To the young woman who covers,
Who is taunted and teased,
Whose peers she discovers,
Are never satisfied or pleased;
I want you to know,
That when you feel burdened and displeased,
And everything in life seems to be at a low,
That you are not the one who is diseased,
And that the negative thoughts you should plow,
For they do not deserve to be increased.
They say that “when the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in the perfect position to pray.”
So turn to your Creator and don’t be led astray,
In the darkness- in your mother’s womb,
Who is it that fed you?
And in the darkness of the tomb,
Who is it that can save you?
In every decision you make,
When everything is at stake,
Remember the One who has kept you awake,
Who forgave your mistakes and gave you a break,
Who mended the broken pieces from your heartbreak.
Remember it is He who has given you a life,
An opportunity that the dead wish for in the afterlife,
Temptations are trials that can take away our drive,
But in this life we must continue to strive.
Don’t lose focus of your goal,
And let your focus be on the akhirah as a whole.
