Hope you enjoy this...
Und nun, liebe kinder, gebt fein acht:
Die wahrheit wird zu sand gemacht!
...Den streut man jenen in die Augen
die niemals fragen- alles glauben...
Die volle wahrheit zu ertragen
steht jenen an die Fragen fragen-
Nur dem der sie zu stellen wagt:
Und Gott hilf dem der Fragen fragt!
(My children- come and see this land
were truth has long since turned to sand
which wind will blow into the eyes
of those who never question lies...
The truth to bear is for those men
who dare to question- and who then
make asking their most pressing task:
And God help those who dare to ask...)

Here is a poem by Rabi Balkhi of whom wrote with her blood prior to dying inside a prison on the wall (her brother Haris put her in prison for falling in fall with a slave called Baktash):
I am caught in love's wed so deceitful
None of my endeavors turned frauitful,
I knew not when I rode the high-blooded steed.
The harder I pulled it's reins the less it would heed.
Love is an ocean with such a vast space.
A true lover should be faithful till the end.
A face life's reprobated trend.
When you see things hideous, fancy them neat,
Eat poison but taste sugar sweet.
