I’m goin’ L.A.M.B.!!!

Standard

Author’s note:
This poem is dedicated to my new personal-phrase, “I’m goin’ LAMB”, which is an acronym for L.ivin’ life to the fullest A.nd M.akin’ moves like a B.oss. I recently came up with this phrase, as a parody of the Jay-Z & Kanye West song, “H.A.M.”. And, since, as a Muslim, pork is Islamically prohibited, I just figured that it’d be nice for us, as Muslims, to use a phrase that wasn’t connected to a food-product that we’re not religiously allowed to eat. Anyway, this poem, that I hope you’ll enjoy, gives some highlights, as to what goin’ LAMB really means to me.

I’m goin’ L.A.M.B.!!!

I’m forever & always a self-made masterpiece.
My will is like a dynasty, no end to my streak.

God-given talents are the roots of my success.
On my agenda is simplicity, my ear to the ground.
Independent of foolishness, too old to be a clown.
Never subjugating myself, to defeat, or duress.

Lessons from life’s twists & turns keeps me humble.
Ambition to conquer makes the hard work beautiful.
My courage has compelled me to never run or hide.
Because of all these many tests & trials, I’ve arrived.

My thoughts on this week in my life:

Standard

This entire week, so far, for me, has been a crossroads-I’ve been treading the path between victory & defeat, success & failure, confidence & depression, conviction & confusion, and praise & slander-It’s also been like it’s all been a combination of all of the above…..

…..Oh, Allah!!! Just let me walk through the dense forest of tests & trials swiftly, and make the hiking-trail that you’ve paved for me smooth & wide!!!

#Amen!!!
