Faith Liberates me


Faith is a Force;
It liberates me
From envy,
From jealousy,
From too much
Desire for fame,
For chair or high
Position and power,
Faith is a power;
It sets me free from
Lust and the prison
Of the flesh,
I am free or so think I
From all exceeding desires
For materialistic things.
I take whatever My Creator;
The Greatest Wisdom
That Created the World,
With satisfaction;
And satisfaction is happiness,
And a beautiful power;
I do not follow Satan's attitude
In wanting what Allah or God
Gave to the others,
And if I am deprived
Of few things,
I am bestowed with many
Other marvelous gifts,
Such as writing poetry;
It is a gift from The Generous;
From The most Creative.


Faith liberates us,
If we wish,
From silly things
That pull people down,
In fact faith is an
Unseen power
That surpasses all powers
Including military power,
How it can not be
As such
When it sets us free
From the killing need for
A human touch,
It liberates us
From youth constant
Need for love,
For care,
For tenderness,
Because faith makes
Human beings feel
Loved the twenty four
Hours of the day;
And that's the best way
Towards satisfaction.

When you feel Almighty
Surrounds you with His kindness,
When you are sure
He listens to you
He sees you
And protects you
From evil,
From wicked people
This leaves no space
For destructive earthly
Need or lust,
And don't tell me
That's not power.

    faith is when u are in harmony
    with your soul
    and body
    with your inner organs
    stream of your blood
    and beat of your heart faith is inner peace of mind (Report) Reply
