Ungrateful - Poem by Mohammod Choudhury

Bismillahi ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
We feast after fasting
Unleash the beast after basking
In the heat, truly a hard thing
We can be ungrateful and mean when we are starving
Why complain when we are not being co-erced?
People in the Third World dying to quench their first
People in the Third World trying to live on this earth
Fasting without choice everyday since birth
It is crazy we must learn and reflect on life
Be grateful to Our Lord, Our Creator, Our Maker who gave us life
Gave us clean water, food and shelter
While others get slaughtered and their happiness in this dunya deprived
They move with misery and oppression follows
While we enjoy our wealth, possessions and the food we swallow
Think about the pain and sorrow
And pray for a better tomorrow
And spread peace and be the example for us all to follow
Be kind and gentle, don't let the sane mind go mental
Fight and defend all rights to the end
Before you meet the end of your life
A reminder of our death
When the soul departs
And we lay asleep beneath the earthly bed
And our heart out of breath
Truly! That Day we awake will be a day of stress
