Ch 02 The Morals Of Dervishes Story 04

A thief paid a visit to the house of a pious man but, although he sought a great deal, found nothing and was much grieved. The pious man, who knew this, threw the blanket upon which he had been sleeping into the way of the thief that he might not go away disappointed.

I heard that men of the way of God
Have not distressed the hearts of enemies.
How canst thou attain that dignity
Who quarrelest and wagest war against friends?

The friendship of pure men, whether in thy presence or absence, is not such as Will find fault behind thy back and is ready to die for thee before thy face.

In thy presence gentle like a lamb,
In thy absence like a man-devouring wolf.

Who brings the faults of another to thee and enumerates them Will undoubtedly carry thy faults to others.

making mistakes is just part of being human. nobody is perfect, dear. and what is more important than seeing these mistakes and correcting it by not doing it again. this poem will help others understand the importance of sharing experiences...not to degrade your protagonist but to make others realized their own mistakes. very moving! : -)
Its seems like words of a person who is in despair, yet not convinced of what and why certain things happened, but try to make your heart understand.... now let it go, but.....! You have put it together nicely.....
