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
