"Verily, you (O Muhammad) guide not whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided ones."
(Surah Al Qasas :Ayah 56)

A vision of darkness, never a glimpse of light
A vision of blindness, never anyone in sight.
A vision of life in a far away land,
A vision of holidays amongst the golden sand.
A view of something a little closer to home,
A scene of the wilderness, a feeling lost in thought.
A lifetime of deafness, withdrawn from nature,
The sounds of the animals echo and fade.

The distant smell of a lifetime of happiness,
The sour taste of a forbidden past.
A feeling of happiness, a moment of grief,
A feeling that remains,

A cold touch of warmness, the feelings deep down inside,
The darkness surrounding, unaware of a sound.
The peaceful blank vision of an everlasting dream,
The sour taste of paradise, the rough texture of sand,
The sweet smell of nature in that far away land.
A taste of the real world, ready for action
The sweet smell of success...
A touch of paradise.
(SS, 1997)
