I Found What I Am

I finally found what I am
A corpse of tomorrow
Shrouded in a white cloth

I finally found what I am
A life that has to die

So what am I boasting about?
what?
money, power and fame
strength, beauty and authority
or the relationships in the world
Am I proud of these thing
These lies
which will depart me soon
A dead leaves without them

nothing is absolute that I see
as evident from the past
where are they who came before me
I got carried away in the lights of the world
I forgot who I was
I deceived my eyes
in the lies
I never realized my existence
I sinned, out of my ignorance
As I never realized
I also have to die

I turn to you
O Allah!
….to be continued

SUBMISSION

We keep telling for the time to come
forgetting the oblivious nature of life
dreams we see and scenes we imagine
at the end of the day is just our fantasy
Do we really know what will happen?
In the coming bloom and gloom
just hidden is beauty in the contrast
between the day and the days to come
Have you not ever been amazed and surprised
at your existence?
At the graves and new ones in the wombs
We are also gradually inclining to the soil

You plan and HE plans
and HE is the best of planners
can’t escape the destiny
yours is only the choice
to make
or to break
the life after this life
earth will never settle
nor her folks
they only rest till death
but remaining forgetful during their days
ignorant of the fact
nothing you take while you leave
and the world forgets you soon
wealth only changes hands
power only the shoulders
but making blind of the truth
they never remain permanent
humans should know
they are not the rulers of the world
nor is their pride bigger than the heavens
if they could only realize from where they come
two impure drops
this is their existence
You still don’t know the absolute
unseen could be more prominent than what is seen
so live in a state of submission
