To Bow Down Before My Allah

To Bow Down Before My Allah

Before darkness crumbles,
Before light takes its first breath,
I awake…
To depart to a place that humbles
To determine my destination after death.

Believing- to which I cannot say farewell,
I awake…
To eyes still under slumber’s spell
To limbs and bed, that are allies
To comfort that there is a prize.

As I stand before the One,
I awake…
With past sins, mistakes undone,
With modesty and lowered gaze,
With infinite gratitude and praise.

Before and after darkness crumbles,
Before and after light takes its first breath,
Five times, I awake…
To peace
To renewal
An outlet for release
An escape from the cruel
To direction of which path to follow

I awake.
I awake
I awake.
For Him.
For One.
For Allah
