People never want You for You:

Standard

Author’s-Note:
I just felt like writing down some thoughts, about how people would rather see others in a false-light, then through an authentic-lens, how they would rather others be fake then to be real. Don’t worry, this poem is not about any particular individual/individuals. So, I don’t want anyone contacting me, questioning, challenging me, as to whether or not I’m takin’ shots at them indirectly. This poem is as Universal as it gets and applies to anyone/everyone, myself, firstly.

Fallacies are more desirable than Realities:

People always chase that false-image, of who & what they want to see…
…But, then, when proven wrong, wonder, “How can this possibly be?!!!”.

You, as the individual, are always depicted by other peoples’ illusions & perceptions…
…However, once you keep yourself true, they don’t want that; they are ever suspicious.

You can never be the true you, without others assuming, dubbing you dishonest…
…They accuse you of the most outlandish things, their attacks can be the coldest.

But, they do not care; for most, it’s exclusively how they want and expect you, to them, to be…
…They don’t want the real you; their constructed illusions, only, are what they want to see see.

They will call you a Liar, only because you don’t fit the criterion of a person that they desire…
…Whenever you don’t follow the script of their liking, they’re ready to cast you into blazing fire.

Whatever skills Allah has given you, use them with much haste…
…The truth of one’s self is precious, don’t ever let it go to waste.

There are many dark forces out here, in this Mundane, who want to drag you down, to shame…
…And, when you’re dead & gone, they’ll pretend to miss you, and they’ll even speak your name.

But, they don’t care: to them, once they’re done with you, you’re just as useless as an Autumn-Leaf flying in the air…
..It’s completely up to you, to stay true to what’s inside you; never let your faith in Allah falter; never sink into despair.

Whenever you feel like the World is on your shoulders, and you have no friends, just remember that I’ve been there…
…But, I found Allah with me, every step of the way, protecting me from the harms of those who only pretended to care.

When the People desert you, always know that Allah won’t…
…When people violate on their promises, now that He don’t.

When friends becomes enemies, and confidants become betrayers…
…Remember that Allah is by your side, just maintain 5-daily Prayers.

Always keep His remembrance in your heart & mind…
…None is worship-worthy, but He, only He is Divine.

His Book is pure and its message is true…
…He sent His guidance just for me & you.

Maintain this premise until you die…
…In the Paradise, I hope you reside.
