Wake Up!

One day in HongKong

Oh, my soul!

the company of friends
you love come and go
you continuously satisfy the
demands of your dark ego

the pleasure you find causes you
to crave for worldly goods
you enjoy dining and laughing
that change your mood

you become more discontented
and less human
what a pity your soul becomes
rebellious and dominant

power, wealth, and prominence
all the time you hanker
fearless of your final
departure you never even care

hankering for the temporal world
darkens your sight
the remembrance of the Beloved
is forgotten by your heart

you cannot waste time for
the worldly life is not permanent
never take the Beloved for
granted every singe moment

be mindful of the One and the
in His mighty hands He holds
