Surrounded by four walls, boxed in, caved
With the only Being that can cause my grave
Death and life swirls around Him in a spiral
One hand holds the Qur’an, the other the Bible
Beneficent, Merciful, but also the number one killer
The Destroyer, but also the Majestic Healer
Fear no one but Him I’ve been taught for years
And now when I face Him, I feel the fear
Because what if He judges me for my sins?
Prosecute me because of the devil inside this Black skin?
Peaceful but yet wrathful, how can I understand
This Being formed from one single atom’s hand?
That gave light but created Satan too
Just a lowly servant under His ultimate rule
But then He says, “As-Salaam Alaikum, peace,”
And so in a millisecond my fear is released
