‘Change’, A Poem by Nurat Daniju

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
It was something I kept hearing on graduation day.
I never knew what it meant until I pondered on it today.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I look as the moon begins to set and the sun illuminates the sky with its rays;
but the Lord of the Universe will continue to Reign.
His creation always changes but His Perfection will remain.
Because the more things change, the more they stay the same.
As the seasons change the leaves will grow on the trees.
Then that same tree will lose its leaves due to the winter breeze.
However, Allah will always be there for those of us in need.
This is a sign to those of us who believe.
Because the more things change, the more they stay the same.
We have a natural yearning to want things to last forever;
however we always cling to the things in life that change.
Allah is our only Constant Variable and He reveals that to us with His many parables.
The Sun that lights up the Universe will eventually set.
These are signs for those of us who reflect.
Because the more things change, the more they stay the same.
And it turns out that we’ve been looking for true love in all the wrong places.
This world will elevate you one day and make you fall flat on your face the next.
But you should always have faith in Allah because He never left.
Even our best friends and family will leave us someday.
Because the more things change, the more they stay the same.
We cherish this world but it will never love us the same.
Yet we forsake the One who is closer to us than our jugular vein.
Solely focusing on this world will equate to no real gains.
Even Allah mentions that this world is only filled with amusement and play.
Amusement and play is what we focus on all day,
you see this worldly life diverts us until it’s time to go into our graves.
We all come from different walks of life but we have the same fate.
Because the more things change the more they stay the same.
We’ve forgotten our true Purpose so we no longer recognize ourselves.
So we’re constantly striving to accumulate more wealth and
for everyone else to think that we’re the best.
This isn’t just with our generation, this issue is timeless.
Because the more things change, the more they stay the same.
It seems as if we’ve forgotten about our true Home
and worldly things will leave you when you’re six feet below and all alone.
There will come a day where no one will remember our name
because the more things change, the more they stay the same.
We come from the Heavens which is the place we call home and
nothing here belongs to us besides our own souls.
Our bodies only serve as a container and the soul makes it whole.
We are lost in this world trying to find a place to go
and if we follow our true Purpose we can make our way back home
where everything last forever in a beautiful abode
which is a garden where beneath it
rivers flow.
