Repenting Anguish
« on: May 28, 2020, 06:12:00 AM »
Dark are the pathways leading away from You
Cursed are the pitfalls that land people far away from You

You who is the asylum of the sinners seeking forgiveness
You who is the intimate of the lonely strangers
You who is the peace in my hardship
You who is the light in my darkness
You Do I turn to
You do I seek assistance from
In the darkest of hours
In the moments of peril

I've turned your blessings into curses
So much wisdom yet reckless actions
Having landed me in a far away pit
My heart is dark through and through
So who will save me but You

If I lose you
What will remain
And let's say I gain all else
But You
What is it worth?
The Manifest
The Light
The Proof
Who has you, what do they lack
And who lacks you, what do they have

O best reward
O granter of security
Ease my fear
And banish me not

It's You
It's You
That reminded me of the way
It's You
It's You
It's You who I disobeyed
It's You who I was shameless to
It's You who I was bold against
Taking advantage of what I know of your Forbearance
Till the reliance on your compassion
Caused me to perish

It's me
It's me
That didn't accept your help
Turned your blessings to curses

And so if I die lost and away from You
And my deeds have not yet brought me close to you
I make this confession the means towards your proximity

Never again
My promise
If you help me keep my promise
I will do my part
And never again will I purposely disobey You

You who is the cause of my happiness
It's my insolence towards you that is the cause of my sorrow

I live for one thing only
To prove I love you
Who is my goal in life
Forgive me
By the name of God, the (universally) Compassionate, The (extremely) Compassionate; for the unity of the Togetherness; Is their unity in the journey in the winter and summer. So let them Worship the Lord of this household. The one who fed them from hunger and gave them security from fear.

Beautiful poem! You talk for me, and probably many other people, there also!

Repentance themes are my favorite type of poems.

This one was from a while back:

As the Darkness consumes my soul


Dark deeds opened enough gate ways
By which devils wrecked havoc in our soul
The barriers of protection began to break
But through his name
His name which is his word of light brought to life

We remembered
Remembered there in the moments of peril
The one who is the intimate of every lonely stranger
The refuge of every abandoned outcast
The friend of who has no friends
The beloved of those who free their hearts from attachment to what is vain

The heart didn't lose it's beat
But began to fight
Cutting off all other then him
And ready to do battle once more
by the sword of God
Which is his name

Oh God - our shameless sins have distanced us from you
But remembrance of your love and grace has attached us closer to you
We disobeyed and were unjust in our relationship to you

Oh God - as the darkness began to consume
As the soul began to rebel
As the imagination began to search for doubts
And as the chaotic whispers began to create whirlwinds destroying the foundations of who I am

I remembered you therein
As the best helper
So be there
Be there in the hardship
In the intense trial
And help me fight the devils
And win my soul back once and for all

I am the one who was insolent to the Lord of the great throne
I am the one who betrayed your chosen Kings and Guides
I am the one who ruined your favors and turned away from your blessings
I am the one who disobeyed the Guiding Master
I am the one who showed boldness to the Creator of the Universe

Your stars in this sky of this world have not dimmed yet in my soul
I remember the family of the reminder
The recipients of your lights
And awaken to the magic world and sky that connects us all
By the mystic link we are all bound

Oh God Gog and Magog oppress the believers
And cause mischief in the land
They have misguided so many
And turn so many to disbelievers
They plan and you plan
And you are the best of planners
So join me part of your plan
And let me see in the family of Mohammad what they hope
And in their enemies what they fear

Oh God destroy the oppressors
And relieve the oppressed
Like you did in the past
And hasten the deliverance of your people and friends
And hasten the victory and let me be part of it, be my part small or big
Let me be contribute to your victory

My tears are from fear
Thinking of the consequences of ignoring the plight of the oppressed
Wasting my life away in your displeasure
And as the darkness gain sway in me
So does the propaganda of the dark ones gain sway
And here I am
Having done nothing for your service
Yet in irrationally deluding myself heaven is mine

Oh God
If you destroy me I am well deserving of that
And if you deliver me and bring me in the fold of your grace
Then how many times have you done that before
To servants who were even worse states then me
But they turned to you calling you and hoping in you

Oh God
How many servants when the fire of passions
Became high decided to leave your path
But I beg you
As the passions and those animal fires wreak havoc in my soul
To not let me abandon your path of guidance
And lead me back to the pond of your Prophet
And make me die on the creed of Mohamad
The beloved doctor of my heart
And save me through the love of Ali I have so fought for
And hold on to in the darkest moment of peril

No more evil deeds
I am sick of them
My Lord
Free me of them all

I have nothing
Neither this world
Nor the next
Nor You
But Here I am praying
I am asking
I am holding to your handhold in this moment of peril

Make me one who devotes his life to you
And not waste in extravagance and pleasures that will disappear
But rather make me strive in your path
And let me be guided by the means you guide who you guide

As the darkness begins to consume
Trying to make beautiful what is ugly
And make ugly what is beautiful
Confuse me from right and wrong
And seek to make murky what you clarified to me
As the desires call to rebellion
I see my soul crashing away from your straight path
So here I am calling you
Seeking your Help

Give me power from your holy spirit
And Save me by it
