Hold On My Pen..

Poem By hazem al jaber

I want to see the changes
that lies beyond these doors,
to the gate of future ages
and see what heaven has in store.

Slowly, I am letting go
Of this temporal earthly illusion,
Finding the reasons to know,
why time possesses my season.

I think about my future
What destiny has to offer?
I want to know more than before
I go as a lamb to the slaughter.

In life, I want to find out
which galaxy has the realm of peace,
Which stars define, being so complete,
And which ones will never cease?

I want to hear the omnipotent God
A voice, that has power over my life,
being a shelter and my rear guard,
taking away all my misery and strife.

Today, I surrender,
and leave what I have now
to find the moment that will last forever
and be exactly sure that I know.

How the change will happen,
when I want to laugh, I cry instead,
the pain only gets deeper within
The very moment my eyes are blessed.

Tears rained down my face
I wish I could hold on a little more,
but my number has been replaced
and the angel has come to close the door.

When I closed my eyes
stars are circling that moment,
I forgot the light changed to darkness,
the only beautiful thing has peace constant.

I am thinking about my future
And the rewards that are to come,
When my breath is no longer here,
By then, my journey will be done.

Still Waiting

Every sixty seconds spent waiting,
On the reality to obtain promises,
Could be a minute of inheritance gone?
Never to come back and take chances.

In Heaven With You

I’m in heaven with you,
Spirited away on a burning sphere,
Inside of me are the new
Imprints of this adventure.

Pain Shall Have No Power

The pain we hate shall have no lasting power,
And weak it will be when we shall see the sane,
Go without dominion into deaths final hour,
Sink into the ground where they will rise again.

Overcoming Obstacles

Courage sometimes is the quietest voice
That roars loudest from within,
Making faith a distinctive choice
And compelling motivation to try again.

Spring Is Here Again

Spring is here again taking a shower in the trees
Bathing the wind that brings again spring cleaning,
Wash the newly formed lawns and greener leaves,
Of April; wet days soak deeper in sprinkling spring.

My Future

I want to see the changes
that lies beyond these doors,
to the gate of future ages
and see what heaven has in store.
