I Want To Drink
I am thirsty to find out the spirituality of God,
A goblet is not enough for me, I need to drink a bottle of wine of God.
I don’t need to drink just one, two or three of bottles of awareness of God,
So, I need to drink casks of monotheism to know my God,
I am like a piece of dust full of sins and ignorant of why I came,
I need to know myself starting from my creation, in the beginning, nothing, I was just a dirty piece of clay in the land of unknown.
I am the son of Adam, but I am thirsty to know my land.
From which land I came, in the beginning, and to which land I will be back.
I need to drink the wine of understanding myself.
Why I came and why I should go back to that land I came from
I should know this land is an exam, on that land is my own land.
I am thirsty to drink more than goblets of knowledge of Spirituality of God.
Until my spiritual thirst becomes full of Unique Worship in the way of God.
