What's Mine? - Poem by Abdulrazak Aralimatti

What's mine?
Let me define.
Is it my looks?
But its God's fabrication.
Is it my brain power?
But its Lord's shower.
Is it my wealth?
But its under threat of decrease.
Is it my health?
But what's in old age?

Then what's mine and only mine?
That is good and fine.

Its my patience,
Mine and only mine.
Its my modesty,
Mine and only mine.
Its my sacrifice,
Mine and only mine.
Its my honesty,
Mine and only mine.
Its my compassion,
Mine and only mine.
Its my humility,
Mine and only mine.

Its mine and only mine,
Not of any human being,
Not of any angel,
Nor of God, The Almighty Lord,
Its mine and only mine,
Just mine and mine.

    God has bestowed His gifts as He has seen fit. We must walk true before Him for every man will give an account of himself to God. Thank you for contributing this thought provoking poem. (Report) Reply

    We are here for only a time to partake of each other and pull from each other in the most positive light. We build the soul and bring it to maturity, then we move on. We own nothing but our soul, all else is borrowed for a time, even our bodies.
    Well written Abdulrazak. Thank you very much

    Lovely poem. God's gift are many. Some short term and transitory, some everlasting. All shine through in a defining moment of poetic imagery. (Report) Reply

    The recognition of the self and to realise one's own true nature is to reach God.
    Your powerful knowledge of the self and the goal of life is your greatest asset.
    May God bless you!

    sir, you must add these two lines-
    It's my wisdom,
    Mine and only mine.
    because you must be a very wise person to write a thoughtful poem like this.
