    Before
    Despair becomes rational
    Hell becomes perpetual home
    Before
    My sins leave no light
    And no path back to you is possible
    Before
    I rebel against you
    And Iblis handpicks me as his chosen companion
    Before
    I accuse your Guides as being sorcerers
    And leave no room for faith
    Before
    I see conspiracy in your graces
    And become blind to all the breathing you breathed to us
    Before
    No word can avail me
    And no army of Angels can save me
    Forgive me
    Forgive me
    Forgive me
    For the dark deeds that have no excuse
    For the heinous crimes that can't be spoken about
    Forgive me
    For the lack of shame by your sight
    And taking advantage of your compassion and forgiveness
    Before
    I recklessly destroy all hope
    Before I change every favor into ingratitude
    Before
    I run away from your path
    To misleading ways
    I ask you
    To forgive me
    Forgive me
    And erase and blot out from me
    Every evil that has remained with me
    Every vice
    And purify me
    A purification
    That leaves me never again turning back
    With complete resolve to move ahead
    A purification
    That makes me appreciating blessings
    And makes me appreciate the appreciation of the blessings
    A purification
    That gives me insights to your holy book
    And makes me perceive the insights left by your chosen ones
    A purification
    That leaves no room for the dark forces to cause doubts
    That removes all irrational thoughts
    A purification
    That makes generous and loving to your creation
    And not chasing after the winds of low desires
    Before
    I lose my soul
    before...
    I lose you O God for good
    For that is the loss of all losses
    And loss of pleasures pale in comparison
    And say I can handle the pains of your flames
    How can I endure pain knowing I have disappointed you and incurred your wrath?
    Forgive me my Lord
    Before nothing remains of the treasured blessings from you
    And all is turned to curses used by your enemies
    Forgive me my Lord
    And heal me the evil of my enemies
    From Human and Jinn
    Amen Lord of the Worlds.

    On occasion.

    That was a snap intuitive response. Could be wrong of course.
    Hostage to the God idea. Which is life and death in some circumstances.

    Death is the presence of no cognizance.
    Life is the presence of gnosis, and cognizance.
    God has nothing to do with life into death.
    Life is only a transference into another form.
    The `lifeform` exists in memory only, in others.

    Those memories will form the future.

    @Link

    I feel like I’m talking about you behind your back here. But I guess you posted to communicate and get a response.

    My take is that this is autobiographical, and you are now at odds with a ‘past life’, and those you shared it with.
    I also sense that a conflation of your religious impulse and purposes you rejected has left you conflicted, and now you have to pick them apart.

    Like giving yourself a heart transplant without anaesthesia.

    I was listening to Du'a AlHazeena taught by Ahlulbayt (as) which is much better and more eloquent than my poem, but it inspired me to write this poem.

    That is all that really happened haha.

    It's a prayer to be recited after the night prayer (which is optional prayer but the best optional salah you can do) and it's taught by Ahlulbayt (as) and it means "The prayer of sadness".

    If you see the prayer:

    You will see the similarity of course the prayer is much more eloquent especially in Arabic.
