Purpose: Lost and Found

I walk with nose in air

Instilling those around me with fear

Whatever I do, I am the best

The world for me is a jest

I look around me in disdain

Scoffing at those in pain

I am my own master, my own slave

I dictate the rules for how I behave.


My heart is diseased

All within me, deceased

Where I’m going, I see not

Where I came from, I forgot

I begin to see the prison I’m in

As the walls around me cave in

My forehead touches the ground

My purpose of life, found.

  1. Very meaningful. I dont get it “i am my own master”? because i believe Allah is and you meant that aswell:)

    • JazakAllahu Khair for appreciating the poem. When I wrote “I am my own master”, it was not with reference to what I personally believe but was actually a depiction of what a person thinks when he has lost his true purpose in life. He starts thinking that he is the only person who can control his destiny, hence, he owns himself. I hope that makes it clearer. :)
