.
