Watching helplessly as the darkness engulfed,
Shrouding me as though I were to be handcuffed!
Quivering in the bitter cold I looked around,
Tiny sense of hope within me holding me profound!
Eyes fell on that tiny spot of light,
Far beyond my reach to my plight!
Regardless I stumbled and crawled through the dust,
To capture that light for my soul to rest!
With bruises and a hollow soul I finally arrived,
Tired yet thrilled, into the light I dived!
With efforts so hard I stood upright,
Enjoying the spot light with delight!
Letting the light enter my heart and soul,
Relief and happiness beginning to unroll!
Alas, the light decided to take a stroll,
Once again leaving me alone in the dark hole!
Chasing it with all my might I began,
All in vain, I sat defeated without a plan!
Tears rolling down my cheeks so pale,
Leaving my soul to let out the pain!
It struck me like a thunder so swift,
Why not ask my Lord via His gift?
The gift of Salah He guaranteed to relieve,
In my prostrations, relief within my heart began to weave!
As I ended and raised my hands above,
I saw the same light shine above me somehow!
Leaving my worries and fears to The One above,
I smiled and flew in the light bestowed, like a dove!
