-when you come to the edge of all the light you have, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen; 1. there will be solid ground for you to stand on, or 2. you will be taught how to fly


I swear by the truly Gracious One,
By His bounty and endless wisdom;
That, one day, justice will be done.
I swear by the unfathomable love of the Friend,
By His purity, which has no cease, no end;
Evil and wickedness will undoubtedly end.
I swear by His light, which, since eternity, shone,
And by the grandeur of His magnificent throne;
Everyone, for his deeds, must eventually own.
I swear by the holiness of His Face,
And by His ability to create;
There does not exist caste, division, or race.
I swear by the Giver of glorious gifts,
And by His judgment, fair, sound, and swift;
That His righteous slaves, to Heaven, will lift.
I swear by the One who sent down the decree,
And by the One who will, forever, be;
That everyone shall someday come to seeā€¦


The author's comments:
I got my inspiration to write this piece from listening to a religious song in Arabic (my native language), which was promising that everything that seems to be wrong with the world will eventually be fixed.
