I OW(n)E

“with every imaginative burst

the crowd i have coerced

underlies the lifeline.”

All goodness comes from Allah, all evil comes from my Ego and Shaytan.

I own nothing in this world – I owe.

soliloquy i used to be

“winds caustic whisper 
a malleable soul times three
not the monologue
(earth used to be)”

whispers of the accursed one overcome you in ways subliminal,

Death times three: out of earth, in the grave and after The Day or Regret.

Your body lifeless, vulnerable – malleable to One Omnipresent.

“In front of such a one is Hell, and he is given, for drink, boiling fetid water. Death will come to him from every side, yet he will not die; and in front of him will be a chastisement unrelenting” (14:16-17) 


“The breeze you yearn
Stress coagulates your veins
As my heart pumps – willingly”
~ zaahida

There’s a certain inner-peace and contentment the person who believes in a Higher Power feels that some may never get to feel. A breeze within, knowing that your heart is with Him.

Their heart stresses constantly, living with uncertainty. 

Yet the believer’s heart pumps blood throughout the soul, doing as it should – knowing that it’s safe  with the  Creator of all hearts. 

the charity-case

“As the soil begs for moisture – just enough to suffice the roots
As the roots plead for minerals – just enough to sprout the green
As the green offers oxygen
              The human coughs out what the plant welcomes in.”

~ zaahida

Humans breathe out Carbon Dioxide which plants absorb in to provide Oxygen to the air.

What little thanks we give to those who love to share.


“A corroding leaf
An intangible sign of existence protrudes below
A shadow – prostrating. “

“Have they not considered what things Allah has created? – How their shadows turn round, from the right and the left, prostrating themselves to Allah, and that in the humblest manner” ~ 16:48
