Sorry, I'm not a Poet


How I envy the prisoner
Living by rules
Forced to comply
No opportunity for the fallible mind
Or foolish thoughts to govern actions
Weaknesses troubleshot
Taken into account and included in The Plan.

How I pity the free man
Left to his own devices
His whims and desires fighting on the front line
Against practicality, morality, and reason.
Surrounded by rules to pick and choose as he likes
Weaknesses laid bare, open sores to fester and spread
Rotting from the outside in

We have been given free will
But it is the truly gifted of us
Who realize that to be free is to live in a prison
Within the golden bars of compliance
And to be safe is to be a prison
Locking submission firmly inside us.


  1. Alhamdulillah your blog is very beneficial.

    But one disadvantage- having a black background is hurtful to the eye.Please consider changing it.
    Jazakallah Khair

  2. As salaamu alaykum. This is the first time anyone has said anything about the background causing them discomfort. I actually feel that the black background is less glaring and stressful that the white, but Allahu aalim and we are all different. I will ask for some readers' opinions and see whether it the majority feel it's better to change or not, inshaa Allah.

    Barak Allahu feekee wa iyaak.
