Reborn Poem by Omer Shahid


Too long have I been afraid;
Too long have I lived in the darkness!
Too long have I followed what others say because my words don't matter to them!
But NOT anymore;
Today, I stand;
Today, I pray to Allah to give me light so that I may lighten up this darkness around me.
Today, I follow what Allah says and MAKE them hear me!
It's now or never!
Today, I find myself!
Today, I discover the reason of my existence!
Today, I submit my will to the ONE who created me!
Today, I get reborn!
Today, I become a true Muslim!
