I asked ALLAH

I asked ALLAH to take away my habit.
ALLAH said,

No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked ALLAH to make my handicapped child whole.
ALLAH said,

No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary
I asked ALLAH to grant me patience.
ALLAH said,

No.
Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
it isn”t granted, it is learned.
I asked ALLAH to give me happiness.
ALLAH said,

No.
I give you blessings;

Happiness is up to you.

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,

Am I Alone?

I get a funny feeling,
It comes from deep inside.
I get all mad and angry,
Wanting to go and hide.

My doctor calls it depression,
My Mom says it’s just me.
But the thoughts and feelings,
No one will ever be able to see.

Some say I’m psycho,
Some say I’m just weird.
It’s like I’m a different person,
And the old me just disappeared.

I get really edgy,
I want to commit suicide real bad.
Then I get a headache,
Followed by feeling sad.

I wish I could get help,
I wish it would go away.
Maybe if I keep praying real hard,
It will some day.

When!

When you feel like frowning,
Smile,
When you feel like crying,
Laugh,
When you feel like quitting,
Start over,
When you yelling,
Whisper,
When you feel like hating,
Love,
When you feel like falling,
Stand,
When you feel like giving up,
Hold on tighter,
When you feel like dying,
Live,
When you feel like talking,
Listen,
When you feel like complaining,
Appreciate,
When you feel like closing your heart,
Care,
When you feel like you can’t do it,
Try,
When you feel like you can’t reach it,
Believe.
