A Soul's Endeavour - Poem by Humera Sultana
As I lay dying
My contrite heart crying
Tears with hope glimmer
As the river of life shimmers
Hands too weak to pray
Heart in prostration lay.
A sinful ship my eyes behold
That on the stream of life floats
Laden with transgressions
Its sails unfurl my confessions
Dives in dark waves of repentance
Bounces up, on its acceptance.
Holding the bars of its prison
Soul smiles with a hopeful reason
And I see how my ship of sins
In the sea of God’s mercy sinks
Soul twirled in ecstasy
Ready to take a leap into eternity!
