The Fall

“Deep in the sea
Are riches beyond compare.
But if you seek safety,
it is on the shore.”

– Saadî


How many times have You made me fall?
Again and again.
Over and over.
But then how many times have You made
Me stand up?
Until You made me surrender
To Your magnanimity.

Often I have wondered
about Your ways.
They are uncertain
And I am full of doubt.

But You make me wander
In light
As much as darkness
And only a fool
Would be so ignorant
As to call their life
Their own.
