Little Girl Lost

Upon adolescence becoming hormonally daring. Little girl lost. Really wanting someone to show her love.

Judgement askew from all the alcohol and drugs. Looking out through the window during class.

Extracting only remnants of what the teacher said. Her mind busy with other thoughts percolating within her head.

Mental meandering, self pandering. Exploited by her and others lower desires.

Trapped in acts that eventually lead to the fire. Finally she falls in love with Islam.

Through her willful submission Allah rewards her heart and mind with what is more than sufficient.
