It crushes down on me,
The burden of living,
Oh Lord, forgive my weakness,
Let it be a means by which I turn to you,
For something bigger and greater than myself.
You created this world with so much pain,
Caused by evil, self-interest, shaytan.
I struggle my Lord,
To be strong and brave,
Please grant me the resilience to change,
To be strong and mighty,
For your sake,
So that what people say and do around me is insignificant.
I can simply let it bounce off,
And not absorb it.
People have different motives.
Different to yours,
And I’m not being passive anymore.
I will tolerate it, inshaAllah.
