Earth shivered at every drop of blood shed unjustly,
Sky cried over barbaric killings of one human by another,
Animals quivered with another genocide of history.
Humanity was mutilated for no reason at all.
Eid….. a blessed day,
Laughter and smile on each face,
Boys, girls, men, women and all,
Dressed up with sparkling eyes,
Celebrating eid with hopeful hearts,
Yet not forget those who are in need,
Remember them always in your heart,
Help them as much as you can,
As this is what eid is all about.
Sitting on my prayer mat
With my head bowed down.
Eyes closed and hands in a fold.
I connected with my creator
And pour myself out.
Attaining internal bliss with peaceful heart.
Knowing that I have been heard,
And now he will take care of the rest.
One dark night I drifted away in woods.
Searching for answers to many questions
I believe one should.
Then I came inside a dark tunnel,
With darkness everywhere and no where to go.
I heard a voice in there from somewhere.
I asked the voice to help me where to go.
The voice then said to me,
Follow your heart as darkness is just an illusion.
Have hope as hope shreds the fear away.
Speak the truth as truth casts courage.
Above all never give up trying,
As great rewards always come in due time.
These are the ultimate answers of all the questions that nature holds.
