Magic

Love is a magical thing
That can make you sing
Sometimes… in tune
But most of the times out of tune

It’s like magic
Though it can be tragic
When it makes you cry
And spend all night sigh

How beautiful it can be
When lovers are all together
Flying in the air and say
Here we are forever
Oh… I wish that was me

That’s why it’s called magic
Because it can never be related to logic
Few are lucky
But most are unlucky
Once you find it
Stick to it

Don’t make it go
Find it and say ho
That’s why it’s called the magical thing

Because it always makes you sing
Forever in tune
And never out of in tune

Another Visit...

video

Fahed 3

It was an ordinary school day,I received a phone call from the reception that I have to go there urgently.. To be honest I was really surprised.. I didn't spend time thinking. I rushed there.... To my surprise, I saw a short tiny boy smiling at me.. I didn't recognise him...

As soon as he saw me, he said, "Ostaz Tareq, Ana Fahed" I looked at him with astonishment... Then Hana' at the reception told me, he is from the orphanage... I was confused,didn't know to be happy or worried...
A number of questions bubbled into my head... Then Tala, the event coordinator came.. I told her the story.
We decided to call the orphanage and tell them...

While Tala was calling, I asked FAHED about his sudden and unexpected visit, he answered me that he came to see me and to see Waleed, a grade 6 student who was with us during the visit and spent some time talking to them, trying to break the ice...

I rushed to bring Waleed to talk to him till a man comes from the orphanage to send him back there,especially after knowing that he ran from his school to see us.

Fahed was happy because we were the first group to visit them, he and his friends knew that they really miss the company and love...

A Puzzle



It doesn’t matter if you are
Young or old
What matters being wise
As I was told

Some.. hide their identity
But majority.. lose their dignity

How to keep yourself proud
And never vanish in the crowd
Look for reality
Into your personality

Search for a goal
And never stop the ball
Till it reaches the target
By then.. you’ll be a winner
Who saves himself from all

No obstacles in your way
If you plan.. no more sway

Never depend on luck
‘cause once you are stuck
Nothing can be done
And you’ll completely be gone
No matter how far you run
Trying to look for the sun

How 2 be HAPPY

"1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

Thursday's Saying 2

"Use it before you lose it...."

Abilities



Some people can sing
Others always sink
In shallow water
With their scattered dreams

Some people can write
Others can’t sleep at night
Thinking of tomorrow
And their on-going failure

Some people are good dancers
But others are slow movers
Who are so hesitant to take decisions

Some people are talkative
Others are so passive
Can’t even express
What they really feel

But the worst kind is
The ones who think they are capable
But they are really disabled ---

Fahed Part 2

Since I was in charge for the Student Committee, I decided to do someting that strengthens the ties with the society. I started to gather numbers for orphanages in Amman, unfortunately many of them refused to receive us due to different reasons.

We could make it to appoint a meeting between some of our students and some orphaned kids(boys & girls),  till the very last moment I didn't know that they were living at Late King Hussein's Palace @ Al Hashemieh.... We took some food, juice & gifts to give away...

The day we chose was Valentine's Day, it's the real time they need to feel love and to be loved.. It's the time to make them feel that they are not alone in life.. they can make friends and be happy..

The time came ,we suffered a lot because so many check points, since we were the first school to visit them. Our kids were so excited to meet them. Finally we arrived. the boys went to the boys' wing and the girls to the girls' wing where they learned more about each other.

After an hour they all came to the court yard where they had brunch and were given the gifts, you can't imagine how happy they were! Everything went smoothly, they didn't want us to leave... They really experienced something new for the first time in their life.

I promised them to comeback once again, but to be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to keep my promise till that day came and Fahed did that THING!!!

Fahed Part 1

 I always longed to do something different... someting extraordinary that really makes me feel that I'm a useful citizen. It took me quite some time because two ideas came across my mind, I couldn't choose... It was really hard; both visits are essentials, how to start?

At last I found the right occasion??
Can you tell what it is?
Where did I go?

Fahed is somewhere in this picture.... I couldn't tell at that time that he will do such a THING later that really made me wonder...

Thursday's Saying

SUCCESS is not being at the TOP; it's how long you can SURVIVE THERE!

Feels Like Sand


Once in hand, feels like sand
You don’t taste it; you just want to waste it
You are so anxious
To make it happen
But once in hand
Feels like sand

We are so obsessed
Of what we never possessed
So it’s better not to make it real
And keep them as dreams

It’s the only way to enjoy it
When we keep trying it
Don’t make haste
Just stop and taste

e-world


It’s an e- world we’re livin’
No one is interested in givin’
Everyone enjoys takin’
Even if it doesn’t belong to him

It’s an e-world we’re livin’
Where people became in e-motion
& forgot all about emotion
Feelings became by touch
Chatting didn’t stop too much
But it didn’t go beyond or further
Than communicating or pressing the letters
By touch

It’s an e-world we’re livin’
Where nothing is hidden
People enjoy showing off
Caring less about cutting off
All the bad habits they are livin’
Or
The time they lose or spend in
Doing nothing useful

It might not be harmful
Yet
It’s a waste of time
We use to pantomime
Every time we look at the screen
And jump to express our fear or tear

Talking became really less
When we are living in such a mess
Nothing more to be said or added
Except
It’s an e-world we are livin’

Angels do not live on Earth
Because it doesn’t worth
To live in or stay alive
You’ll always be there
Though it’s not fair
To die so young


You’ll be treasured in our hearts
Because you are part
Of our lives
Memories never die
As angels never cry
You’ll be the good thing of our lives
That will be remembered
As long as we are living

My Life.... My Way

My Life … My Way




My life is my way

I never look back

To what I put in the sack

& throw away

Because they mean nothing to me

Since I’m living to be

Simply me



My life is my way with all the crazy thoughts

I have bubbling on my head

Some I’ve already lived

And some are just waiting to be lived and said

Time might not yet come

But once I have the determination

Nothing can take things away from me



My life is my way

I’ll never say “nay”

To what I believe in

Or to what I live for

Never give in

Or surrender for

All those who try to do nothing

But let me down

Because they can never make it my way



That’s why it’s my life

And I call it my way

FACEBOOK

My FACE is on my PROFILE
I write on its WALL
The PAGES in the BOOK
show the different look
of my STATUS
that keeps us CONNECTED
and never DISCONNECTED
from FACEBOOK
FAMILY & FRIENDS
relatives at far end
all SIGN IN
never give in
CUT & PASTE
doing it in haste
show your other FACE
at the WALL in your BOOK
FACEBOOK is where
all is hooked !

Goodbye

 
IT'S TOO LATE NOW
NO WORD IS ACCEPTED... EXCEPT GOODBYE
I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING
I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY
EXCEPT GOODBYE


THE LOVE I ONCE FELT HAS GONE AWAY
I HAVE NOTHING INSIDE ME TO SHARE
EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED NOW
YOU'RE NOT THE ONE I LOVED
THE ONE I HAD
THE ONE I WISHED FOR
NOTHING  MORE TO SAY EXCEPT GOODBYE


NO MORE TEARS TO SHED
NO MORE WORDS TO BE SAID
NOTHING MORE EXCEPT GOODBYE


TO GET RID OF ALL THE PAIN
I FEEL INSIDE
TO GET READY AND START
A NEW RIDE
GOODBYE... GOODBYE

Emptiness

EMPTINESS LEADS 2 LONELINESS
LEADS 2 SADNESS
MAKES YOU WANNA DIE


HOW DOES IT FEEL WHEN U R BORED?
OR DEPRESSED FROM UR LIFE
WHEN U FIND NOTHING 2 DO
EXCEPT CRYING AGAIN!


YOU'D BETTER LOOK FOR A NEW DAY
A NEW HOPE
OR
CHANGE UR WAY
TO MAKE IT GO
WITH WHAT U SEE OR FEEL
TO BE HAPPY AND NEVER
FEEL BORED AGAIN


'CAUSE EMPTINESS LEADS TO LONLINESS
LEADS TO SADNESS
MAKES U WANNA CRY
MAKES U WANNA DIE


NEVER FALL INTO EMPTINESS
OR LONLINESS... OR SADNESS
JUST TRY TO FIND A NEW START
TO BE HAPPY AND NEVER
FEEL BORED AGAIN
