I Wanted More – Islamic Poem

Author: Mariam Sobogun

I liked the green grass
It was lush and comfortable
Gave me a bed to lay my head
Alas!
It didn’t save me from the sun’s harsh rays
I wanted more

I liked the giant tree
With its broad leaves and wide mass
It shed me from the sun
And gave me edible fruits
Alas!
It is home for the fang(full) reptiles
But I am not a welcomed occupant
I wanted more

Yet again!
I got something better
Yet!
It wasn’t enough
I still crave more…

Perhaps,
I will never get it all
Perhaps I have to love what
Abide within my fingers
Perhaps, having little is what the world is
And the hereafter…. All!
