I never knew

I never knew

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

I never knew who supported me until I looked at my parents.

"
I NEVER KNEW 
I never knew how strong I was,
Until I spent miserable days.
I never knew how much patience I had,
Until I didn't get what I wanted.
I never knew what I was capable of,
Until I achieved something great.
I never knew what I had in myself,
Until I recognised and learnt it my way.
I never knew the courage I had,
Until I was no more afraid.
I never knew I was kind,
Until my eyes shed tears for someone else.
I never knew I was good,
Until I saw my own true self.
I never knew I mean so much to someone,
Until I fell in love with him.
I never knew I had strength,
Until I lived alone all by myself.
I never knew time is perfect now,
Until I came to know time is never just right.
I never knew life isn't easy,
Until I fell and rose up to live my life.
I never knew the troubles I was facing,
Until I came to know about it at the right time.
I never knew I was happy,
Until I came to know what is sadness.
I never knew how blessed my life is,
Until I suffered and thanked for my life.
I never knew what my fate brought,
Until I prayed and made everything alright. 
 I never knew the power of love,
Until I got separated.
I never knew time teaches us lessons,
Until I learnt them.
I never knew everything happens at right time,
Until I waited and got it.
I never knew what it feels like to miss someone,
Until I got separated and apart from you.
I never knew the meaning of life,
Until I lived my life the way I wanted to. 
I never knew what patience is,
Until I prayed and my wish got fulfilled.
I never knew how powerful a wish is,
Until I shed tears and they got true.
I never knew the possibilities,
Until I discovered the endless things that could happen.
I never knew what I deserved,
Until I made the choices and took a risk.
I never knew whom I feared,
Until I decided to face it.
I never knew my own self,
Until I suffered and recognised myself.
I never knew the value of something,
Until I lost it.
I never knew happiness,
Until I found what was lost. 
I never knew what trust is, 
Until I trusted someone.
I never knew what a heartbreak is,
Until I suffered it.
I never knew I hide my pain,
Until I saw there was no one to share with.
I never knew I could bring happiness,
Until I made someone happy.
I never knew life is beautiful,
Until I discovered it depends on the way we live it. 
I never knew everything happens for a reason,
Until I found them.
I never knew what is meant to be will be,
Until I accepted the facts.
I never knew what my decisions would bring,
Until I left it all upon god and said
 'I have faith and you know what is best for me'

No problem!
The message of this piece is one that we should all learn. It reminds me of a quote by Khalil Gibran: "I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers."
I think this piece embodies that message and really shows how experience can be the best teacher at times. Every struggle is an opportunity to learn and grow.
