How do we stay on the path of guidance on a daily basis? As much as we try, our efforts seem to fall short and eventually neglect overcomes our wishes to become better believers.
I awake with the thought of worship
another day, another chance to grow
Another day to strive to get closer
Another day to repel my desires.
As I walk out the door, the fire is fueled within my heart
As the day starts, as I go about my norms, it weakens
The people around me, though not to blame, influence my thoughts
My surroundings cage in around me
And I fall asleep as I walk, talk, think
A sudden remembrance I feel,
I realize yet again I fell into this trap, of neglect
I realize yet again I have forgotten.
So easy it is to trip and to fall
So difficult it seems to always stay at focus
But I am forever thankful
I thank Him for He reminds me daily
I thank Him, as there is no one else to thank for all I have
And yet the cycle continues, and I hope that one day it would be straight
All the way to the path of guidance and Eimaan.
