A wasted life

You asked me "Why I didn't care?"
It's because I forgot about you
You asked me "How could I forget you?"
Its because I was blind
You asked me "How did you become blind?"
Its because I was busy
You ask me "Busy with what"
I say I was busy with life, school, work, love, heartache, TV-
You stop me and ask "What is it all worth, now that its over?"
Nothing, I say
"So why did you do it?"
Blind and stupid, I say
What do you think you deserve?
Hell, I say
"Then why are you here?"
To beg, I say
To beg on behalf of my worthless soul
To beg on behalf of of my wasted life
On behalf of my broken heart
Because my lord you are merciful
Dear God for everthing to mean nothing
For you to be everything
Give me mercy
Give my underserving soul mercy
Because you are great
And I am nothing

Because you are great
And I am nothing...
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Nuriddeenk, Although, you disappear for long but whenever you come back you bring a beautiful poem with you. MashaaAllah, Alhamdulillah.

The whole poem seems to be the voice of a believer particularly these words: "Because You are great And I am nothing" for these remind me the prayer of Prophet Yunus (Alaihe Salaam):
"There is no God but thou, glory be to Thee; surely I am of those who make themselves to suffer loss."
Please Nuriddeenk don't deprive us and yourself of the great talent you have, write more and inspire more. May Allah reward you and keep you in His protection. Ameen.

Melinda, thank you so much for remembering us in your holidays.
Also thanks for your well wishes for new year.
May Allah accept your prayers for us and yourself.
May He increase your and our love for the holy book, Al-Quran. Ameen.

Dear didi, I agree, its certainly simply awesome.
Now all we need is to convince Nuriddeenk to write more and more poems for Guiding Friends.
May Allah reward her because her poem praisest thee was the inspiration behind the creation of Guiding Friends. MaashaAllah.
