Ramadan Poem | Day 11: Remembrance by Onafowokan Taofeek Busayo



Remembrance


Have/ I/sold/my/soul/so/cheap//
To/ the/spirits//
That/devilshed/my/love/ for/ Allah//
Have/I/sold/ my/piety/like/the//
Valley/sold/its/fertility/to/the hills//
Have/I/caused/sickness/to/the//
Souls/of/my/brethren//
Letting/me/lazy/of/prayer//
My/faith/degrading/like/the/rocks//
Worn/by/the/agent/of/denudation//
My/soul's/warriors/are/melting//
Like/a/candle/under/ a/ blanket/of/fire//
My/heart/towards/Allah//
Has/been/ weary/and/dried/ of/remembrance//
Of/Allah//
