This Might Explain...

Hello readers,


I get no break
I have no escape
except in my thoughts
blocking everything out
and thinking of Allah.

I have no escape
unless I find silence
and stay there

like in nature
seeing, feeling
makes me calm
and helps me find my peace.

In Allah, is my only refuge.

thank you,

Masha'Allah, this is WONDERFUL!!!
Today, my nephews and I had a blue balloon that we wanted to set free in the sky and when we did I kept looking at the balloon as it made it's way up and up and up. . .it was during that moment just looking up at the beautiful sky and seeing how tiny the balloon was getting that I found so much peace and it made me feel so much closer to the Creator. What a lovely moment!

That made me smile. Subhan'Allah! Thank you (-:
This is beautifully written, I have loved reading your poetry since following your blog :)

I was also wondering if you could help me out? I just want to reach out to you and see if you can help vote and promote my competition entry to become a presenter which has been a dream of mine. It would be great if you could help and it only takes 2 seconds. Thank you very much if you do. Here is the link - battlefront. co. uk/competitions/entry/4618/vote

Lovely to read you again Fida - your poem express the true way to find peace in this busy world - getting closer to God is the only place where we can freely breath, knowing we are protected.
Stay well!
