The Lesson of Hope

…and its contradictions and inconsistencies are blissfully maddening. Nothing on Earth is so sought after yet understood so little. It is in loving that humans are best taught the lesson of hope: without love there is no faith and without faith there can be no love.

13th-century Persian poet and mystic Rumi
The minute
I heard
my first
love story,
I started
for you,
not knowing
how blind
that was.
