Poem by Hafiz (Persian 1315-1390)

I have learned so much from God
That I can no longer call myself
A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim
A Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of Itself with me
That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, an angel
Or even pure Soul.

Love has befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And freed me
Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.
