Being Imprisoned...

"The one who is (truly) imprisoned is the one whose heart is imprisoned from Allah, and the captivated one is the one whose desires have enslaved him."
-Ibn Taymiyyah-

I'm imprisoned
by school,
by culture,
by photography,
by football,
by the internet,
by technology,
by songs,
by Hollywood,
by delicious food,
by the NBA,
by sports,
by fun,
by money,
by desires,
by life...

The things I think I like and love
Are actually a web of traps
Wasteful things
To eat up my time, my soul and make me lose my way
Distorts me from being noble, righteous and free

Freedom is just a few rejections and steps ahead
With a hard head and hard heart,
Let us conquer life, rather than be conquered by it!!
