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.
