Still a Lost Girl

by Mariam Siddiqui

 

I am a grown woman lost

Whose childish tendencies

May lead her to destruction

Or maybe, I’m hoping it will lead me towards the

Eternal Light

My Salvation

Oh, the One who Loves and Saves

Please rescue this child in disguise of a grown woman

Please save me from my greed, that incessant terrible voice that

Demands from me to take and consume more and more

Please save what’s left of the innocent child soul

To transform into a being of inner beauty and grace

My Lord, I am the broken one running from the darkness

Save me from its conflagration

This child-woman has seen a glimpse of something beautiful

Alight shining bright, a cool moonlight that doesn’t burn

Inviting this broken soul to take a glimpse from the outer window sills

Into the embracing purified light

The caravan is ever moving-rolling along the road

Its driver ever hospitable, welcoming to all to take a step onboard

The road to success is only one way, always open for those who

Desire and seek it,

But dare I take the plunge?

Will I be saved?

Oh, my Master, I feel so sad

My soul is broken and this world wants every last piece

I am desperate to come home to safety and to good company

Please rescue me, guide me and teach me

But please don’t leave me to myself

I will be overtaken

Please keep me under your protection

Please help me break my chains

Guide me home to your eternal light
