Rumi: Everyone is overridden by thoughts

Rumi: Everyone is overridden by thoughts

Photo: Bedouin warriors; 1898.


Everyone is overridden by thoughts;
that's why they have so much heartache and sorrow.
At times I give myself up to thought purposefully;
but when I choose,
I spring up from those under its sway.
I am like a high-flying bird,
and thought is a gnat:

how should a gnat overpower me?
