Intentions

I’m afraid of bad intentions
When I write these simple lines.
‘Come on! You can be famous!’
That’s the devil, holding signs…

I speak the truth through my words,
Hoping that you understand.
That I’m not writing these words
To make myself look grand.

My ego sometimes brings me down
And I know that as a fact.
So please remind me when it does,
So that I know when to react.

I’d like to clean the table
Out of any dirt at hand.
So that every word I say,
Is easier to understand.

Please help me clean my intentions
So that it’s clear in my mind,
That I’m actually progressing
And not falling behind.

My Allah help us all keep our intentions pure.
Ameen...
