Every single day is a struggle,
With my soul,
Against the temptations of this world.
I seek to be sincere,
But my sins only increase my fear.
The resolve to do good and leave the bad,
In some corner of my mind is buried,
And the fear of falling into sin keeps me worried.
I want to get rid of my sins,
I want to repent.
Flying free with pious wings;
I want my faith to deepen.
I wish it would just take a swish of a wand,
To get me over my sins as huge as a mount.
Then the attire of taqwa would I don,
And wear ikhlas around my head like a princess’ crown.
But it isn’t a fairytale,
Nor a world of magic.
Rather, it’s something so great with a guarantee not to fail,
with an assurance so very lucid.
God’s forgiveness to one who sincerely repents is assured.
As He is the All Forgiving Merciful Lord,
That every believer will stand tall and proud,
On judgement day, amidst so huge a crowd,
Of having all sins forgiven.
All it cost was a sincere repentance,
Good works and words,
“my Lord I seek forgiveness, and I return,
To You, take me away from my sins,
Because that is what my heart truly seeks.”
