A Prayer of Despair


* * *

If my anguish would turn into tears, oceans would overflow

If my sorrow would burn like fire, supernovas would roar and blow

Wish I could turn the clock back, delete every word I know

Wish I could erase my mind of every image I ever saw

“Ah! would that I had died before this!

Would that I had been a thing forgotten, out of sight!”

(Qur’an, Mariam 19:23)
“يَـٰلَيۡتَنِى مِتُّ قَبۡلَ هَـٰذَا وَڪُنتُ نَسۡيً۬ا مَّنسِيًّ۬ا”

This is not a complaint, but a mere description of my pain

A hollow shell without You, a heap of nothingness

Scattered by wind, eroded by rain

I saw evil, I know it exists, I hold it in disdain

Let it not touch me, let it not near me

Let it not spoil my heart, let it not soil my soul

Solemnly I refrain

Thy refuge I seek, Thy guidance I follow, faithful I remain

Curious, no doubt, how could I not be?

Wanted to know EVERYTHING !

Forgot the wisdom, “be careful of what you ask for”

A footstep to Your Splendour, I asked to be

Commonsense! A footstep would be crushed under!

Hopefully not in vain
Empty me of me

Fill me of Your Love, fill me of Your Mercy

Sanity I regain

Curious, no doubt, how could I not be?

All I wanted to know is, what could be behind the edge of Universe!

 

And what is this fabulous life, all about?

 

That’s all !

Wherever I turn, whatever I do

I saw Your Splendour and awesome wonder, all around
Swept off my feet, blown away, besotted I sway, I meander

I fell in love with Your creation, before I was born

Flying between galaxies, bouncing over starts

Sliding over rainbows, dancing with sunshine

Weaving my curly hair with rays of moonlight

Clusters of daisies and a wreath of jasmine for my weary heart

Who would grieve when You are the Comforter?

Who would know fear, with Your Consolation?

Who would suffer pain, when You are the Healer?

Who would despair, when You are the Guide

O soul calm down, come and heed the call
Kneel down and pray, God is the Greatest, God is Sublime
That spark within you, what you’ve been yearning for

 

WOW !

O Balm of Mercy!
O Pure Holy Light !

I find my bearings, radiant again my face

Dazzled in amazement, grateful is my heart

Sparkle in my eyes, tranquil is my soul

Dreaming of tomorrow, peaceful, full of joy
