And so the people said: there is no god but God
and in the name of God, the most beneficent, the merciful
praise be to Him.
For he creates all in the world, the circle of life, cyclical
He was the Beginning, and will be at the End
Power unbounded, he is from firmament, fantastical and mythical
He is all External. In everyone, he shapes their Internal
Indivisible it seems at times, omnipresent always
Inexplicable is your endless love for mankind
In the first stanza I created a devotional tone and interlaced messages and elements from the Shahadda and of dhikr poems that praise the many names of God.
I think rhythm is as important in poetry as it is in music.
