Hi ,

not writing a poem. I used to be on naseeb and write poems during 2005-6 (and are on here)and haven't been back since. I was depressed, out of work, and heartbroken. One of the reasons we writis, to release our pain..but alhamdulilah now i am married to a beautiful woman, have been working in the field i wanted to for years and am happy. Just letting anyone who is down, that things do turn around in life, if you have faith in Allah.

To be beautiful is to express joyful gratitude for all that we receive.

He who can quicken the feeling of another to joy or to gratitude, by that much he adds to his own life.

Shak?r (In Arabic, one of the 99 beautiful names of God) denotes appreciation, gratitude or praise for some particular favor.

Respect, gratitude, sincerity, faithfulness, patience, endurance, all these qualities begin to show in the character of that man.

If you do not yet feel that wondrous Divine Presence deep within, then (for the time being) simply strive to allow your life to be centered around great ideals such as loving-kindness, generosity, compassion, gratitude, and joyfulness. Whenever anything else arises, calmly observe whatever has arisen without undue reaction, and return as quickly as possible to embodying those great ideals such as loving-kindness, generosity, compassion, gratitude and joyfulness.

In this simple manner, one can gradually begin to reprogram the sub-conscious mind, and thereby more fully live in harmony with the Divine Presence.

In the face of all the changes which are inevitable, we should take time to notice, and be thankful for, everything in our life which is pleasing and comforting.

Oh, such splendid gifts we are given, and so often we take them for granted, taking little or no notice. To have eyesight, to have arms or legs, to have a friend...
These too shall pass, so take time to rejoice for all that we are privileged to enjoy in the present moment. In some other moment, all of this will be gone. Celebrate, sing your song, dance your dance, and take time in each present moment to offer sincere thoughts of reverence, awe, and gratefulness.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

feelin' wet and heavy like the rain
watchin' leaves blowin' off the trees
ain't it like my heart babe
blown into a million pieces
you try and paste back with your love

Waning blood-burnt-orange moon |
setting on a blue-black sky |
haunting majnun & i |
directions gone awry |
monkey riding a horse |
into that great one-love |
bruised jasmine fragrant the air |
a snare into my own repair

~~~
hot burnt orange sun
blinding bright setting
fast against white sky
aint-it like my heart baby
sinking into the ocean
into that great one-love
haunting majnun and i

~~~
lovin without the expectation of love
ego surrendering ego
freedom abounding in freedom
self discovering itself
thine in awe of the divine

for all we did and didn?t do
for all we had and didn?t have
you never believed i was always into you ?
when i arrived you got ready to leave
my love cage broken free
and suddenly laid waste to my plea

for all we did and didn?t do
for all we had and didn?t have
lovin? you without an expectation of love from you
releasing my peace dove
breaking out of my love cage
for your assuage
you never believed i did it for you
when from your tavern door you bid me adieu

it?s too late now for you to redeem my souls neglect
it?s too late now for me to gaze into your eyes aspect
or to ignite us electrique
left now but with your rose thorn fixed into my cheek
i push it deeper and deeper to embalm
it?s about self discovering itself
it?s about thine in awe of the divine

once your monkey and my horse
journeyed into that great one-love
with a garland of bruised jasmine to fragrant the air
and a snare into my own repair

The thought of you comes to mind..
And within the mind I find..
A world in my imagination fine..
Where abide some lovely friends of mine..

So I envision, and I can see,
Beautiful eyes discovering at me,
With smiles that glow more visibly -
As my friends feel closer to me.
