I am afflicted
Prayer Tradition: Sufi

My back is broken by the conflict of my thoughts;

O Beloved One, come and stroke my head in mercy!

The palm of your hand on my head gives me rest.

Your hand is a sign of your bounteous providence.

Remove not your shadow from my head.

I am afflicted, afflicted, afflicted!
