Flashback

Little girl: Mom, let me take my dolls with meMother: no, we don’t have time, we need to leave now! Little girl: but mom, please! I will carry them! Mother: we will return, it will not be for long!Little girl: at least my favorite doll, please momMother: let’s go The little girl was so sad, what will happen to these dolls alone…She used to be afraid to play with them and break them; she wanted them to stay brand new! Well they stayed…or they didn’t? She was thinking the entire time and whispering to herself: They were afraid in the dark, in this big living room? She placed them in the best place in living room to remain untouched and new! They were hurt when the house was destroyed? I hope they didn’t feel any pain…I hope my favorite doll was sleeping when they invaded! She was on my bed; I hope she was sleeping…. The little girl wasn’t concerned that she lost her house, and everything in it! They snatched her from her hometown, her home. She slept having everything and woke up having nothing! They took everything in seconds…But she was concerned about the dolls! And by the time she had the chance to be back to her home, she was too old to play with dolls, she was too broken to care and sometimes to even feel…The house was destroyed and empty even from memories. They even […]

The Power Of Love

“See how easy it is to be heartless and cruel? It is so easy!! But it requires a great strength to have a loving heart! Fuck off” (Part of a story I wrote) Love is not for weak people, those who are always afraid to be rejected, to be dumped, to be left alone, to be cheated on, Love is for those who went through all the above and they are still able to love and not afraid to try again because they know very well it’s not about them, it’s not personal even though it’s hard not to take it so personally! They consider that whoever hurts them it’s their problem and their issues! They just move on and continue living and loving…. Feelings change and people change, it’s not a problem, just never stop loving and trying; Even if they mock you, reject you, laugh on your feelings…it’s always about them, it’s always their issues and their problem, because they are unable to love, because they simply don’t like you, they’re not interested..etc…I mean what about the people that are chasing you and you’re not interested? you keep bragging that this girl or this guy is crazy about me but you don’t care… So when people reject you, you don’t close your heart and become rude and heartless, you just move on and keep loving and caring…Love is the only power that can change the world for the […]

Unfair…

We give our attention, love, devotion or support…sometimes our all,  to people that eventually use us and hurt us deeply….That when we meet people that deserve our devotion, love and support, we are too broken, too afraid to even look at them! And this so unfair for them and for us… H.A – Written in December 2018

Strong faith

I wish sometimes I can have the deep and strong faith I used to have as a child when I used to drop my small ring on the big road full of gravel, sands, grass and sometimes thorns…And I always knew I will find it…and I always did! (I still have this ring) Written in December 2018

Disconnected

I don’t recognize the reality anymore, it’s annoying and disgusting. I feel disconnected from this real world, ugly world… Sometimes I look into people eyes and I hear nothing from what they say…I look around and I don’t see anything! I’m just living in a virtual world…I’m stuck in my story, I’m stuck with you! Written in November 2018

Some People….

You must realize that some people are in this world only to help you discover at some point that you are still able to dream or feel not more…they will not be a part of your life, maybe they only exist in your imagination…And that’s OK… Written in October 2017

We Don’t Get To Choose

I hurt so many people unintentionally or maybe because I was hurt. As many people hurt me unintentionally or because they are hurt. This is can’t be stopped or prevented. We love whom we love, we like whom we like and we don’t get to choose the chemistry, the connection, the telepathy and the attraction. The world would be pain-free if we get to choose! At some point, we will all be treated the same way we treated another person, so we know the feeling very well but we can’t do anything about it. Fair enough, I guess. Written in October 2017

Keep Focusing

معظم الناس لا يهمها سوى تحطيمك عليك أن تحافظ على تركيزك متوجهاً نحو أهدافك لا أحد سواك مسؤول عن وصولك إلى أهدافك بل أكثر من ذلك، الجميع سيحاول كل ما بوسعه لتضليلك وعرقلة طريقك وحملك على تغيير اتجاه سيرك وفي غالبية الأوقات ترى نفسك مقتنعاً بما يقولونه ومغيراً مسارك، الأمر المحزن والمؤسف الذي يؤدّي إلى تخليك عن أحلامك رويداً رويداً والإستسلام إلى الحياة العادية واالمملة التي فرضت عليك أحياناً حتى ظننت أنها الحياة الوحيدة المتوفرة والمسموحة January 2019

Mutual Relationships

All relationships should be mutual…otherwise just retreat. Some people just like to receive care / admiration / respect / even simple greetings without the intention of giving them back, or to simply be kind enough to treat you the same way or even a bit close. You must know that these people seek fans and followers not acquaintances, if you’re a fan or follower then no problem, it’s your call and your life and no harm of that. But many people, including me, are unable to follow…they believe in mutual respect and trust…they believe in reciprocation so they just retreat and keep their distance without judging or criticizing. Everybody is free to act as they want as we are free to react the way it suits us as well. I mean unless you’re one of my idols in life or some very big star (which I hardly care), I’m not seeking to be your follower or fan, I’m trying to build a relationship, create a bond and if it’s not mutual, I just retreat silently.
