The Road I had taken...

I've walked on and on, walked for very very long,
The road which I had taken proved really wrong.
But did "I" choose it? Wasn't it chosen for me?
The steps taken were not really mine, they were driven for me!

As always, I call it HIS work, I name my failures "destiny",
Sure it is, it is The Decree, but look back - a choice I had any?
Had I made a choice in which HIS pleasure lay?
Did the road I had taken, not show me a confused way?

Had the devil full control of my wisdom then?
Did I leave my story for The Lord's pen?
HE was MOST GRACIOUS, and to me HE did some signs show -
Telling me, you are gonna reap thorns, these seeds you don't sow!

I admit that I didn't give it a careful thought,
Unknowingly, I was fallen into the devilish plot!
I overlooked the road, which was leading to destruction,
Instead, I held to a companion, who seemed to have affection...

Since The Almighty is The BEST Judge, The Knower of things unseen,
I still don't judge if the companion was the reason to my ruin...
When I realized his real worth, his true colors did come up,
I had walked a very long way, my journey was too long to sum up!

This journey never was a smooth ride, it had ups and downs at every step
I thought that the companion I had chosen would always be the first help...
But when the road became worse and his hands started losing the grip of mine,
He held on to something and let go of me, thought he would just stay fine..

A lonely traveler, that I became upon that road,
No destination I knew, no safe abode!
But then came the help of my Creator,
My sins were great, but HIS mercy greater!

HE picked me up when I fell down tired,
The distance I had traveled, He had measured..
He wrapped me up in His love, He chased away my fears,
He drew me closer to Himself, He loved my tears.

He gave me a chance to live for His pleasure,
Blessed me with hope to forever treasure...
There is no walking back, though the road remains same,
I have learnt a lesson before I move on - LIFE is its name...

Jazak Allah for the comments :)

I am nobody, but a stranger, only a simple wayfarer,
My journey is this life till I reach the Hereafter..
Traveling all along the footsteps of my Teacher
For I have to, in time, reach the destination promised by MY
