In Need In Deed

I am dying of thirst of hunger of need

I die of power, money and greed

we breathe in disease

i breathe in toxins

i have resources

Until we stole these

i am carefree-except this poverty

We both have swollen stomachs

i’m starving you starved us

you fed yourself

we chose which child survives us

I am close to dying I feel quite free

I shall use your picture to promote charity

You raise funds and money taken from swollen pockets

infiltrate them into your own and then mock it

We do give it back, charity starts at home

If we did not provide for you you’d die alone

God put us here as a test for you to pass

Why do you think you are superior in class?

Why should we think of those that lie crying

I can’t hear your pleads

Because your souls are dying

Fortunate are those who are thankful and generous

Spending the most for those in need

Fortunate are those who remember that we will all go one day

and regardless of wealth, power and status

we will be judged according to our deeds



Quran: 2.270 
And whatever ye spend in charity or devotion, be sure Allah knows it all. But the wrong-doers have no helpers. 
Quran: 2.271 
If ye disclose (acts of) charity, even so it is well, but if ye conceal them, and make them reach those (really) in need, that is best for you: It will remove from you some of your (stains of) evil. And Allah is well acquainted with what ye do. 



Hi, my name's Aisha and I am 24 years of age. I'm passionate about writing poetry. Sometimes, I don't know how to convey my thoughts in normal conversation but I can spin off a poem about what I am feeling in 5 minutes. Or less. Writing is my thing. Like it is a lot of people's 'thing' and sometimes the only 'thing' that is a sufficient outlet to stop us all from going crazy. There's a lot of pain and anxiety in my poems, but often relief, which I find hard to convey but manage to slip it in at the end with a reference from the Quran or a hadith. If you feel you recognise this same emotional attachment to words, then feel free to read my blog and do not hesitate to contact me, comment and subscribe! Peace, Aisha -a.K.a-
