“And your very flesh shall be a great poem”

Love the earth and sun and animals,
Despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid and crazy,
Devote your income and labor to others…
And your very flesh shall be a great poem.

– Walt Whitman

    Thank you for the comment, Benton :) Indeed, Whitman’s poem sums up the Sufi path as well.

    Ya Haqq!
