True faith

One night this week when I was lying in bed
I was thinking of things that people had said
Some called me a liar another a sheep
I was twisting and turning and couldn’t sleep

I felt a single tear rolling down my cheek
It is not easy at all to deal with critique
I should not be crying I should be strong
Because right now I am where I belong

I gave a muffled sob and one last sigh
And to these sorrows I said goodbye
Because I should be happy I know where to go
And I’m sure that’s more than most people know

While thinking about this I did realise
That finding Allah was the greatest prize
I fell asleep at last with a smile on my face
From the tears I had cried no longer a trace

The next morning I awoke and got up to pray
Oh what a good start to another fine day
Whatever they’ll call me I wont feel the pain
And no matter what they’ll try my faith will remain

So I walked out the door head up showing pride
I felt the strength of this faith with every stride
The names I was called I ignored with a smile
And I knew for me this was no longer a trial

I am guided by Allah while others are not
I will pray for them all, I will pray a lot
May they all be guided and find the true faith
So we’ll all walk together on this path long and straight
