It Is Your Turn Now
By Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi

It is your turn now,
You waited, you were patient.
The time has come,
For us to polish you.
We will transform your inner pearl
Into a house of fire.
You’re a gold mine.
Did you know that,
Hidden in the dirt of the earth?
It is your turn now,
To be placed in fire.
Let us cremate your impurities.

New Year’s Quote
By T. S. Eliot

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language,
And next year’s words await another voice –
To make an end is to make a beginning.
