An Emotional Journey Back 
The goal is to live in this world, as if I’m a passing traveler

Between my deen and my dunya, I strive to be a balancer

Put my fate in the one and only, who is the divine handler 
I try my best each day, to remember the Sirat-al-Mustaqim

To fall out of heedlessness, and the illusions of a false dream

I seek only to be sitting in jannah, beside a beautiful stream
Make du’ah every day, to remain on the straight path

To seek Allah’s love, forgiveness, and to fear his wrath

I beg like a child, for all that’s under my wishing cap
Along the way there are times, I may fall in a trap

So I keep close to me, the Holy Qur’an like a strap

Make wudu to cleanse my sins, through a water tap
People are unjust here; they cheat and they deceive 

But I know these are tests from my Lord, that I must receive

So I take a deep breath, and say alhamdu-lillahi-rabbil-alamin
Rumi says there is hidden mercy in suffering

But these painful thoughts; they are hovering

May Allah forgive me, for what I am not covering – Ameen
-Rubbab Chaudhry
