Looking for author
Hi everyone! I am new to this. I am writing a book and want to include a poem I saw on a post on Facebook. I need to find out if it can be attributed to anyone. Here it is:
You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.
If anyone can find the author of this please let me know or at least tell me where it originated.
I just copy and pasted the entirety of that poem into Bing.com, and got a ton of results. I checked two, and they agreed that it's the work of Rumi.
(here's one of the results I checked, from page one of the search results)
I used to read a little collection of Rumi poems every day while commuting, you might find more by him that you enjoy.
