A Beautiful Nightmare

It’s was all dark.. All i could see was pitch black

My whole body started shaking, i felt the tiny creatures crawling under my back

My face started to shiver
As one sweating in deadly fever
I tried to reach my hands out but i was blocked
In this sand-filled cover of mine, i was locked
Gradually sinking, Six feet deep down,
Screaming for help but no one hearing a sound
Crying and crying out loud
Still hoping maybe someone might hear me out
But nothing. I was dead and gone for good
Left my family, friends, and my neighborhood
I was in the wrong
Never did nothing never got along,
With my family
It was always about me, my friends and even my enemies
Never prayed even one salaah
Never made dhikr, didnt obey Allah
Snuck with my friends behind my parents back and
Didnt focus on anything just always slacking
Thinking of each flashback running through my head
I started to scream, “i wish i wasn’t dead!”
Regretting each moment that i didnt thank Allah for
Why did i have to be amongst the wrong doers?
Minutes passed by, i started feeling the grave push in squeezing my ribs
I couldn’t breathe no more, i started to feel the tear in my hips
Crying and crying thinking about everything that i have done wrong
But why am i wasting my tears now? Its all left in the past, its all gone
As i started to feel the darkness getting closer.. I woke up and screamed
Thank Allah this was all just a dream,
Yes, a beautiful nightmare, only cuz it taught me a lesson
From now on its deen over dunyah cause islam is a blessing
To know that one day you will live for eternity
In a life full of peace, beauty and tranquility
This world is nothing but a confusion
A temporary illusion
Were so attached to it that we’ve been putting in our own contributions
Like this music that we’ve been rapping along to
Some kinda game that we’ve been playing along to
These signs are so clear, right infront of our eyes
Yet the truth somehow comes out missing and we can’t realize
These are all of shaytans lies
He’s fooling you
Simply confusing you
Push him out of your life and pray to Allah
Take all your worries out by making Du’a
’cause why wish upon the star when you can pray to its creator
Allah, only He is our Sustainer
So just remember that today the soil is beneath you, but tomorrow it may be above you. You might or might not live for long, so just pray before you are prayed upon.
