So where are you going?
~ (The Qur’an 81:26)
There are places to go
and things to do
But can you choose your battles well?
No but destiny will meet you halfway
Like a burglar
with a family of five to feed
Desperate enough to hurt
But never enough to kill
Who knew the ground will conspire to get you down
That you’d be watching your now riderless high horse
All your lesser evils
dragging you to divine abattoirs
vices and all
The one with large meat knives
made of loss and hurt and razor sharp darkness
laying your ego on the butcher’s block
slicing through all that wronged you
All that you wronged
let the abyss it created
flow till the very last drop is out
Now for the spring you must feel
Now for the places you must visit
The truth rallies
Or again the slaughterhouses?
The foot of the Kabah
In no particular order, in no particular order
Eid Al Adha Mubarak everyone!
Just something I wrote recently inspired by the sight of the kaabah during hajj. I don’t realize how badly I want to go until I see the kaabah this time every year and then it feels just…I am sure that’s how every muslim must feel whether they’ve made the hajj or not.
May we be one of the hajjis soon. Ameen
