Every human wants,
An object or person to love,
To adore and to cherish,
And to devote their attentions to.
But all objects will perish,
And all that will be left are ideas,
Thoughts our minds will cling onto,
Or hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow.
The best ones are those who chase meaning and purpose,
Not in fading things but ones that are strong and secure,
So when our world crumbles,
There are ideas that stay firm and rooted.
Everyone has a faith,
Whether they choose to acknowledge it or not.
The best faith is islam as it teaches the truth,
It explains the why and the how,
It’s a clear message from the Creator of the world.
So pick the best message and live with that peace.
Carry paradise in your pocket,
And distance yourself from hell.
Oh, it can be mighty hard,
But terribly worth it, i must insist.
This lesson’s for me too,
I struggle every day,
To be the best version of me,
And to push myself hard,
When I’d much rather stay in bed and lie down,
Be passive and watch the world go by.
But if it’s success I want,
This is clearly no approach.
I have to take charge and be a boss.
That’s the only way things will work,
And if I turn to Allah every day,
And pray that He keeps me firm on this path,
When the world just wants to steer me away.
It’s so hard to live a meaningful life,
When people want to strip you away of your questioning soul and existence.
Human greed and desires drive our actions,
But we must get on top of that,
And extinguish our vices.
Be brave and strong,
And rise above these weaknesses.
Allah is the greatest,
And He can see our every struggle.
Keep connecting with Him,
And inshaAllah everything will be smooth.
