What a Healing
Poem by Aaron Haroon Sellars

I wanted to
run away
But You
made me stay
By Your overwhelming
You washed
this sinful face
With tears of
Turning to pearls
as they droppped
Penetrating meanings
hard to be stopped
Oh what a healing
the Chosen One!
Who liberated the
frozen one
Constricted by sin
now I laugh and I grin
Amazed at this gift
from a Lord so Great
Who has given me this lift
in spite of my state.

Written after the Akhdari Class with Shaykh Salek, Zaytuna Institute, 6/12/03
From Seasons. Autumn-Winter Reflections 2003-2004.
