Not long ago I came upon a delightful blog filled with the poetry, writings and reflections of a young Muslim American woman. I feel happy whenever I meet young people who are not just creative but who also make a productive use of their time.
So here is a poem by Fida I from thepoetrykorner:
life is not always gonna be great
there might be days
full of laughter and fun
but in one moment things could change
someone can pull your last straw
make you wanna scream
tears run down your face
you want a friend to come
listen to you and understand your feelings
give you a hug and say
everything will be okay.
Life isn’t always be the way you want it to be
we just have to pray and hope
that God will be by our side
every step of the way.
