if you had to be ‘stubborn’,

29 Jul

may it be the kind that makes you smile

even when they say life isn’t worthwhile.

May it be that which makes tears from the heart flow

when you plead to HIM that Jannah’s where you wish to go.

If you had to be ‘stubborn’,

may you be of those who choose to see the possibility

of a change of heart in one who considers you an enemy.

May you not allow a deed to define the other’s entirety

so you may deal with him with all sincerity.

If you had to be ‘stubborn’,

may it be the kind that makes you persist

in doing what is right which others resist.

May you never ever give up on those you love

yet not forget that guidance comes only from the One for Whose Sake you love.

If you had to be ‘stubborn’,

may it be the type that makes you bow down with humility,

to apologize and grow consistently.

May you recognize pride as the devil’s company

so you may avoid what is evil no matter how tempting it can be.

If you had to be ‘stubborn’,

if you truly had to be stubborn,

then may it be that which makes you run away

from anything–or anyone–that kills your faith each day.
