I don't think we realize
When we look into each other's eyes
This may be the last time
We'll see each other on the living line
Not knowing when we drop
Our heartbeats just stop
Kanye's words resounding in our heads
Saying we "drop and then flop"
Wondering where we're heading next
Remembering words of Malcolm X
Repeating the only verse of the Qur'an we know
Keep reminding ourselves not to let go
Trying to get out of this nightmare
Trying to catch our last breath of air
"Did I even pray this morning?"
"Will this all be over? Is this a warning?"
"Allah, please, ONE MORE CHANCE!"
"I knew I shouldn't have taken that dance"
If we'd listen to the words of Muhammad and other prophets
Maybe it wouldn't take us an hour to pick out our daily outfits
But spending that hour reading Qur'an
Maybe our lives wouldn't be as close to done
But now it's too late
I don't know where I'm going, so I shall wait
As the temperature rises in the atmosphere
I realize, I'm soon to disappear
Remembering all the things we've done in our lifetime
It all looks like a war crime
"Oh Allah, I will do anything to get my life ba-"
...Just then I awaken
Still alive, wondering how I could've forsaken
Crying, smiling, frowning, jumping, yelling, singing
Being a hypocritical being
"THANK YOU ALLAH! I LOVE YOU! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY!
I SHALL LIVE MY LIFE TO OBEY!"
Allah is the most Merciful
We'll never find ANYONE as wonderful
Forgiving and helping us out
The last thing you want to die with is a doubt
Just remember, Allah is always there
Turn to him because he's always fair
Wrote that when I was in 6th grade so if it's not impressive, you know why. I added the Kanye part though...I don't know, it sounded better to me (?)
