Strip away the layers and reveal your soul Got to give yourself up and then you become whole You're a slave to yourself and you don't even know You want to live the fast life but your brain moves slowly If you're trying to stay high then you're bound to stay low You want God but you can't deflate your ego. -Matisyahu [king without a crown]
Asalamu Alakyam. This is what happens, when I’m supposed to be studying for a midterm :).Take a journey into my life, open your eyes and see the beauty magnify. To illuminate the heart and remove its shadows from heedlessness and desires. A place where we don't reach for the stars we reach for the heavons. *34 hours until i'm off to Michigan InshAllah.
-To anyone that feels this is for them...I feel the world at your shoulders, the pressures building up. Rising to the top, your waging war with yourself. Can’t stop, Shaytan constantly weighing you down. Struggling to be free while bound with shackles and chains. You slip up, tripping along the way. Your feet stumbling along the path, hitting ever bump and crack. Desperately fighting for your life, fighting for your soul. At a time when all your “friends” around you are pushing you to the ground. Their faces smiling at you watching you drown. Responding with words that are left empty and meaningless. Appeasing to your ears while their heart is filled with deceit. They spit fire at you when you turn your back. Not knowing they're just picking up your slack. They’re telling you to accept the defeat. To walk around aimlessly in the dark while the deaf follow the blind in a race against time.. You watch the days pass by and yet you still feel the same. Only when you look back you see how dramatically you have changed. Trying not to admit the loneliness, fulfilling it with every temporary fix. Looking for help in all the wrong places. Following your desires just with different faces. Going with the flow, that road taking you to places you never wanted to go. Obliging to ever whim can’t control how fast or slow. A glimmer of light appears and you start to re-evaluate your life. A constant fight in a place filled with fitna everywhere you turn. Thoughts spinning in your head that one day you’re going to have to face the Al-Mighty Rabbi Al-Ameen. Judgment days near when this Dunya will soon fade away. Where eyes will be unveiled and truth will prevail. When regret is the only thing you’ll feel. Your begging and pleading if you could only come back for a day and change your ways. The ways you used to take pride in, in those jahellia days. Only if you could see what I see, maybe things wouldn’t be the same? You would abandon those friends and walk away. Start making those first step’s towards Allah on the straight a way.
