To Be A Friend

Be a friend ,

Be a friend to the poor ,

To the lonely ,to the sick
Bake a cake ,

Make a call ,

Spend a day have a ball
Finding out what makes other people tick
Don’t suppose when someone’s old they don’t need a hand to hold because from one to one hundred we depend.
On some love we can share ,

On just knowing someone’s there
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend lend a hand as you’re traveling life’s road
Don’t sit home on a shelf , give your time , give yourself find a way to ease someone else’s load.
Pat a back , lend an ear, share a smile ,

Wipe a tear be a dear,

You’ll spread joy with each hand that you extend and you will find when you do twice as much comes back to you .
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend
There’s a world out there waiting for your touch.
And though you may be small ,

If you’ll give it your all ,the good you do can add up to very much.
While you’re strong and can give that’s the right way to live for the love that you share you only lend
When it’s all said and done someday you will need a friend
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend,….

Be a friend!

Alone and Suffering

You see her standing there

The blank sonic look  on her face

You ask her what is wrong

She replies I’m fine

When in reality she is in pain

She hides the pain and hurt no one sees it

She cries herself  to sleep

In the morning she struggles her day

She has given up on ever finding a  friend

She silently prays that the pain will end

She has battled this demon that people call loneliness and depression she don’t know when

No one understands and care how she feels

She silently Prays that Allah will grant her relief

She feels isolated from the muslim community never really fitting in anywhere

Mostly she stays to herself , best thing you could do to help her is reach out offer to have tea or just talk loneliness hurts more than you know

Please do not judge her she is trying her best to survive  taking it one day at a time

Kindness and caring go along way so does saying as salam alikum sister how are you doing and actually listening because under the softly spoken I’m fine there is a catch and pause in her voice and the look in her eyes cries I’m not ok please hug me and let me know I’m not alone!

But most of the time it is ignored and she just suffers in silence alone as always

 

 

Thoughts

Thoughts

I feel now that I want to die
I sweet know exactly why
I wonder now if I should even try
I want something perfect
I want something I almost had
now that I’ve lost it
I feel nothing but depression and anger
the only thing I wanted
was something I’ll never have
I want to forget
but there no way I can

I thought I was stronger
and thought my pain was over
I don’t know what to do
how to think
to make it all feel better
it’s all for the best

Prayer of strength

I am forever stuggling with faith

I pray for strength, to make me calm and stronger 

My mind wanders far from me 

I lose my words and scramble the words together, 

I pray to Allah for strength  and understanding 

I  alone in my faith like a outcast

I dont really fit in anywere 

I drifted alone aimlessly, 

I  accept Islam and believe in it with all my heart

I  no friends I’m the forgotten one

I am invisible even in my own home

I sit alone in my room never included in  discisions 

I am a afterthought 

I pray to Allah to ease my loneliness and give me strength

  

Simple Friend vs Real Friend

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.
A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.

A simple friend has never seen you cry.

A real friend has shoulders soggy  from your tears.

A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ first names.

A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.

A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.

A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed.

A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.
A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems.

A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.
A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.
A real friend could blackmail you with it.
A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument.

A real friend calls you after you had a fight.
A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.

A real friend expects to always be there for you!

Blossoms Of Beauty

My sisters, you come in many colours
each with a shape and beauty all its own
like flowers in a garden
who can say which is best?

Tiny flaws are swallowed up by
massive beauty
The more you look
the more is uncovered
revealing delicate softness
covered with thick stalks
and some times thorns

We grow hardness without
to protect the vulnerability within

The flower dies all too soon
but in the spring
a new bud will form on a sturdy stalk
a new beauty yet to blossom
and share its God-given splendour
with the world.

Gone

in the cold pale morn
her cold dead lips
shorn
she wasn’t in love
she never was
the death that took her was
quite
excruciating
doctors diagnosed
Depression
but that’s not
why she died
she died
of
despair
loneliness
because
no one cared
no one called
her on the phone
she had no one
no one even
knew where
she lived
at work she was overlooked
the best in her
field
but
no one
noticed
cared
her friends
or so they called
themselves
described her
as
withdrawn
quite
shy
soft-spoken
very timid
around guys
she died
because
no one
loved her
her heart
broke
from
lack of
affection
of human contact
one day
she decides
to disappear
she thought
what’s the use
no one cares
all they do is give me abuse
physical
mental
sexual
i get bullied
and
harassed
at work
by some weirdo jerk
who grabs my ass
the day
she died from
lack of love
no one noticed
they didn’t
see the empty
shell
she was still
alive to them
they didn’t
realize
the distance look
in her eyes
no one realized
until it was too late
by then she was
gone
gone was her
smile
her laugh
in its place
was a Blank
sonic look
