peace be upon the hearts in disarray

Last Edited:
This project is an emotional response of a Muslim boy towards his placement within the landscape of Singapore.
  • My ear drums can contain
    But only the ringing of defeat,
    muffled by the waves crashing on my two feet.
    Distracted by the wails from the sirens of modernity,
    the cries of vices, unfamiliar places
    pounding on the empty shells of serenity.
    The hails of the prayers kill the requiem of dawn
    placidity now, a rare thorn

    In haste of the chase, I forgot the Qibla of my heart
    In the haze of the maze, I let the Mihrab crumble apart

    Monumental stillness, Raging calmness
    Empty , blasphemy.
    Lost, heed the caution
    losing my religion, food for the ocean
    drowning in fire, freezing as they burn
    Helter-skelter, prayer in order
    I have to run for cover,
    under shelter
    between the surahs of my Quran
    before the professions of your kalimah
    within the inflections of our adhān
    But the sirens invaded my head, creeping closer to the shores of my heart.
    Ravenous, smearing stains all over my Shahada , pouring sand into this cut
