The Finish Line

the-finish-line-by-me

You run in the race without looking back

Sometimes missing the most significant things

Letting others trip over your obstacles

and jump over them to reach the finish line


You never showed arrogance

Always asked and accepted aid

And when the unimportant are done helping you

You have no problem throwing them away


Is your head so concerned with the ultimate goal,

that you forget the goodness of the present?

Is your mind so cluttered with green goods and possessions,

that you forget who placed them there?


I truly pity all your ways

And the irreverent style with which you live out your irrelevant days

I truly cannot blame you

For getting sucked into the black hole of life.

Misbah from The Planet Earth on March 19, 2021:

Laila, you framed it very well

Alas! A bitter reality of life and relationships

We should forgive such people

Allah forgives, and loves those who forgive others

I know sometimes to forgive and forget is the most difficult thing someone can do but I believe this is the only relief

There comes a time in everyone's life where they get to know where they were wrong

Trust on God, Indeed He open doors for us which we have never thought of

Keep doing good, it will return back to you. This is what I believe

Blessings and Peace Always

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 19, 2021:

It's sad that some people use others, but it happens.

They are arrogant & rude. Sometimes they remind me of a narcissist ...who only is out for himself.

He has no feelings.
