A fifth pillar in the religion of Islam,
A duty compulsory for those who can,
A land of holiness and history I yearn to be brought to,
To make prostration to the creator who I will return to,
Zamzam water quenching not just a physical thirst,
But bringing a fresh outlook, and a spiritual burst,
Allowing me to correct and realise,
Any weaknesses that have limited my mind’s eye.
To obey without question and to love without fear,
The aim of my existence I hope to bring near,
Not limited by the wealth you own,
But if the invitation is written for you to enter this blessed home.
A dream I wish to fulfill,
A goal I hope to achieve,
Given to creation to act upon,
For those who truly believe,
A life-changing experience that I pray
Will change me to my core,
Which has changed so many that have made this blessed pilgrimage,
So many times before.
