chasing the shadow

*

*

I can see the sun
but
why can’t I see my shadow
pouring prayer and praises into the cup of faith 

*

I can see the dark
and
I can see my shadow
sipping the wine of pleasure from the cup of sin 

*
 
Oh Allah …..,
I am just a grain of substances
which was allowed to stop by and enjoy life
but tend to choose pleasure than piety
I’ve crossed the ocean to the edge of universe
to correct  the mistake of my shadow
turns
it has to come from the fibers of this self
to kneel below Thy splendor
