the mirror and the mirror maker


tu bacha bacha ke na rakh isse

tera aaina hai, dar aaina

jo shikast ho to azeez tar hai

nigaah-e-aaina saaz mein

– iqbal

shikast – being broken; aaina saaz – mirror maker

don’t hide your heart away, don’t protect it. it is a mirror unto yourself, a mirror that shows you the deepest truths of who you are. live by it, live through it, bare it open to the world. have courage. know that it is better to have lived for what ignites you with passion, even if it ended in failure. for when the mirror is shattered, the mirror maker loves it even more. he has made it with love and care. god is the maker of all our hearts. don’t waste them.
