Silence Broken

Silence builds an awful wreckage of a girl
It feeds on loneliness and creates a void
Gray shadows haunt and torment and torture
Regret & Pain,a mixture of both

There is no sound of laughter or happiness here
Somber, melancholy moods decay the soul
Emptiness builds a home in this woman
In this girl, this child where hollows have bred

A deepening sea of nowhereness consumes
And eats away at every connecting thread
Destined to walk through life less ordinary
Alone, exiled, different and disdained.

Who is to blame for this condition of hers?
No one but herself
She was weak and eager to throw the light away
And now she suffers in silent agony
She is lonely,separated from her beloved

She’s swimming all alone in a pool of darkness
and she feels like darkness is slowly pulling her under
She begins to see the water at eye level
and she kicks and flails
fighting to stay above the darkness
But the darkness won't let go of its hold on her
and she slowly begins to give in
to the feeling that lies below the water line
the waters starts to fill her lungs
the lungs that once held so much life
yet now they allow the murky water to replace that
She knows that this path doesn't lead her to happiness
But why doesn't someone grab her hand
pull her from darkness's grasp?
because no one knows she stands at the boundary
the boundary between light and dark
so she gives in to the thing that holds her
All of the strength and all of the courage
that she once held in her heart
can't save her from the water
So she slowly slips below the world of conscientiousness
undetected by the occupants of that world
she doesn’t want to fight anymore
she’s given into darkness
She’s accumulating sins
She’s destroying herself
She’s losing
And no one will understand that

Even though you can't tell
She is reaching out
For what, she doesn't know
She will continue to sit in silence
And hope that someone,someday may stumble across
Her and all of her emptiness
That someone may know her in this world she lingers in.

But one day it all changed,the light of Islam and the love for god changed everything forever.Darkness dispersed,its only light upon light now!

Hopeful
