Stressed

 

Sometimes we just feel like crying

 

Because nothing is going our way

 

We can’t wake up without feeling down

 

We don’t know what to do and we’ve got no idea what to say.

 

We force ourselves to open our eyes and wipe away the tears

 

Unable to find something worth living for, overcome by our innermost fears

 

We think we aren’t good enough to deserve love or friends or life

 

Behind on our work, fighting with family or arguing with husband or wife

 

The time drags on and we’ve just spent it in waste

 

Drowning our sorrows in food and leaving loved ones behind in our haste

 

We pretend to ourselves that we’re busy and we’ve got urgent things to complete

 

When in fact we’re just rushing towards death, falling down in despair and defeat.

 

We fall behind on our worship, that’s if we even remember to pray

 

Hating the fact that we’re so weak, but not knowing any other way

 

We used to read Quran but now we just lose ourselves in despair

 

It’s all become too much to bear and feeling that there’s no one left there to care.

 

Still we try so hard to drag ourselves out of this state

 

Knowing that all we need to do is ask but fearing we’ve left it too late

 

How can we go back to being who we used to be?

 

Trapped so long in this darkness so long it’s become our only reality?

 

We think each day that we’ll change tomorrow

 

Just needing a few more moments to get over this time of sorrow

 

But as always tomorrow comes and goes and we’re just getting worse each time

 

Regret burning in our heart but unable to force our limbs to comply.

 

And the only way we’ll drag ourselves out of the mess we’re buried in so far

 

Is to force ourselves to change right now and forget that tomorrow even exists

 

For by then it could be too late, bringing death or sickness or insanity

 

Realising as we act that Shaytan will keep attacking until our soul at last resists.

 

So we must always be on guard from our enemy within

 

Praying to Allah to protect us from falling into sin

 

Begging to keep us strong though our faith at times is low or high

 

Knowing we’ll all feel stressed at some point no matter how we try to deny.

 

All it takes to bring you clarity is a moment of sincere duaa;

 

He will turn to you, if you turn to Allah…
