A Muslim's prayer
Standing hand folded,
heart filled with humility.
I ask for your mercy.
I ask for your help.
Fingers spread over knees,
I bow, eyes looking down.
I search you in the skies.
I pull up my head with your praise.
Taming my ego, my pride.
I put my highest to the lowest, *
submitting my will to yours.
I prostrate before you my Lord.
I raise my head with your praise.
Cognizant of my supriority over satan,
with gratitude I prostrate again.
Each pulse brings me closer to you God.
Drops of tears like precious pearls.
I raise my hands with open palms.
Your blessings shower like rain,
I hoard it as much as I can.
