Inside your heart screams

by Muhammad Irfan Shariff

Inside your heart screams

Scream again

Scream and let your soul scream with agony for one’s heart and mind causes so much distress


Like jumping hopscotch through 3 Palestinian landmines
Like hugging a single mother who goes through torment all the time

Like red envelopes leaving hefty fines
Like my unmemorized freestyle rhymes,

Like 5 daily prayer times

Where I need to remember to reach Junnah in due time

But its that division and separation

That keeps Muslims with starvation with no ration

Where the ummah is kept Quiet

Like halal food dreams at KFC but you just cant buy It

It’s the words I say

Like differences put between us yet we’re all made of clay

Its one blood clot, its that one religious spot

That you got. That You got. That You Got

To whimper, to tear, to beg,…to beg for your soul,
that warp of a time

Creates a blood rush to your head from your spine
that Love… that Attention
That need for direction
A Junnah mission, to make that tough decision

That internal promise…that you had

That time you made your mom cry

But you didn’t really care cuz you were mad

Its that essence

That repentance

That Junnah sentence

That slave of Allah license

that you HAVE!!!

That I have

So its you

To be unique

To be me

To drop conformity of an ethnicity

And just be me

Its that what drives me

Its that what takes me

Insha Allah
