Faith - Poem by fathima wasti

I had feeling I was incomplete,
When I smiled I felt I cheat.
It’s not that I was sad or doleful,
I was happy but not peaceful.
There was something missing from me,
I had a locked door and a lost key.
Success did not appease me anymore,
Something else my heart wanted to explore.
Failure did not distress me,
I was unheeding and perfunctory.
My heart would burn with desire,
And there was something I required.
I felt lost in a friendly crowd,
I heard a voice but it was not loud.
Kindness and compassion were moments of relief,
Charity gave a joy so brief.
It was not beauty, fame or wealth
It belonged to the soul and could not be stealth
It brought more than pleasure and felicity
It brought me contentment and serenity
In my heart there was an empty void
I was restless till it was truly occupied
It was a bond so strong so intense
Everything in life suddenly made sense
I found it before I was too late
It was my God! It was my faith!
