    'A Talk with the Self'



    I wanted to share this poem with everyone that a friend emailed to me.
    Every line will make you stop and think...
    It might have been already been put on here.

    Could someone please tell me who wrote it...





    A Talk with the Self


    Oh my self what will calm you?
    Can’t you remain patient for a day or two?
    I try to contain you but your strength overpowers
    But when we die life will seem like hours
    So can’t you be patient for part of a day?
    And remain steadfast upon the straight way?
    The direction you’re taking leads to my worst fears
    Of the day we stand for fifty thousand years
    No one will joke nor talk nor smile
    And the sun from our heads will be at a mile
    Nowhere to hide and nowhere to flee
    Standing for what seems an eternity
    Then the judgment begins and the books will land
    Either on your right or your left hand
    Oh my self …
    Do not become like those who left the right track
    And put their left hands behind their back
    Oh self how do you plan to cross the sirat suspended in the air?
    Craftier than a fox, sharper than a sword and thinner than a hair?
    How do you plan to cross?
    Or will you cross at all?
    The blink of an eye? Run?
    Or would you rather crawl?
    The bad deeds you command will drop you from it
    And only good deeds put you back upon it
    Oh self it’s a five hundred year-drop suspension
    Over a terrible place I’d rather not mention
    Oh self… Do not be fooled by this world and its illusions
    And keep in mind judgment, the grave and other conclusions
    Oh self wake up! Don’t follow your desire
    And ask for forgiveness to avoid the fire
    Oh self keep the commands and avoid prohibitions
    And pay close attention to these admonitions
    Be amongst those who were the best of planners
    Who prepared for the future with good deeds and good manners
    Oh self it simply about your control
    Being patient now so as to reach your goal
    I don’t mean to put a burden, or put much stress
    Just to warn of a day when the limbs confess
    Sins add up as you live through the years
    Then sadness won’t save you and nor will the tears
    Every time you sin the Shaytan is winning
    So remember the One against Whom you’re sinning
    Oh my self… Life is short and ends when you least expect it
    And then what will you say when you’re resurrected?
    The angel of death overlooked you and took the souls of your brothers
    And one day he’ll come to you and overlook others
    For great rewards plant the righteous seeds Oh Allah,
    I seek refuge from the evil of my self and from the evil of my deeds.

    I always come back to this poem when i've had a rough day or when i'm feeling sorry for myself or whatever...

    "The angel of death overlooked you and took the souls of your brothers
    And one day he’ll come to you and overlook others"


    Subhan Allah

    Props. Very intellectual and well rounded up.

    The vast darkness behind it adds a nice spice to it.
    I still read it with a grain of salt.

    Makes me hopeful. Thank you.

    to the author, this was brilliant! Subhan'Allah.
    Though I could be wrong, I think it is by a person named Kamal El Mekkhi
