Life is a Short Journey

Life is a Short Journey By: Majed Dodeen ************************ Our destiny rules over us, even when we are not yet aware of it. The future makes laws for us today. Friedrich Nietzsche ********************************* Life is a journey Short span of time Full of ups and downs We cross its path towards our destination From station to station From birth to death Predestined steps we are to walk Predetermined walks we choose to take On the train or ship of life A trip, a tour or a voyage May amaze, surprise or shock us May delight, please or motivate us May carry deep changes May involve profound fluctuations May hide unforeseen surprises Don't let the obstacles of life frustrate your spirit Not even for a moment Don't be sad over matters that you fail to get Be optimistic of what the future holds for you Live each day as if it's your last Thank Allah through thick and thin Be grateful in good times as well as in bad times Time goes on Life goes on Heartbeats stop one day The devotee soul will knock and penetrate the gates of the sky Ascending so high Carried by angels of mercy How beautiful is the meeting With the Creator and the Maker Of Heaven and Earth. Enjoying the life of those holy and pious A journey of joy and glad tidings In life, there are scopes and places For the believers The workers The obedient The humble Those who reflect Males and females Those who contemplate Those who guard their chastity Those who remember Allah much with their hearts and tongues Those who deserve forgiveness and great reward in Paradise ************************* Regardle ss of toil, suffering or hardships Go on with your aptitude and attitude March towards the high altitude Life is made of tide Rises and falls The unseen is a book guarded by our Lord We read its pages now and then over years The winner uses every single second of this opportunity Be satisfied and gratified Accept what the Almighty allotted and decreed Put on smiles of contentment on face and lips
