The Same Language

To speak the same language

Is kinship and affinity,

Yet a person stuck with those

He can’t confide in

Is trapped like a prisoner

Enchained by lack of understanding.

It is, indeed, ironic:

There are many people

From India and Turkey

Who speak the same language,

While there are countless Turks

Who really can’t understand one another.

The universal language is authentic insight.

To be one in heart is surely superior

To only speaking the same words.

Rumi
