This poem gives new meaning to the “..But I’m Sleep Though” meme

Those who don’t feel this love

pulling them like a river

those who don’t drink dawn

like a cup of spring water

or take sunset like supper

those who don’t want to change

let them sleep…

This Love is beyond the study of theology

that old trickery and hypocrisy

If you want to improve your mind that way

sleep on.

I’ve given up on my brain

I’ve torn the cloth to shreds

and thrown it away.

If you’re not completely naked

wrap your beautiful robe of words around you

and sleep.

~Rumi
