Against All The Odds~by Hela Tekali


 

 

Against All The Odds

In the depth of my being, I search for you
Raising the ecstasy of my soul to call on you
My heart needs no other refuge, yet your love is there to soothe
Every inch of my body, for your presence is my only truth

Silence teaches me to be wise, through my absence
Presence is needless, when silent love is the essence
How long will it take my soul to learn the virtue of Patience?
Shall I bear so much suffering to taste the value of Persistence?

Love is a sweet word in my tongue
Yet, its bloody thorns are there to push their way through the throng
I have to withstand suffering to find my way back where I belong
Only through Perseverance, will my heart learn to be strong

Then in the depth of my being, I will again search for you
Raising the ecstasy of my soul to call on you
My heart needs no other refuge, yet your love is there to soothe
Every inch of my body, for your presence is my only truth

O Allah how long shall my heart withstand?
For fear that my soul surrenders its will before the end
Only with strong Faith in you, will my dignity against all the odds proudly stand.
