Sometimes I feel hurt, like I cannot get back up.

Everyday feels harder to deal with,

No one seems to understand.

I can’t find a cure; will I feel like this forever?

Trying to cure this emptiness inside

It feels like a void inside my heart

What’s the next step?

Tongue is twisted and can’t seem to make sense

Struggling to find strength

Take my mind off things only to find things becoming worse

Put my head down for just a second,

“Ya Allah, if you hear me make matters easier for me”

Suddenly that emptiness becomes smaller

This unexplainable feeling hits

Lift my head back up to face my problems


Find yourself a best friend,

One that will always answer,

Anytime, any place

Where can you find this friend you may ask?

Lift your hands up and close your eyes

As you make duaa, He hears all.

He knows what is best for you

Your Lord tests those He loves

The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth

My Best Friend
