Treasure Island

Abdulrasheed Dawodu


Tranquil Heart


Mine is a curious heart
And what does it crave?
Tranquility it is yet to find
For how long can it wait?
A day? A year or a decade?

What has become of my soul?
Starved, malnourished or disowned?
So lean, so weak so pale
And what feed does it take?
Why am I so clueless?
Yet I grieve in my silence

Only to learn tranquility rests
In HIS remembrance
The very basis of my existence
'Verily in the remembrance
Of Allah do the hearts find rest'

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
