I asked to ALLAH spare me pain.
ALLAH said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.
I asked ALLAH to make my spirit grow.
ALLAH said, No.
You must grow on your own! ,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
I asked ALLAH for all things that I might enjoy life.
ALLAH said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.
I asked ALLAH to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
ALLAH said…Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
May ALLAH Bless You,

Just believe

Believe in yourself
In the power you have to control your life
Believe in the strength that you have deep inside
and your Faith will help show you the way
Believe in tomorrow and what it will bring
Let a hopeful heart carry you through
For things will work out
If you trust and believe
There is no limit to what you can do


I fight to hide the tears
I battle the fears
Daily I struggle to understand
Why is this happening
It seems my life is a mess
Nothing makes sense
Nothing ever goes as planned
I don’t know what to do about the stress

My love’s kept a secert

Between two hearts
no one knows but us too
You feel the desire
Its burning stronger by the minute
My body yearns for your touch
heart crying in pain of being unable to touch
Your pain of not kissing you hugging and holding you
the secret love is strong between us
But we can’t show it
There are those who will not understand how we meet and grew so close
Sometimes I feel you here with me and I reach out to touch you
Only to wake from my wonderful dreams of you
Someday dear we’ll be together always and forever happily in lovers land
Till then we have our secret love no one but us can touch

(wrote this poem when I was in my early 20’s)
