Peace, one and all…
This poem is of recent vintage and is my response to a particular situation. Enjoy…
Ya Allah! The Road towards You is littered with dead ends. Guide me, Lord.
‘Don’t be sad,
for all souls are battered and bruised
in Life’s unsubtle school.
All must face their share of envy,
their share of grief.
Credit those near you with goodness of heart
and put aside your unworthy comparison.
Think long and think hard:
was it really a deed uncharitable?
Look once more with kinder eyes
and see the sorrow your unhappy pain has caused.
Be like a mirror and reflect:
on where you are,
how you got there,
and where you go from here.
Answers will come to you –
fresh from God’s Eye –
once you see these things with the sight of truth.
A problem shared, is a problem halved
says the truthful proverb.
Yet I would add this:
‘Pain thrown wide, is merely pain increased’
