Hundreds of my friends became enemies

by Sarmad

English version by Isaac A. Ezekiel
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Hundreds of my friends became enemies,
     but the friendship of the One gave solace to my heart.
I chose oneness -- now I am free of the many.
I became his and He became mine at last.

-- from Sarmad: Martyr to Love Divine, by Isaac A. Ezekiel
