We say goodbye to 2014,
Oh, what a year it has been.
Of tears and triumphs unseen,

All tests to our Deen.

Of the Palestinian genocide,
Through it all we unite,
Though their cries might remain unheard,
But in our chest we can still feel the hurt.

Of missing airplanes,
And sunken houses from heavy rain,
Perhaps the bitter medicine,
Was what we needed to wake up in the end.

If I could make one wish for this new year,
Only one thing I would ask for in my prayer,
May our sins be forgiven, and the pain, forgotten.
And may our trials be our stairway to heaven.
