At The End Of Twenty Twelve

Let me thank those from my heart's core
Who hated me openly and objected my deeds
For that hatred and those objections
Made me stronger, encouraged me in all actions

Let me thank those from my heart's core
Who loved openly, my absence they felt
For that love and those feelings
Made my heart bigger and in hearts I dwelt

Let me thank those from my heart's core
Who got worried for me, in my bad condition
For those worries and those kind feelings
Showed their care, my friends gentle tradition


Let me thank those from my heart's core
Who owned, occupied me, and left me
For that grip on my heart and in head mine
Taught. Nothing in this world forever to be

Let me thank those from my heart's core
Who entered into my life and made me so
For their entry and their company
Brought me smiles and into life, flow

Let me thank *Allah from my heart's core
Who helps me in all troubles and makes me bold
For His help and all His mercies
Guide my soul and deal all the above told

Allah= God

I dislike politically based poetry- especially concerning a past I have no knowledge of. But there are followers of this kind. In the end, viva la difference
