It's your own self

by Hakim Sanai

English version by D.L. Pendlebury
Original Language Persian/Farsi

It's your own self
defining faith and unbelief:
inevitably it colours your perception.
Eternity knows nothing
of belief or unbelief;
for a pure nature
there is no such thing.

-- from The Walled Garden of Truth, by Hakim Sanai / Translated by David Pendlebury
