Why does my heart still beat?

Why does my breathing persist?

I’ve lost my everything in life;

Then, why do I still exist?

Life’s tribulations seem too hard to bear

And there’s not a soul with whom I’d share

This intimidating burden, unfair

Lest they too plunge into despair.

A tiny voice within me squeaks;

In a soothing tone, these words she speaks:

“Listen, my dear, don’t weep and moan.

Take heart, my dear, you’re not alone.

Allah, your Lord, is the answer to your woes..

He is your Saviour from all foes.

Call on Him to lighten your load,

Implore Him to show you the Road

That leads to Him and the Promised Abode.”
