I love mornings.

Sunlight is like life.

The skies might not be clear but they hang differently.

The clock never lies but it seems to slow down.

My body might be tired but something pulls it along.

The grass is so green.

Somehow everything is sharped and focused.

The air tastes of music.

And before i know it it’s noon.

The day is half gone.

Very soon it will get late.

And all that beauty will fade.

I am sad.

Until the late night greets me.

And I am at peace in its stillness.

But I should sleep so I don’t wake late tomorrow.

That would mean missing the morning and I actually really love LOVE mornings.

I wish I knew how to truly love. To declare, through my thoughts and actions, that I love someone, and when people see or hear it, they’d believe it and feel it.

I want to be so in love that I cannot do anything that I knew would displease or sadden the one whom I love.

I want to feel a yearning and ache in my heart so strong that nothing in this world can truly pacify me, that there will always be a gaping hole in my heart.

I want to feel what they felt, when they put their lives on the line in the blink of an eye. When they gave up everything they had for God and His Messenger.

I want for him to at least recognize me when he sees me, and if he smiles then I’d melt.

I want to behave in a way that is appropriate to all the blessings and mercy that He has shown me.

I want to be amongst those who are gathered with him, because he is the door that leads to The Most Merciful.

I want so much, but… what have I given?

Please soften this black heart of mine so that I can feel love, so that I can act with love, and be amongst those whom You love.



Have you ever wondered
What it is you’ll find
When you open up the gates
And look inside a mind?

Is it thoughts in rivers
And things that make you wise
Perhaps smoke and mirrors
And nothing very nice 

Honestly I don’t know
Cos I have never tried
But if you ever do so
I’ll be there by your side



I got up to leave when this fella came up to me.

“Hey man, how you doing?” he asked.

“I’m great man, thanks for asking,”

Clearly it must’ve shown on my face that I didn’t know this guy, and was just replying out of courtesy.

“Don’t you remember me man?”
“I’m sorry, no. Where did we meet?”
“Duuuuude how can you not recognise me?! Aw man that’s just cold… I can’t believe it! After all those years man…”

Don’t waste my time.

“Look, are you gonna just stand there and feel sorry for yourself or are you gonna remind me of how we know each other,” I said, firmly but not angrily.

“Okay yeah chill. We went to the army together,”

“I was never in the army. Looks like you got the wrong guy, man. Haha!”
“Wait no, seriously? You’re Umar, right?”
“Yeah no, I’m definitely not Umar. Like I said, you got the wrong guy. I’m gonna go now, you have a nice day alright. And stop being such a whiner,” I said as I flashed a big smile and turned to leave.



“Tell me about the best day of your life,”

“The best day of my life… Is tomorrow. Every day just keeps getting better, y’know?”
