Dervish - Poem by Metin Sahin

Being a dervish is not easy
it is an iron nut
to be swallowed
or to be eaten
you must devote yourself to the LORD
thoroughly
you will never tire or be weary
you will never complain
with patience
you must suffer the days
in agony
lasting may be one or thousands of days
or years
what is said to you must be done
with no counter action
you must obey and obey
thus
you harvest the rose of the LORD..THE GOD and ALLAH
youm must take and learn lessons
from the sermons..discussıons and conversations
your self being
must be abolished thoroughly
you must beat yourself
and your embitions
you contact with honesty
reality
you must reach to the real secrecy

    ....and there are some dervesh who are so by nature though not by appearance...the eligibility criterion for becoming a dervish you talked about shows that it is not easy even to become a dervish in this world...! ! ! (Report)Reply
