2 'lil eyes

Inspired the group called Outlandish! .. you know it farz ;)


~2 'lil eyes

There's two lil eyes piercing at me left me wondering what they will be...

Will they be a solider or just another casualty. Will they be bold and strong, will they be firm and tall or just an empty vessel in the sea. Will their innocence turn cloudy, will their hearts start breeding animosity.

There's two lil eyes piercing at me left me wondering what they will be...

Holding a force I cannot compare. From their smile to their cry my heart just can't help but wonder why. Will the light and joy turn cold, will it be frigid as the arctic sea. Will it breed anger, a cloud of danger... O' what will they be?

Will they be an orphan child fighting to survive, or a doctor in battle trying to save the weak. Will they be stolen from their youth, crippled beneath the bombs and trapped by the foolish political greed.

There's two lil eyes piercing at me burning a hole in my soul that's deeper than eternity.

Fight for your right sweet ‘lil child. Fear no one, no hardship, and no man that you see. Let your eyes be light - a guidance for sincerity. Beautiful child, beautiful angel don't let the clouds fill tonight. No rain, no tears, no thunder, no hatred. Just honor and strength my beautiful child....just honor and strength.

There's two lil eyes piercing at me and wondering… Dear God give them strength to be a vital part in changing their society!

Assalaamu'alayakum wa rahmatu Allah

Thanks for that. It's so sad..subhanAllah. Your words resonate a lot stronger with me these days, as each day when I walk down the street I see a lot of kids who are trying to make a few riyals to survive. SubhanAllah it's heart wrenching for me. Even the other beggers, the older people, the disabled people..... I don't know what to do..subhanAllah.

Though you speak of war, I think the struggles that orphans, not in war zones, is just as applicable. subhanAllah, we have so much to be grateful for. May Allah use us as tools in His service and to be among those to help ease the hardship in the lives of others, ameen!
