Only God Knows Best - a Poem by Rumi

Think of death as a negligible accident for a true believer
The carriage of death always hides deep into the darkness.
Symbolize death like the flower of death or lily flower.
Seek your rebirth on the other side of reality.
Like a thirsty seeker, refuse to quench your spiritual thirst
in this materialistic world.
Go and annihilate your own Self.
A thirsty seeker dies seeking the water of death
Thus water effectively becomes the source of death.
But why would the thirsty still prefer drinking water of death?
Wa Allah Hu Alam Bis Sawab/ Only God Knows Best.

مرگ دان آنک اتفاق امتست
 کاب حیوانی نهان در ظلمتست
همچو نیلوفر برو زین طرف جو
 همچو مستسقی حریص و مرگ‌جو
مرگ او آبست و او جویای آب
 ميخورد والله اعلم بالصواب
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي
