Either seem as you are or be as you seem I
A natural event, a childhood story, a book I read, memories and feelings I am laden with constitute the source of my pieces.
Be like the sun in affection, in compassion
Be like the night in hiding faults
Be like a river in favours, in benevolence
Be dead in anger, in nervosity
Be like earth in modesty, in honesty
Either seem as you are, or be as you seem.
-Mavlana Jalal-ad Din Rumi
