Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi – 13th Century Mystic Poet
Rumi knew the truths
O’ those many years ago
He tried to tell us
Sadly too many missed it
Now look at the state we’re in

Thank you my friend, I very much appreciate it.
He did indeed, we should all learn from his wisdom.
We should, he was wise then and just as wise, if not more so now.
I am a big Rumi fan and feel his sayings and philosophy remind me of Confucius and are “zen-like.”
I saw your comment about Bernie Sanders and wanted to say I believe he may be the candidate we need. 🙂
I too love Rumi, I am amazed with how much wisdom he imparts in such small quotes. With regard to Bernie Sanders I wholeheartedly believe that he is the candidate we need. He may be called a socialist or social democrat, but whatever he is called he still makes very good sense. I personally don’t see any other candidate that has the commonsense that Bernie has, nor a track record that has shown he does not flip-flop. He has had many of the same beliefs that he expresses now for over 35 years. That to me is a person of conviction.
