To make a decision and to stick to it despite the risks attached to it

To see it break before your eyes, deteriorate, demilitarize

To feel the hurt consume your soul, take over your being, take its toll

To weep and scream, curl up and cry, beneath the truth could be a lie

To drop everything you were meant to do. Reverse, break a tradition or two

Break it down, re-evaluate. Start from scratch, is it too late?

You stop. Pray and cry. Seek counsel. An imaan high.

Clarity. It all makes sense now. You didn’t expect it. You take a bow

Before your Lord, the Only, the One. To Him you walk, to you He’ll run.

You’re overwhelmed, consumed by love. You owe it all to the One above

He tried you, He tested you. He gave you more than you’d expect Him to

He stretched you, had faith in you. In His promise did He keep true

Throughout your struggles you fell, you wavered. Of all His creation it was still you He favoured

You complained, you cried, made mistakes, you sighed

He didn’t give up or let you hide. He kept you strong, He knows you tried

The world did what most said it would, it pushed you to your knees. He reassured and picked you up, “with hardship, there is ease”

Another test. Another journey. A better person? You decide. Live this life as a traveller would and Jannah is where you shall reside.
