This Ramadhan has been a real reflective ground, a means for me to really get to know . . . me. Waiting anxiously for the last ten days, as I first strive through the remaining eight, thoughtfully I write. Reason for this entry? Unknown. . . but needed:
'Such benevolence had my Lord bestowed upon me
Giving me the true feeling of floating ashore.
So, how could I possibly have understood the essence of joy
Without ever having tasted sorrow long before.'
