Hafiz's Poetry of Peace and Love

Forget every idea of right and wrong Any classroom ever taught you

Because an empty heart, a tormented mind,
Unkindness, jealousy and fear

Are always the testimony 
You have been completely fooled!

Turn your back on those
Who would imprison your wondrous spirit 
With deceit and lies
Come, join the honest company
Of the King's beggars -
Those gamblers, scoundrels and divine clowns
And those astonishing fair courtesans
Who need Divine Love every night.

Come, join the courageous Who have no choice
But to bet their entire world
That indeed,
Indeed God is Real
I will lead you into the Circle
Of the Beloved's cunning thieves
Those who playful royal rogues - 
The ones you can trust for true guidance - 
Who can aid you
In this Blessed Calamity of life

Short Bio on Hafiz:

Shamseddin Mohammad - Hafiz very few informative articles have been found supported Hafiz's impotent mythical life, supposedly he had remembered ever line to the Koran in 14 different ways, although born in South-Central  Iran 

I believe poetry like this, is what defines the imagination of the Children of the Kingdom of God forever, although he was a found Muslim, he may have found Christ through all of his treacherousness in the world we live in, but he is a Great poet, possibly the greatest middle eastern poet that I've ever read from 

Being filled with the Holy Ghost allows us to study information at a level of understanding we'd never thought be'd be able to.
