My Lowly Aspirations

While driving my littlest one to school,
Looking out the window, I often wonder

What would one give to own a mansion?
Living in this land without tension

My thought puts me to shame and I realised
Have I ever craved for Jannah, the greatest prize?

Dreaming about this dunia so fake
Yearning to acquire it for pleasure’s sake.

Have I ever yearned for that which is free?
So treasured and rare as nothing could be.
