    Thought I'd throw in a religious piece... Wrote this one, and disguised it as a break-up poem:

    “The Sinner”

    Gloomy, dark days since
    God's gift had run its course
    Tired, listless
    Somber
    Hopeless
    Can't seem to get out of bed these days
    Through my trance-like gaze
    I see a light that burns
    Eternally
    Illuminating my path to bliss in dreams
    Of a past life
    And Utopian futures
    My dejected days await relief
    Long, mentally-planned flights
    Fantasy abound round these
    Sleepless nights
    It's the only time I get to see you
    Tell you how I feel
    Ask the question: Why?
    If I could turn back the hands of time
    I'd find myself back in the days
    When you were mine
    It would remove the cloudy ceiling
    That dampens my world revealing that which
    Brings back the warmth and promise
    That use to light my way...

    what inspired this poem was something my Imam (religious teachers) said in a sermon: "No matter how dirty your past is, no matter how dirty your future is, God always has a clean future for you. Keep it that way..." So much wisdom there. The believer always regrets when he messes up--and unlike the cheaters who regret getting caught, with God we always get "caught".
