Make Me Smile

You know smiling is a Sunnah

It makes life seem a lot funnier

But what makes me smile and laugh

are the people in my life

The moments that are carved in my heart

A new start, the birth of a human heart

The ease in a moment of strife

when things get a little tough

But even in times of hardness and sadness

keep smiling and prevailing

Know that this is a test of patience

This life won’t be smooth sailing

Let’s make each other smile

Its so worthwhile

’cause time is fleeting

so let’s stop fighting

instead extend a warm greeting

File this away for ever,

Let’s smile together.

Station

Sitting in a station

People pass, young and old

Some see their loved ones, full of elation

Some travelling, departing, not arriving, stories untold

I am forgotten, Dust on my name

Passing gravestone after gravestone

They say life is a Game

There are no things that I need to atone – for

For I am young now, let me live life

We do not understand, Age does not matter

99 year old doctor, grandfather

4 year old daughter

A few lines not telling their strife

Of broken bones and broken hearts

Of lost friends and abusive parents

Of a happy life, it felt like eons

Of  the Gold I filled in carts

Everything has left now, hear their steps echoing

The real test has started now

3 Questions deciding, the following

Who is your Lord?

What is your Religion?

Who is your Prophet?

This life like a stone, sticking out of it a sword

Your heart determines your condition

Let the water out and you are set

It is the weapon of Choice.

The Call Of Duty

Do you hear the call?

It takes a high fall, to hear it

Cutting through the blots of darkness

the screen of madness.

The Outsides effects

it beckons you to forget

We muffle the call, with everything we get

Drown it out, in a sea of desires,

I mean regrets.

The bass stifles it, fires the chase

Are you listening to the music? No listen to Me!

Don’t you see, don’t you feel

I’m starving, while you fill your stomach

I lack the strength and you’re stuck

Don’t you hear the call?

Tossing and turning in your bed

Your head full of thoughts,

made out of lead

you are feeling distraught.

 The moon shining bright

shining its light on the hole in your heart

A yearning for more than you have ever experienced,

that  there is more than seems to be seen

than seems to be felt.

But you cannot reach it.

So you try to flick the hole and carry on with your life

 But don’t you hear the call?

Open your heart and open your eyes,

they were locked and sealed with ropes of steel

Open your eyes in the morning hours

its better than sleep and everything that we call ours

Seek Success.

Don’t you hear the call?

Echoing in all the market places of this world

while you are making ends meet,

making the big money,

cheating people out of their money

It tears us apart, the greed for more

Have a valley of Gold? Feel the want for more?

Don’t you hear the call?

Feel the hole tear wider

fill it with women, children and horse powers

By the way that was an insider

Inside of you, don’t you hear that call, inside of you?

The end is near

I see you have forgotten why you are here

Lost in all the world had to offer to you

You drowned me out, ignored me, scoffed at me

This may be your last chance to answer me

Submit to the Lord of the Worlds,

fill the hole,

heal yourself.

The Call of Duty

Next door

Door to the universe

Next door lives a dragon

Next door lives the batman

Next door lives the police

Next door, Next door, Next door

Next door lives a teacher, preparing for his lecture

leaving 7am in the morning

returning late, stressed and underpaid

Next door lives a 5-headed family

with a sick father, a working mother and 3 little children

living on the brink

Next door lives my best friend

known him for ages, through thick and thin

I treasure him.

Next door, Next door, Next door

Next door is a world away

Next door is another reality

Next door is a life lived

Next door, Next door, Next door

A man is not a believer

who fills his stomach while his neighbour

is hungry.

On the Contrary let him who believes in Allah and the last Day

be generous, be kind to his neighbour, who lays

forty houses in front of  him, forty houses behind him

forty houses on the right and forty houses on the left.

Next Door.
