Where did I come from?

A wonderful ‪#‎Rumi‬ writing to inspire you to see yourself as you really are in 2016 and not settle for less! Love you, Silvia

“All day I think about it, then at night I say it.
Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that,
And I intend to end up there. 

This drunkenness began in some other tavern.
When I get back around to that place I’ll be completely sober.
Meanwhile, I’m like a bird from another continent, sitting in this aviary.

The day is coming when I fly off,
But who is it now in my ear, who hears my voice?
Who says words with my mouth?
Who looks out with my eyes?
What is soul?
I cannot stop asking.

If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn’t come here of my own accord, and I can’t leave that way.
Whoever brought me here will have to take me home!”
