Light upon light

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

Your Spirit
Was within me.

All along.

Yet I did not
Recognize You.

You brought me
To light
Out of three layers
Of darkness.

I still fumble.

The darkness
In my heart
Obscures
The Straight Path.

Grant me light
Upon light.

I am tired
Of this blindfold.

One by one
I enter the doors.
Only to face
A dead end.

I must close
My variety store.

Displayed goods
Trick the eye.

It is time
To seek.

Hidden treasures.

It is time
To see.

With Your eyes.
