While strolling around KLCC, I got intrigued by an installation in one of KLCC’s parks. It had on it inscriptions of poetry about love. It was just a few days after Valentines and I was not especially thrilled to be reminded of it. But the message of the poem really touched me. I later found out that it was written by the great Rumi.
The poem, entitled “Two Wings to Fly,” starts with the line “Love endures hardships at the hands of the Beloved” and that pretty much sums up the theme of the prose. Reading the entire poem made me realize why even in all the years of sadness I chose to be alive.
