Void

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

There is
A gaping void
At the core
Of my being.

Everyday
I fall
A little bit more.

A deep darkness.

I have hit
Rock bottom before.

There is hardship
Before ease.
And breakdown
Before breakthrough.

I reside
In a foggy chamber
Inside my head.

My blurry eyes
Cannot see
The light.

At the end
Of the tunnel.

Yet
I have
Not lost hope.

Eagerly
I wait
For my Lord
To lift me up.

He rescued me
So many times before.

Patience is bitter.
Yet its fruit
Is sweet.
