My Life In Salford - Poem by Mohammed Al Daqs

I never forgot my family while on board,
It is my study that brought me abroad.
At midnight, I arrived safely in Salford,
All the way long the plane roared.
Every help the people happily afford,
My room was in a beautiful ward.
In my class, I was often the only lord,
‘Cause in my exams I highly scored.
And for my insights I was adored,
To tell you this, I kept all my record.
With mates, it is my way to accord,
And my friend’s faults, I often ignored.
At times, I felt a little bit bored,
But hope inside is always stored.
Time passed as it was ignored,
With fear of Allah, my tears poured.
To be back home, I implored,
My family, joy, and life to be restored.
It is love for study I always hoard,
Much here I learnt and explored.
My English is now underscored,
By Allah’s help, my MA is the best reward.
