Youthful Reflections on Faith

Just a Day

Just a Day….. yet it brings Hope & Opportunities.

Each day is but a sheet of lined paper

Clean and crisp,

Unruffled by worry,

Not worn, or tired and dirty,

But crisp like the morning,

When it is given to me.

The seconds, minutes and hours,

Are lines upon the sheet of my life,

Waiting for my words,

For my actions,

And my thoughts.

To fill the spaces in between.

I must stay within the margins,

Not scribble on the sides.

Write neatly, carefully, thoughtfully,

Keep in mind the One,

Who will read it all.

It might even be read aloud.

But every day,

Even with the best of intentions,

Though I start,

I mess up my page.

With angry words in bold,

Smudged with tears,

Crumpled and creased.

A few lines of gratitude,

Of zikr and reflection,

Are followed by many paragraphs,

Of  ugly complaints.

Regrettable actions, envy and greed

As my pen pauses,
