Walking towards You

It took me a while to start walking towards You

I took too many stops in the beginning

Got too side tracked ya Rabb

And all these stops did was break me

I got caught up in so much futility

Exterior compositions

Titles denoting achievement

Acceptances from a few who I thought could offer me so much

What served as means to get closer to You became destinations in themselves

But You are the only true destination Allah

The reality of my existence

It took me a while to start walking towards You

I’m stumbling every now and then

I feel pain when I look back and glance at all my detours

But it’s the past ya Rabb

Forgive me for it

Accept me for what I want to become

One who is caught up in your love

A love that is pure, without any conditions whatsoever

A love that is basically what You created my heart for holding

A love that frees and nourishes instead of chaining and destroying

A love that is a response to the yearning I have felt for so long

It took me a while to start walking towards You

And this time I don’t want to take any stops

I want it to be all about You know

My heart is tired

It’s been a constant battle pleasing Your creation

It’s time I felt peace

It’s time I became Yours
