Are we there yet?

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

I cried
A little
Inside.

It feels
So near.
Yet so far.

Are we there yet?

Distant drumbeats
Echo
In my ears.

In sync with
My heart’s longing.

Are we there yet?

Is it just
A glimpse?
A dream?
A mirage?

When do we
Finally arrive?
At the door
Of greatness?

Are we not
There yet?

My senses
Keep searching.
For a sign.
That confirms
And convinces.

Perhaps
The door opens
When you are
Least expecting.

Enter
In humility.
With bare feet.
And an open heart.

When you are
Transported.
Elevated.

And finally there.
