The New Treader
Establish me O Lord. That I shall follow. For my spirit is in great danger. For the Jinn knows me all to well. Protect me from myself, least I take refuge in your grace. For I am a believer on a journey; with Jinn in my ear trying to tame my footsteps. Lead me Allah to a place where there are others like me that I may be replenished. Have mercy upon us so our burdens are made lighter. Send forth your words in our ummah to LEAD a helping hand for those along the way. Establish me O Lord, that my spirit may be tamed by only YOU; for you know me all to well.

The intertwining of the two. Odd shaped, packaged for the damaged, but embraced by You. Hearts of alike, flowers blooming through. They never forget to say “I love you”. Springed forth by the melody of strings. Summoned by Allah Himself. Twinkled into the lines, memorized by time. The stages of ages; a decade of love. Sync into You.
The rose growing from the street. The beast covered in beauty. They are meant to be. Connected by the Violin strings, grasp by the beauty within. They are connected in more ways than a few. Torn by the world, torch in freedom. Finalized in the delicacy of passion; for lust was never their destiny. For it was Fate sketched in the glorious horizon of their hearts. She is his morning glory. And he is her secret miracle. They paired to be the perfect, unperfect. Designed; created, and gifted from the Most High “la ilaha illallah-There is no deity but God. For it was He that destin them to be, meant to be. Sketched together in the artist’s canvas, blossomed in the colors for all to see.
