After a day of slights and snubs
I crave for a moment of solitude.
On a park swing;
I push against the grassy turf
And look up at the full moon,
Veiled behind the dark clouds.
And the sweet smelling night air
ringing with muted cheers from behind the knot of trees
reminding me of outings long passed.
I smile as I push against the grassy turf,
after a day of slights and snubs
savouring the joy in solitude.
After a day of failed expectations and disappointments
I crave for a moment of contentment,
To make up for time lost.
For deeds that bolster the soul and
sakeenah that comforts the heart,
After a confiding cry.
To muster ihsaan
and do better today.
Meet the world with good,
Pull through one good word for a bad;
All the while,
cradling in the heart that precious moment of solitude.
