It was sad to see someone that I once loved so much,
Just casually pass me by,
Like I was a complete stranger to them.
For a long time it would hurt me so painfully,
But today the pain was a lot less,
Which I am highly grateful and thankful for.
This issue has made me realise,
That there’s a problem with my soul,
When I felt so needy of another’s approval and attention.
That isn’t the way things were meant to be,
It was meant to be Allah who I craved to please,
The one whose attention I needed,
How I needed to fall and be bruised,
To remember and learn such a significant truth.
But Alhamdulillah that I was reminded,
For that is a great blessing and an honour,
To be given the opportunity to build my strength and resilience,
For I feel like I am more prepared to tackle what comes towards me now,
If Allah wills of course.
