No words can express my feelings,
No letters can describe my day,
I love you God, from all my heart,
What else can I ever say..?!!!
You've been always beside me,
From the beginning of my life,
You've been always helping me,
And to obey your orders, I shall strive
Long ago, when I was young,
You've been always here beside me,
If I couldn't differentiate between right and wrong,
You'd be always there to help me
Being young, I knew very little,
And was always asking where you were,
But as I grew up, and day by day,
I found that you were always there
I always saw people praying to you,
But why?! I could never understand...
But as I grew older and older,
I found the reason at the end
Whenever I needed something then,
I would directly pray to you,
You'd instantly fulfill my dream,
And make my wish come true
Oh God, What can I say..?!!
You've granted me all what I need...
Love, Happiness, Peace and Health,
Dear Lord, I love you indeed..!!

I've been facing a problem
To define the word "Friend"
Is it something tangible?
That has a beginning and an end?
Does it imply honesty?
Does it mean mutual Love?
Or is it just a word,
That means nothing of the above?
When I was young I thought:
"My friend is the one,
Who sits beside me in class
And helps me get my homework done.
As I grew somewhat older,
I changed my mind a bit,
"My friend is the one who keeps my secrets,
And with whom I can freely sit"
After a little while,
As I became more mature,
What did this word mean to me?
I was not pretty sure.
I thought it meant someone,
Who's always there for you,
In the times when you need her,
Not only when she needs you.
Someone you can easily depend on,
To shuffle all your sorrows away
And also through your happiness she's there,
You feel her presence every single day.
Someone who zaps you,
Back to reality,
When seeing you doing something,
Contradicting your personality.
She doesn't necessarily have to be,
Someone who gives perfect advice,
It's enough being near you when you need to talk,
Which is really something very nice!!
She can listen to you talking all night
Crying about your problems and fears,
Although her heart my be in pain,
And can't find someone to dry its tears.
However stupid your problems are,
She never faces you with this fact.
She listens and listens till you say:
"That's it! There's nothing more than that!"
If one day you were so happy,
And came to talk about
Something exciting that happened to you,
She would join your excitement; Jump and Shout!!
Although she might be in real pain,
Thinking about someone she lost,
She'd never show that to you,
She must join your happiness, she must!!
She can bear you when you're angry
And bear all the painful words you say
Cuz she knows this is not the real you,
Since you don't usually act in this bad way...
In our lives, we all must've met
People whom we thought were friends.
But then we got to know and discover
Their horrible personalities at the end.
However bad this might seem,
It makes us more experienced and strong.
We should learn to choose our friends wisely,
Cuz failing to do so is what's considered wrong.
It's okay to Love everyone you know,
But friend is a very sacred word,
You should select your friends very carefully
Cuz they're really very few people in this world
I've finished all what I have
To say about friendship and friends
Although talking about this issue
Can never ever end.
Now, I'll leave you to answer this question,
Until I find something new:
"Friend, this six-lettered word,
What does it mean to YOU..?!"

Life is a complex mystery
It has happy and sad moments
Full of good and bad people
Sometimes darkness prevails through it
Other times, you see the light at the beginning of each day
Lots of people wear masks on their faces
What you see is not necessarily reality!
What you feel can be misleading!
What you say can backfire on you one day!
So watch closely what you see, feel or say...
In your life, people come and go
Some become close friends
Others are seen every once in a while
And the rest are just "passer-by"s
But there's a pretty good reason that makes them leave or stay
Sometimes with all the friends you have,
You might still feel lonely and sad
You may think no one cares
And that worse events await you
You're afraid to continue in your way
Well...People DO betray!!
And not all of them are angels, you know...
Don't stop caring, loving or living,
Just stop your blind trust for anyone
Not everybody deserves that anyway!!
It hurts, I know, but so...?!!
Don't you think you're strong enough,
To stand back upon your feet,
And be as strong as you once were,
Before you discovered the truth that day?!
Believe me, YOU ARE STRONG!!
Just believe in yourself a little more
You can do it, yes you can! Just try...
You'll find millions of hands to help you
Don't wait for later, Do it now...Never Delay!!
Look around you... Take a closer look...
You DO have a lot of good people around you
Your parents, your siblings, and a few REAL friends
So, they DO exist, don't they?!!
And you know they'll try to help you in any way...
Think positively not negatively...
Be active not passive...
Always help others... Always care...
Don't wait for gratification
And don't expect that everyone would forever stay...
Life constantly separates us from our loved ones
It's destiny...Nothing to do about that!
We can only keep on believing in ourselves
And keep on hoping and praying
For tomorrow to be a better day...
And if you ever feel lonely,
Or even sad, frustrated and confused,
And can't talk about you pains
You know that GOD's always there for you
Read his Qur'an and to him sincerely pray
You'll surely get the answers you need
Because only he understands you without explanation
He's the one who created you, right?!
And he also created this life...
This complex, contradictory, painful and mysterious play!
He knows what you can handle
And what is beyond your capabilities
So, Just trust him, Because if he puts you to it,
He shall definitely help you through it...
So always stick to his straight path and right way...
