In a Sentimental Mood

A revolution’s twists and turns

As one fights with what he learns

Detested by who would build his strength into chains

Barred by what he thinks will actually make him free

 

I sympathize with your complaints (I truly do)

But I’ve never seen change without pain

So the world will revolve as it does

It may be, you will stand strong once again

 

Just as leaves fall from autumn’s trees

So do my tears from the change I see

As the earth dies for a time when I sleep

When I rise a new Spring is in reach

 

A lifetime of joys and pains

The hold of tyranny, it finally wanes

In the cries of a slave to his King

To see Peace, in a land For His slaves to remain

 

As the revolution rages on

One’s faith in the cause remains strong

Rejected by who resists change

Freed by the truth his heart believes

 

I recognize your restraint (I truly do)

As things change some things remain the same

So the world will revolve as it does

It may be, we’ll stand strong once again

 

Just as leaves fall from autumn’s trees

So do my tears from the change I see

As I die for a time when I sleep

When I rise a new life is in reach

 

A lifetime of joys and pains

The world has turned once again

And the beauty brought forth in the Spring

Makes me sure of the Grace of my King

Soul Controller

Who can hold a crowd greater than God?

No similitude or metaphor can equal Allah

Any expression of worth has its rest with The Best

While music sounds so alluring I put it to a test

Match it with the shortest Surah does it even compete?

Shattering man’s thought of what he knew as complete

When overwhelming understanding of an overwhelming Presence

Takes precedent make a standing person submit his whole essense

In sujood or prostration like a sailor when he meets sand

Delivered into safety from a force surrounding each land

Encircling us all is The Keeper of All Power

In His Hands is the Dominion

In His Knowledge is the Hour

The EverLiving,

Watching everything, The Oft- Forgiving

So Merciful that even believing is your decision

Not to be taken lightly every choice has a response

And in a world cat calling get whatever you want

It seems like a Catch-22

But I was told if you remember God then God’ll remember you

And if you strive hard, Rewards is in the plan

The devil whisper plenty, avoid him much as you can

And maybe at the time when you took all you can stand

God makes a way for His slaves once again

My man who can hold a crowd greater than God

On the Day of Judgement, on the Day to meet with Allah

On the Day that Hell is brought near bursting with rage

And Jannah is in the sight of Man and for that we pray

Just to enter into Heaven and avoid Hell’s heat

At the gates return Salaams to the Angels we meet.

Lifetimes upon lifetimes so many men passed

I pray that we enter Heaven where we’ll see God at last.
