I wonder what it’s like
To taste the sweetness of faith
I’m baring my heart
To you, telling it like it is.
A little afraid
You won’t trust me, but really
We were once together, got separated
Now I want you back, I want to be me.
I’ve always hidden my true feelings
Kept you away
Never understood what I was losing
Thought everything was okay.
Blindly trusted this dunya
So sure that it’d guide me to what I seek
Telling myself I was being clever
But deep down I knew I was only getting weaker.
In delusion, thinking I will reach
My goals if I do what the others did
I heard you preach
But that was just for a second or two
And then I was gone
Lost on a path
Not chosen by the few
I left you behind, it was then that we got separated
But it was your voice in my head that kept reminding me
“We were once together, got separated
Now I want you back, I want to be me.”
I was created to worship God
It’s my sole purpose in life
The fault is mine cause I forgot
Faith is what I need most to survive.
Yes, I want to taste the sweetness of faith
No, it’s not a decision taken in haste
Believe me, I’ve got what it takes.
This is my only chance, I won’t let it go to waste.
So this is a conversation with the nafs meaning the soul and hence the title. 😉 Did you notice the pun there? It’s pretty obvious I know. XD
