The Islamic Garden
Shine on- Poem
By Selma Cook
People walking past you like they just don’t care
Blinded with no feeling their empty souls laid bare
Despite the pain, the need you keep trudging on and let things be
You watch but can’t believe all the injustice that you see
Don’t be afraid of your light. Your strength. Shine on.
Don’t be afraid to speak out. The truth. Be strong.
Open up your heart show the real you. What you think. What you feel. Carry on.
Your journey is still going. Every step brings you closer to your time. Steady on.
Pour your energy with goodness onto the souls of man
Let your spirit shine reflecting your life’s real plan
It’s your choice each day to choose the wrong or the right
With gentleness, with wisdom you engage in the fight
Change your perception and look into your soul
See the truth, the beauty before life takes its toll
