Life is Short

Life is short Too short to read all the poems ever written Talk less of novels and plays This life is too short To listen to all the music ever recorded And certainly too short to watch all the movies ever made This life is too short of me not to think of death Too short for me not to think of my last hour on earth For me not to reflect on how I am living my life I count myself poor and rich Unlucky and so Lucky Unfortunate and so fortunate My heart has run away too many times to count Chasing desire and worldly pleasure Have indulge in forbidden dance I have cheated and stole Tell lies that can wake the dead Sinned a mountain high, I am no saint So is the life have led But still I am fortunate For my faith in Allah is unwavering At a young age have learnt to pray Learnt to ask for forgiveness and leave pride behind I have learnt to fast, to leave all self-desire behind to worship Allah I am lucky For Allah guidance stirs me clear of the worst It stirs me back to me, to all that is good I am rich beyond all measure Cause to Allah I turn to for reward Allah the owner of heaven, earth and everything in between My past is colourful as the rainbow My present a tie rope walk But I have hope and faith in solid future A future where my actions are lead only by the guidance of Allah Where my heart desires are the whispers of the Quran The teaching of my beloved prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) After-all this life is too short to live for So I will live for eternity in Paradise I pray that we all do the same Assalamu Alakum Wa Rahmatulah Wa Barakatuh (Peace, mercy and blessing of Allah (S.W.T) be upon you)
