Asalamu Alaikum all, a poem that intends to remind & encourage :
Verily after hardship comes ease
“But lo! with hardship goeth ease, Lo! with hardship goeth ease; so when thou art relieved, still toil And strive to please thy Lord. (Surah Ash-Sharh verses 4-8)
Climbing the world’s highest mountains,
Swimming in the deepest seas,
Running through the hottest fires,
Verily after hardship comes ease.
The peak you’ll reach, the fire will cool,
The water won’t drown you,
Patience is your tool.
To overcome your trials and have release,
Patience will open the doors to peace
Peace of mind, heart, and soul,
Giving you strength to continue your goal,
Of eternal bliss in an eternal abode,
A place the soul yearns for and wishes to go.
For how often does happiness last in this life?
Before it’s replaced with bitterness and strife?
You weep and a moment is gone, a sigh and there goes another,
Mothers lose sons, sisters lose brothers,
This is to remind those who feel burdened with troubles
That your Lord is not punishing you, nor making your tests double.
The seasons of life from good to bad,
Are not for you to mourn over what you may have had,
The tests are designed for the return to your Lord.
So you can seek comfort in his reassuring words,
That relief is promised to those who will persevere,
In this tiresome journey of life, which will bring a few tears.
No matter the heights, no matter the depth,
Even if it feels like it could be your last breath,
Never give up the fight, keep pushing, you’ll see,
That verily after hardship, there will come ease.
