A Poem for Thursday: "Fear" - Rumi

Everyone can see how they have polished the mirror 
of the self, which is done with the longings
we're given.
          Not everyone wants to be king!
There are different roles and many choices 
within each.
          Troubles come. One person packs up 
and leaves. Another stays and deepens in a love 
for being human. 
          In battle, one runs fearing
for his life. Another, just as scared, runs
and fights more fiercely.
