Isam Hussain (8-12-1938 / Iraq)
How can I not revere you,
being the God you are.
How can I not believe you,
being the Truth you are.
So, why do I doubt you,
seek answers elsewhere,
when all paths lead to you,
no matter when or where.
Is it because you draw so near,
soothe the soul, burn all doubt,
then withdraw somewhere far,
rekindling the cinders of doubt?
Why should I tolerate your dallying,
follow you on a road meandering?
Why can’t you settle down with me?
Why can’t you remain faithful to me?
Lord, is it I?
