Sometimes I wish I was blind,
So I could only see the inner beauty of others.
Sometimes I wish I couldn't speak,
Because ever so often I speak without thinking it through.
Sometimes I wish I couldn't hear,
As gossip and profanity have desensitised my very being.
Sometimes I wish I couldn't walk,
For maybe only then I'd use my freedom more wisely.
Sometimes I wish I wasn't loved,
For love can make me selfish and ungrateful,
Sometimes I wish I didn't have knowledge,
Because I don't want to be arrogant and self-righteous.
But God has given me everything and more as He believes in me. Somehow He trusts that I will appreciate His blessings and use them wisely. For that reason I am humbled because nothing I have is truly mine... everything I have accomplished was made possible because He made it be.. Kun fayakun.
Qur'an 36:82 Verily, when He intends a thing, His command is “Be” and it is!
All that I have today is an amanah (responsibility) and I am always so quick to forget that.
