Prayer for the Downtrodden
« on: January 30, 2009, 11:21:19 AM »
Lord, God, thou sleepth not
Ye forgeth not, thy grace diminishth not
Nor doth silenth Ye keepth

The enemies of thy people swell
They but strangle thy people well
With rage and fury and pride
Outrageously with fury and pride
They laugh for the tears of thy people
As they bury their children with shroud

Against us they contrive
In secret places and open
Their plots and counsels deep
Into their treachery and Mock

Oh Lord of Strength and Might
With thy whirlwind and flood
With thy chasing tempest flow
Lord, God, fill them with shame in their chase
Asham’d and trouble let them be
Ever confounded and let them die
With troubled departed soul
And still with troubled abandoned corpse be

Then they shall but know
That thou art the most high
And thou the same one
Overall the earth over-rule
A lazy youth is definitely a begging adult! Bata hankalin Dare ka yi suna!: Fas'alu ahalil zikri, inkuntum la ta'alamun!

I like it, Jibo.

@Ibro2g,

Welcome back.
Get to know [and remember] Allah in prosperity & He will know  [and remember] you in adversity.

Thanks, Ibro2g and Muhsin I urge you to take up the challenge and start writing poems.
