The Sleeping Boy and The Sleeping Ummah

Syed Wali Shah, aged 7


The sleeping boy sleeps soundly
While the sleeping Ummah is restless in living nightmares
Divided and surrounded by enemies

Still busy as always
Quarrelling among themselves
Of who is right and the most bright
Until their hearts are divided

Weaken without consensus and sacrifices
Too afraid to remember their  prophet's teaching
Too proud to adhere to their book of guidance
Too weak to defend themselves
Too meek to help the oppressed

The sleeping boy remained asleep
Not bothered with the noise made by the fractured Ummah
In dreams far away from harm
In dreams far away from harm
