You say you care about the world
Yet you care not for yourself
You say you love the children of the world
Yet you love not the child in you
You say you forgive others
Yet you forgive not yourself
You say you want the best for others
Yet you embrace not the good that comes your way
You say you want to heal from all that causes you pain
Yet you choose to re-live painful memories everyday
You say you love Allah
Yet you are unkind to Allah’s creation that is closest to you
Yes, you are Allah’s creation that is closest to you
Appreciate yourself
Care for yourself
Be kind to yourself
Be compassionate with yourself
Forgive yourself
Love yourself
Remember…
You are Allah’s creation that is closest to you.
