We move into dark corners ever so slowly with accidental stealth
Spend years in our new homes before we realise
That we left behind our unlimited power to ask
And the biggest mistake is to assume we cannot put up a fight
Against our very selves, against these homes we created for ourselves
That consume us more and more by the day.
O Allah, place within my heart light,
And upon my tongue light,
And within my ears light,
And within my eyes light,
And place behind me light and in front of me light
And above me light and beneath me light.
O Allah, bestow upon me light.
