An ode to Usama Canon
Do not tell me that one day we will die!
The moment born, a father aware
The greatest lie whispered in our childish ears
Life is forever, explore and enjoy
What a lie!
When men fall before our eyes
Never to be seen again
How can I not recognise I will die?
So do not tell me that one day we will die
It holds no meaning to me
It is and will be.
Let us not worry about the inevitable
Think of only what is possible
So I pray, my dear unmet friend
That what is possible
Is you feeling the joy of being again
That you rise up from the ashes of your demise
And strike light upon the hearts hollowed
In times like these
The greatest are those that spread peace
Whose intentions are beauty
Whose acts are inspirational
Whose motivations are divine
We want you to stay so to God we pray
On the age of the Prophet that the turning begins
From darkness to light; from fear to hope
From weaknesses to strength; from woe to joy
To give us light; to give us hope
To give us strength; to give us joy
