Thank You Lord For Creating Me! - Poem by The Ashraf Sheikh
My head bows before thee and none else,
My soul reaches out for your assistance,
Thank you lord for creating me,
Thank you lord for your assurance,
Thank you lord for now I am aware,
About my importance and flair,
What on earth was I doing?
For these past long years
One in six billion was I
Just see where I stood
Always craving for more
Remove me from the race
And the calculation becomes so obscure
O Lord! People used to tell me
‘Boy you don’t understand the world’
Then I replied to them …
“I understand it very well,
But alas! It never understood me for sure”!
They told-“you will end up nowhere with your passion”
And I denied this too
But surprisingly I landed up nowhere!
And when I was in this nowhere place
I found you my Lord
Thus ending up my utopian quest
I was so reckless, so ungrateful,
I could never see
All the things you had in this world for me
The pillar less sky, the vagrant cloud
The earth to walk upon
The mystic wind roaring aloud
And the birds exquisite song.
Water to quench my thirst,
Wisdom to bring me across,
For me you were
A shed in the dreary desert storm,
A bridge upon the river to cross
Lord I owe you plenty of debts,
Pardon me please if I can’t pay them off! ! ! !
