Jibran Sharif: Thoughts of a Drop

What I feel is peace and love

Faith, what clears my path above

What I feel is joy and grace

Enough to put a smile on my face

What I feel is what I know

Knowledge is enough for one to show

God, prophets and masters of faith

One thing that connects all, a light that’s great

What I know is what I’ve believed

Belief is everything my faith has achieved

Belief is what that gives me light

Against the evil, gives power to fight

Faith in the truth, faith from the core

It makes my soul stronger, mightier from before

I know it’s impossible, at the top I can’t reach

But I’ll be ahead, and the truth is what I preach

My soul is eternal, it will live forever

It will be a curse to fool, a gift to clever

The clever are those, from the heart they see

They think, they feel, they’ll walk beside me

A drop is my existence, a drop is what I m

The sea, the reality, a place from where I came

The river is what guides my way

Hope l will find YOU, hope is my pray.
