muhammad hafiz

I am the one
who is renown in the city
for love-making!
I am the one
who has not polluted her vision
with seeing flaws!

We’ll stay faithful,
endure blame,
and be happy!
Because on our path
it is heresy
to be disturbed by criticism!

I asked the master of the tavern,
“What is the way to salvation?”
He raised a goblet and said,
“Concealing faults!”
- Hafez
