Sometimes

Things are beyond planning

And life doesn’t always turn out as planned

You don’t plan for a broken heart

You plan to be young forever

You plan to conquer the universe

You plan to fall in love

And be loved forever

~

You don’t plan to be sad

You don’t plan to be hurt

You don’t plan to be broke

You don’t plan to be betrayed

You don’t plan to be alone in this world

You plan to be happy

You don’t plan to be shattered

Sometimes if you work hard enough

You can get what you want

But most times

What you want & what you get

Are two different things

~

We mortals plan

But so does Allah in the heavens

Sometimes it is difficult to understand Allah’s plans

Especially when His plans are not in consonance with ours

~

Often

When he sends us crisis

We turn to Him in anger

True

We cannot choose what Allah wishes us to carry

But we can carry it with courage

Knowing that He will never abandon us

Nor send us something we cannot cope with

~

~

Sometimes Allah breaks our spirit to save our soul

Sometimes He breaks our heart to make us whole

Sometimes He allows pain so we can be stronger

Sometimes Allah sends us failure so we can be humble

Sometimes He allows illness

So we can take better care of ourselves

And sometimes

Allah takes everything away from us

So we can learn the value of everything he gave us

~

Make plans

But understand that we live

By Allah’s grace

Semra Polat, who I identified here as Sufi Girl, humbly & graciously accepted my reblogging of her poem & I’m very grateful…

Peace!
