Troubles

‘You trouble me’
I announced
to myself.
‘Yes,
You
Disturb me
Burden me
Hurt me.’
Yet all these troubles
distract me
from me
for a while.
Then the resident despot
asserts a new self, reinvented.
A new old story takes me back to nowhere
where I may end up as
Real me.

by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
