Welcome Ramadan – 05/17

A time of reassurance is upon us
Hunger and thirst accompanying it
Through it all we will grow stronger
In our faith and in our manners
In the space that holds compassion
In the actions that are not about the self
But bigger.

We will hold back unsolicited emotions
Control the anger while fighting the hunger
Although it resembles not a battle
But more of a daily celebration
With feasts, taraweeh and eid preparations
Welcoming all to iftar with open arms.
