My Utopia


Awakening from darkness I embark on my journey
The drought of this soul longs ardent inspection
Serene truths mirrored in life tell my story
In radiant shadows I now know Allah's reflection.

Such beauty from within me
Your truth believed
Conviction met in loving others fills this heart
It's the love we are giving not love we have received
Allah in his patience grants me this new start.

Visions of love and forgiving spirit calms the soul
Surrender to love brings awareness of softened ills
Voices outside life's door emotions to control
Some plant, some water, but only Allah fulfills.

Acquaintances now friends laughter ascribed
With a heart overwhelmed I am surely at peace
Quiet smiles passionately stir needs deep inside
My Eternal melody set in cast.
Now set at ease.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
