The Essence

Another Ramadan’s gone and over,
But have we found the four-leafed clover?
Long hot days of hunger and thirst,
With longing for food till we burst,
Has it changed our minds? Molded our desires?
Has it been enough to calm down our fires?
Have we repented sincerely for salvation?
Have we directed properly our oration?
Do we feel what Allah wants us to feel?
Or are we just craving that afternoon meal?
Fasting is to be patient, to stay silent,
To ponder over the deeds that I sent,
It’s time to get those good grades,
Catch the goodness before it fades,
It seeks to teach tolerance and peace,
But we only seem to think of the evening feast,
It’s a time to make dua, take Allah’s hand,
And work towards achieving brotherhood in the land,
Ramadan’s almost over and gone,
But has our switch to Allah stayed on?
This time it’s been tough, especially cruel,
We weren’t prepared when challenged to this duel,
So give another push, one more is all we need,
To help crack that deeply dug seed,
It’s not hopeless, not just yet,
But we’ve got to do more than just worry and fret,
So if you haven’t made use of Ramadan this time,
Don’t worry, there’s still time to reach out to the Sublime,
Walk to Him, He’ll come running to you,
All you have to do is stay through,
He’s always looking out for us all,
Waiting for us to make that call,
Don’t despair; you’re valuable time is yet remaining,
He could still send His help raining,
Although Ramadan’s almost over and done,
We still have time to become one.
