Shahrzad (Francia Raisa) plays the piano and sings a Rumi poem in Persian/Farsi.
“Advice does not help Lovers!
They are not a mountain stream
you could stop by building a dam across.
A scholar does not understand what a drunk is feeling!
Don’t try to guess or figure out what
Lovers drunk with love might do next.”
- Rumi, 13th C. Persian poet.
