Failure

O’ My Lord ,
If I fail to become wealthy enough to afford a glamorous car
If I fail and never get into graduate school
If my name never shows up on a google search
If I never own a coach purse or gucci watch
If I never get to travel abroad and brag about the number of countries I’ve visited
If I never make a post on facebook that hundreds of people “like”
If I never get skinny enough to fit in a size 0
If I never get to satisfy all the different desires of my nafs
If I never get a wikipedia page dedicated to me
If I never get married to the perfect person
If I never reach any dunya related goal I have that satisfies the “I” … that’s fine

They ask why I love you; you were an ordinary man;
I tell them I can’t put it into words, maybe you can?

They say we are irrational, always talking conspiracies;
You started a speech “Ladies and Gentlemen, friends & enemies…”

They say to Mahmoud, it’s no time for twin tower truth;
But you said at JFK’s death, “chickens coming home to roost.”

They say my-way or the highway, some leaders these days;
Don’t confuse “methods with the objectives” that was your way.

They said Obama is better; let’s vote for him this time!
You said a “ballot is like a bullet,” so I didn’t use mine.
