Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) – 13

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem.

Wala ‘ana saeadatan Wala ‘ana hazin,

Wala ‘ana Al’hayat, Wala ‘ana Al’mawt,

Eindama tatahidu, ‘ant taerif ma ‘ana,

Eindama tatahidu, sataerif min ‘ana,

**** hunak ‘qbul ****’

Al’sabab Al’wahid, ‘Ana mawjud tawal hdha alwaqt,

Ruwhiun, aindamajat fi habik lil’abd,

Ah Yah Hubun! Yah Habibi!

Nor’ I am happiness, nor’ I am sad,

Nor’ I am life, nor’ I am death,

When you unite, You will know who I am!

I was been there’ before you were,

Only reason, I existed this long,

My soul, merged in your Love forever!

Oh my loved One! Oh my Beloved!

Allah Khair…..

Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem.

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
Micheal Jan 3
Unity seems so far away.
For one reason or another we choose to remain at odds with each other.
Hatred a scar that can seemingly not be healed.
A cancer with so many different causes a cure is impossible.

The race into which one is born has long been a cause for disdain.
Why can something uncontrollable cause a person so much pain?
Generations raised to bear prejudice.
To this day it is for that cause that many still die.

Next to, or rather above lies higher power.
The god or gods one worships has led to many a war.
All believing the others are wrong, none choosing the path of acceptance.
Destined for **** are we all if this pattern continues.

Ironic is hating someone because of who they choose to love.
Yet this reason for hatred is more prevalent than ever.
Even if we all loved the same way it would still be subjective.
Futile as it is, we still choose to squabble over it.

These vices keep us from harmony.
Until we can get past these, division shall persist.

To the racial remarks: we're all one race - the human race. To the discriminant: don't live the lie that you're superior - we're all just human beings. To the stereotypes: silly sayings don't define someone, not even in the slightest. To supporters: seek light and see if what spurs you is worthy or even righteous. To those in denial: Wake up and seek wisdom - may your ignorance wear off. To the independent: families broken are dependents isolated - individuals internally lost. To the prosecutor: if you were victimized, how would you feel? To the victims: voice yourselves - your vulnerability can be used as a virtue. To the impacted parents and children: continue to climb this mountain, and maybe America will consider your cries. To the next generation: sorry my generation, in many ways, has already failed you... To the next generation: do better than us, and by doing so, you'll prevail too...

we don’t fit into each others shoes
but we walked down the path of many hues

different kind of blues

and we found we don’t need to fit inside
we just have to walk, side by side.

Whats their plan
Is it a scam

If we dont we aught to
Was guy fawks right
Crush the parliament
A poem to make people think

There are those who wear masks to hide,
Those who wear masks to show us what they stand for,
to inspire,
to unite,
to define,
to strike fear,
There are those who wear masks to protect themselves.
And there are those who wear masks to protect us all.
Which mask you wear?
We are the human race.
Surely that counts as something.
Stop fighting against each other.
Because by doing that, we are loosing at our own game; life.
We should all be working as one.
Our goal should be to make this world a better place,
lets fight sicknesses, destruction of the planet and things that make the world go down.
Instead of fighting with ourselves.
Because if we all united,
it would help the world go round.
Peace. Not war.
Peter Balkus Oct 2018
Detesting each other,
no love for each other,
but hate.

Yes, money divide us,
but Time will unite us
one day.
Gemma Davies Sep 2018
We will always come together,
We will always stand and fight.
You can never take our spirit,
You do not have the right.
The more you knock us down,
The more we come back fighting.
The more you try to divide us,
The more we are uniting.

Hate Will Never Win.
My poem was lovingly made into a 'Me to You Bear' video:

attach wings to the backs
of me and my brethren
instead of whipping truth
from the cracks of our temple.
the preachings from the center
are supposed to release us
but stakes in our chains
run too deeply . . .

and, here I sit,
locked up in captivity
the prison of my self
it was the truth that kept me down . . .
it is the truth that sets me free . . .

and freedom is key . . .
