You are God's masterpiece

By Nahida the Exiled Palestinian

Yes… you

Those magical eyes
When you're happy smiling
And even when you cry

This mind of yours
A universe within
Fascinating, magnificent
By its very existence
But more so, its awareness
That it exists

That big warm heart
So loving, full of passion
Without even knowing
How or why

Can you keep a secret?
If you promise,
I'll share it with you…
Did you say yes?
Ok then… listen carefully

Your desire for love
Is an in-built yearning
To be with the One
Most Loving, God

Your hunger for justice
Is the innate longing
For the Supreme Just, God

Your search for peace
Is truly hunting
The Only Source of Peace,


Your secret wish for eternity
Is merely a deep aspiration
For the Eternal God


Your profound fascination of beauty
Is purely awe and wonder
Of the One Most Beautiful, God

Your appreciation of all creative arts
Is simply admiration
Of the One Most Creative, God

Beware, don't be distracted
By signs on the way
They're only means to get you by
Don't mistake them for your aim

Otherwise; your harvest will merely be
Big disappointments
And flat empty dreams
A heart full of sorrow
Confused and jeopardized
Carry on along the path

Your home and final destination
Is the One and Only,
For you, are God's very own
