there are only two certainties in the world: love and death. life is about submitting to both, to find the One.
luscious green turned fiery orange,
we gather for warmth, for reassurance
we marvel at that which is soon to drift away-
the world in itself is a wondrous play.
as autumn comes upon us,
and the air is crisp-
I cannot help but reflect
on impermanence, the state in which we live
the leaves around us turn so markedly bright
we unknowingly dub death as a beautiful sight
for that which brings us awe and admiration
is in reality just the stark truth of Creation
as this season passes swiftly, such secrets unfold
not a single color remains, nor does a single soul

Reminded me of this:
One day Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it and he asked the Bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah.” (At-Tirmidhi)
The kind of sad that hurts in a place so deep you didn’t know it existed… A place that not even tears can provide comfort for because crying doesn’t soothe the pain.
it’s alright, you know.. that we haven’t quite met yet. at least, not the way we’re meant to meet. i’m making myself better for you, and i hope that you are doing the same… so that when we do meet, when that day does come, we truly are deserving of one another. <3
We shall become.
