Dress Rehearsal for Death

A dress rehearsal for death,

filled with many questions and relinquishes,

the reality of being just another human,

flesh skin blood and bones

and having a heart that beats

and will stop pulsating.

A dress rehearsal for death

wrapped in white robes

shedding off the responsibilities of the world

Labbaik, allahumma Labbaik

(i am present. Oh my lord, i am present)
