Here goes

Asalaam oualekim todas personas,

I joined here under the user Addriana, but I already have a journal going on Miami_shadows, so that's what I'm gonna use from now on. This is my first poem about Islam, so don’t be surprised if it's pretty bad since...hell, I’ve got no experience. My middle name is Addriana and I go by that when I first meet people online, but my first name is Lana</st1:givenname>, and I usually go by that. So if you’ve got time, tell me what you think, insha’allah it won’t be so bad!

 

Escaping

I refuse to be addicted, afflicted to the sickness of the doubt

Of my faith, I believe it

Blood spilt from our veins is blood spilt in vain, while

Those who have an aversion cast aspersion

The searing scars remain

You know that you need to understand

Though it’s difficult to explain

 

Born live die all in three seconds sounds so quick

We’re born to live and die as people live to try

While it has to end anyway

 

Lonely you wander seeking nothing but air

You wander, squandering your cares

As you continue to cry your soul empty

The infinite fear of fears unknown

I wanna save you

You wanna save me

 

Wish they could erase the shame

Wonder and imagination swallowed

Pointing fingers spreading blame

Where the spinning doesn’t stop

 

Once you look around

Your voice is drowned

In ignorant sounds

Make it so that you lose your mind

Half the time

Absorbed in money sex and lies

Disillusioned confused

Our beliefs are abused

When we know right from wrong

Don’t you wanna escape this?

Where people give us strange looks and mistake us

For criminals and terrorists

Take us to a place

Where we scream and we pray for a way to stay true

To the one, to Allah

 

A fleeting taste of freedom

For an eternity free from shadow

When logic marries reason and

Takes shelter in the forgotten

 

Others follow with blind faith

But I can’t be distracted

I gotta stay straight

If I believe that I love you

Does that make it true?

I know that I don’t have the time to wait

 

But Allah is the breathe that saves us from suffocation

In a world where those who are intoxicated with temptation

Fall quickly into frustration and disaster

So falling flailing you come here

You can see what you are lacking so strongly

Allah gives us the need to need something else

Insanely screaming the woes of the world

Anguish; we need the release of it

 

So while your fear is in plain sight

Don’t hide it

Or it will devour you

Knock the heart out of you

Beat the breathe out of you

Shake the will out of you

Burn the shame into your skin like a scar

That bleeds everyday in spite of the memory

That tries to heal

So as you cry

As you’re screaming, why?

Remember to forget selling the truth

Exchanging the purity

Designing an imitation of perfection

For the colors lost among the blind

The sounds vanished among the deaf

As the sky melts into the sea

As the hate melts into the love

As innocence shivers in the frigid air

As we all disappear

Dissolving

Into the frozen atmosphere when

Deep in darkness, suddenly conscious!

And all

That is

There is

Allah.
