I Am and I Am Not - Rumi

    I'm drenched
    in the flood
    which has yet to come

    I'm tied up
    in the prison
    which has yet to exist...

    Not having played
    the game of chess
    I'm already the checkmate

    Not having tasted
    a single cup of your wine
    I'm already drunk

    Not having entered
    the battlefield
    I'm already wounded and slain

    I no longer
    know the difference
    between image and reality

    Like the shadow
    I am
    And
    I am not
