Bed Time Story
There once was a lad who couldnt lower his gaze, Distraught and disappointed he tried many ways, Finally he decided to go to a shaykh well known, And ask him advice for his desperation had grown The shaykh said to him, indeed but you've come to ask About something great, first though I have a task I have a friend of mine, on the other side of town And I have a daily gift I give him before every sun down It was a bowl of milk almost filled to the top He said take this here bowl and don't spill a drop! I am sending with you a friend with great vision To make sure that you make no mistakes in your mission! The lad began to walk with the bowl in his hands, Wishing them steady, he dared not break a command, For every step that he took, his guide watched with pierced eyes As if waiting for any mistake to arise When his task was over he return to the sage And said, the task is done, now show me the way! He said, 'you have done well but first let me see, Did you happen to see the house with the gigantic tree? The lad said, no, I'm sorry, I was not aware Well, you passed my uncle's street, did you see him there? The lad said, no I did not see an uncle or tree The milk would have spilled if I looked upward you see! And I was so nervous because your friend did not blink, So I watched every step, and thats all i could think! The Shaykh smiled and said, leave now, for this task Has answered the question you had wished to ask, The milk that you carried with focus throughout Was your book of deeds, much more important no doubt If you were nervous by one who records your every mistake Know that there are angels who write, if such allowance you make Life is a similar journey, but to a different address, So be gone, and focus young lad, I wish you the best!
