POEM: Sonnet "My Choice To Choose The Friends I Trust" Written by sister Mariam

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Although I am in general friendly,
And cheerful from the way I was brought up,
With those who love God I am close only,
With God's foes I choose not to talk a lot.

While to ignorant folks I seem lonely,
I trust my choice to choose whom I befriend.
My time and each moment that God gave me
I spend on those I love and can defend.

Choose your friends; on liars don't waste your time,
Don't share your dreams with those who'll give you naught,
Don't mix your truths and secrets with their lies,
No troubles nor in their traps getting caught.

To befriend God and His allies I choose.
Fakes go with liars, and both parties lose.
