She Shall Maintain

Often times it's struggle when you're on your own
Maybe you've got some family but they can't make the home
You are the mother and father to your children
Often people don't understand the situation
They take it to a cause instead of following the root
They're trying to determine the reason, instead of focusing on the fruit
But that's the nature of man
They can't understand unless they too have been dealt with the same hand
So you remain, emotionally isolated though you're fighting to maintain
Trying to hold on to your dreams for you and your family, even though your situation is no longer the same
It can be an upward battle
Grouped together like a herd of cattle
So you ask yourself, what path must I take?
Successful is she who makes moves for Allah's sake
Your eyes may be wet in silent tears
But it's The All Hearing, The All Knowing that cures your fears
You can never make another man's wrongs right
You can only purify, perfect and rise beyond the eternal fight
Forgive to be Forgiven by He
Strive purposefully with your objective only on eternity
What appears to be
Isn't actually reality
Light in your life and heart only comes by following One Command
Don't be disillusioned to think it's rising to the social demand
I stand with you and direct your hands
Face them upwards towards He Who Controls All, He who Commands
Even if you stand alone, know Allah is Aware, He upon His Mighty Throne!

Just came across this verse somewhere today: "If Allah is with you, none can overcome you. But if Allah forsakes you, who is there then to help you?" :)
