I saw a beautiful Bird, just lying on the ground.
At first, I thought it injured, didn’t make a sound.
It wasn’t till I edged closer to it, that realized it dead.
My appreciation of the Bird’s beauty turned to dread.
It was a stark reminder, of the fact that Life is so short.
And, that Allah may take our lives, without any report.
He gives & makes Life so incredibly lovely.
But, then He imposes Death which is ugly.
It’s so painful, to witness the lifelessness of something once so elegant.
It stands as a sign that nothing lasts forever, lest we become arrogant.
The purpose of passing through life into Death, is to meet Allah on a higher plane.
But, if you choose to do what you wanna do, then, your Hereafter will be bane.
