Thoughts on the Bamboo Tree

Did you know
That when bamboo is young
It looks like grass
Flimsy, weak and just so-so
No one notices
No one cares

But eventually the grass
Grows tall
Grows strong
Even its colour changes
Everyone notices
Everyone cares
People cut and harvest it
To use to make rice cakes
Chairs houses mats
Even speakers can be made

People like to use bamboo
But bamboo grass
People still don’t notice
People still don’t care
People are like that
Only
Things that they can use
They notice and care

No need to be sad
If people
Don’t notice us
Don’t care about us
What more adore us
People are like that
But God still loves
Everyone, grass and bamboo
Because if God does not love
Then how can grass become bamboo
Then how can people become brilliant

Because God loves
He makes people brilliant
Who are useful
Who are tall in deeds
Who are strongly principled

When you have become brilliant,
Please take notice of the bamboo grass
Tell people
Did you know
That when bamboo is young
It looks like grass
Flimsy, weak and just so-so
But Allah still loves it
Allah still loves
