You Are Free

This is an Arabic Poem i once heard and it forever stuck with me, Below is the translation in English

You are free
You are free before the noon day sun.
You are free before the moon,
and you are free before the stars.
And you are free when there is no sun
And when there is no moon,
and when there isn’t a single star in the sky.
But you are a slave,
You are a slave to the one you love,
Because you love him
And you are a slave to the one you love because he loves you back.

Arabic poet

“This poem to me reflects one of the most important elements of our lives. Our souls are born free to this earth and the surroundings it provides, the one thing we humans are susceptible to is surrendering to Love.”
