Observing the observers


“They tell me how to dress up, how to talk, how to smile, how to laugh & live in style; all because they will be observing & judging my every step, every breath…. but did they forget that have eyes to see and ears to hear too?? for before you started judging me, i started observing you… my time is too precious, my smiles priceless so why should i waste them for the tears you make me weep in night? I was created for a purpose & not just for your amusement and pleasure?

Yes i was born for a reason.. a reason far greater than pleasing the selfish.. I wasn’t made to be a puppet or to be enslaved, I was born to be free, to fly high. To serve mankind for humanity but not for materialism…

No… when you decided to observe me, and judge me and compare… you forgot I am observing you too… so worry not, we’re both safe… before you reject me, I already rejected you…”

Reignite or let it off?


And sometimes all you really need is a time out… open your diary of life… re-read the lessons it taught you, relive those moments and tell yourself, “If I could get through that, if this happened then, it can happen again & once again, I can get throught it now!”

Things will happen all through life, often times the repeat like a déjà vu… and sometimes to have a different ending than the last one, you need to go through the lessons again, revise them, and act on them!

That’s it!

Nothing is impossible.

And if you’ve been praying for God to reignite the flame then perhaps this is a sign… If you remember your lessons, you will know that this is when you can either cover the candle with your hands while HE reignites the flame or be ignorant and let it go off again…  choice is yours…

Believe in Karma?


I wait at the bus stop and a couple arrives, both old and shaking but yet they hold each other’s hands, giving the support needed.  My bus arrives and I get on it and as it takes me to my destination, I see many others like them; some with a companion & some alone…  My destination arrives, I start my job and with each passing hour, I see more old people.  Some of them fit as a fiddle, while others suffering from one disease or the other.  They are out to shop with shaky hands and weak legs, almost deaf or almost blind, some diabetics looking for sweets to change flavour of mouth while others who can barely hold or stand, look for something to cook for their guests…  all old, and all on their own.  Very few I find with a partner or a loved one…  and each single one reminds me of my parents… and my future that I fear…  not because old age is bad, but because the way our generations have gradually forgotten to treat old people with love, care, compassion… including many children have forgotten how to take care of their parents… this includes people from my generation…

So yes, I m scared of growing old when I see them.  And I know many people believe in Karma, that if you do good, you get good… and while I believe too, I am also realistic that sometimes bad happens to you not because you did bad, but because the bad doing was meant to be done by the other person while, being a Muslim, for me it was a chance to be patient to earn rewards…

For now, all I know is that when I see old people struggling, my heart bleeds… I pray Allah ease their troubles… Aameen…
