Life isn’t a Piece of Creamy Cake 2
I hear a loud call,
Six feet below,
from Mother Earth.
thinking sleep would save me,
the urge to walk my way
through this darkness.
For every bit of my life’s struggles,
I would take a step,
back to the very call.
Not because it’s the appointed time,
but to bore my state
on my journey of no return,
not ‘cos its my appointed time,
but Mother Earth’s call
becomes louder by the day.
can save my soul at wake.
By my self,
I dig six feet
beneath this letter,
to anyone who gets in first.
lest I forget,
till we meet again.
A poet writes by themes available sometimes, from the heart as a result of feelings and experience. Other times, the piece is only penned through inspiration.
In other words, Life isn’t a piece of Creamy Cake is as a result of inspiration and suggested theme.
It’s important to note that suicide is never an option no matter your struggles in life. Always think of the sweet sides and not suicide.
Allah said: Al-Mu’minun 23:62
وَلَا نُكَلِّفُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَاۖ وَلَدَيْنَا كِتَٰبٌ يَنطِقُ بِٱلْحَقِّۚ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ
And We charge no soul except [with that within] its capacity, and with Us is a record which speaks with truth; and they will not be wronged.
Your life afterall isn’t yours, it belongs only to the one who made your life.
Allah said: Al-Baqarah 2:258
أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى ٱلَّذِى حَآجَّ إِبْرَٰهِۦمَ فِى رَبِّهِۦٓ أَنْ ءَاتَىٰهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمُلْكَ إِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَٰهِۦمُ رَبِّىَ ٱلَّذِى يُحْىِۦ وَيُمِيتُ قَالَ أَنَا۠ أُحْىِۦ وَأُمِيتُۖ قَالَ إِبْرَٰهِۦمُ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَأْتِى بِٱلشَّمْسِ مِنَ ٱلْمَشْرِقِ فَأْتِ بِهَا مِنَ ٱلْمَغْرِبِ فَبُهِتَ ٱلَّذِى كَفَرَۗ وَٱللَّهُ لَا يَهْدِى ٱلْقَوْمَ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ
Have you not considered the one who argued with Abraham about his Lord [merely] because Allah had given him kingship? When Abraham said, “My Lord is the one who gives life and causes death,” he said, “I give life and cause death.” Abraham said, “Indeed, Allah brings up the sun from the east, so bring it up from the west.” So the disbeliever was overwhelmed [by astonishment], and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
However, never attempt to take your life or another’s life as you cannot create a soul. God as warned against taking life. He says: Al-An’am 6:151
قُلْ تَعَالَوْا۟ أَتْلُ مَا حَرَّمَ رَبُّكُمْ عَلَيْكُمْۖ أَلَّا تُشْرِكُوا۟ بِهِۦ شَيْـًٔاۖ وَبِٱلْوَٰلِدَيْنِ إِحْسَٰنًاۖ وَلَا تَقْتُلُوٓا۟ أَوْلَٰدَكُم مِّنْ إِمْلَٰقٍۖ نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْۖ وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا۟ ٱلْفَوَٰحِشَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَمَا بَطَنَۖ وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا۟ ٱلنَّفْسَ ٱلَّتِى حَرَّمَ ٱللَّهُ إِلَّا بِٱلْحَقِّۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ وَصَّىٰكُم بِهِۦ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ
Say, “Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you. [He commands] that you not associate anything with Him, and to parents, good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; We will provide for you and them. And do not approach immoralities – what is apparent of them and what is concealed. *And do not kill the soul* which Allah has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This has He instructed you that you may use reason.”
No matter the situation you find yourself, be steadfast and be sincere.
May God Almighty ease all our affairs.
