The First Journey

Taken from “The Four Journeys” by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

With disappointment
fear,
anger and strife
there is some hope
for a better life;
if not soon
it may be in the afterlife.

We wish to leave behind
whatever caused harm
looking forward to
liberation,
peace and joy.

This is the hopeful path
from creation to Creator,
but be warned
for near the end
there is no way
to return.
