Say a little prayer


My chest tightens,
Fear grips my soul,
Tears pour down my face,
Nightmares haunt me at night,
Voices fill my head,
I’m in despair.

I put my hands together,
And say a little prayer.

My eyes light up,
My heart starts pounding,
The voices in my head slowly disappear,
I say a little prayer to Allah that he keeps me safe.

I feel calm and at peace,
My hearts beats loudly to the sound of the azzan,
The names of Allah fill my head at night,
I lay to rest, knowing that Allah will watch over me,
I say a little prayer and close my eyes.
