Between Free Will and Destiny

I am dumbfounded

yet equally guilty

of knowing yet

not practicing fully

should I be jailed

in the prison of my own body

blaming fate to divine decree

do I submit being imprisoned

like Joseph

do I blame Zulaikha

or the prison guard

or applaud the staff of Moses

or the kingdom of Nimrod

do I admit none is resigned

solely to fate

do I question absolute free will

as my destiny

how about fifty fifty

between I am the creator

of my destiny

while equally submitting to

heaven’s decree

attached yet detached

I don’t know how

yet I do know how

I am capable

I am weak

I am active

I am passive

I must do

I must watch

I must trust

this very path
