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! ! ! !
