Emotions are messy,
They are not as straightforward,
never in the same state,
always moving about,
up and down and around.
Emotions are unreliable,
doing things that aren’t subtle,
making you feel things that you know you shouldn’t,
making you do things that you know you couldn’t.
And emotions can betray you,
leaking out your deepest secrets,
when you’re at your weakest,
But knowing best,
that it is a test,
will put your mind at rest,
and may Allah grant you success.
