There It Was

About a year ago, I expressed myself through poetry and other written pieces that illustrated my love for God Almighty. I shared my experiences, my emotions, my desires, and my thoughts through these passages after reverting to Islam. Yes, I am indeed a Muslim; born and raised.

The Ship That Never Sinks

As a child I heard something that stuck with me throughout my lifetime. It never really hit me until recently but it is still worth sharing… “What ship never sinks?

I notice the long and dedicated hours she spends in the kitchen before a big gathering, I notice the … Continue reading A Blessing Herself

A Snowfall’s Charm

I have always wondered if I am being too silly, too silly when I smile whilst walking through the snow, too silly when I stand still and allow the snowflakes to pile upon my jacket, too silly when I enjoy the soft landing of snowflakes against my skin, too silly when I gaze up high in the sky and witness nothing but white clouds and delicate white crystals falling towards the earth… … Continue reading A Snowfall’s Charm
