So Real

Never found someone
Who would search into my soul
Who could see more than
What is revealed?

Someone who finds things
That I do hide..
Not only my smile
That is obvious for all
Someone who would really care
For me
All I found was just a lie
In an empty space..
Though it was full of people
Who are nothing but pretenders
I’ll never stop hoping
For that someone..
Who’s going to be..
So real
I might wait for so long
But at least…it’s going
To be real…not a dream
That can be faded away……

Words- An e-mail I wanted to share with you..

"جبران خليل جبران

البعض نحبهم
لكن لا نقترب منهم .......... فهم في البعد أحلى
وهم في البعد أرقى .... وهم في البعد أغلى

والبعض نحبهم
ونسعى كي نقترب منهم
ونتقاسم تفاصيل الحياة معهم
ويؤلمنا الابتعاد عنهم
ويصعب علينا تصور الحياة حين تخلو منهم.

والبعض نحبهم
ونتمنى أن نعيش حكاية جميله معهم
ونفتعل الصدف لكي نلتقي بهم
ونختلق الأسباب كي نراهم
ونعيش في الخيال أكثر من الواقع معهم"

ليش بنلومهم

    عندما يرون كل شيئ من حولهم يمشي عكس التيار
لا قواعد تحكم تصرفاتهم
لا أخلاق
                                                        .....    الكل غير مبالي
                                                                         كيف نتوقع العكس منهم
                            الخطأ في كل مكان حتى من الأشخاص اللذين يمثلون لهم القدوه
                                                     الضغوطات كبيره و المغريات كثيره                                  
في الشارع      
في البيت
عند الأصدقاء

                                                         لن أضيف أكثر     سأترك التعليق لكم
أنا أتكلم عن أطفال هذا الزمن

Thursday's Saying 5

                                  Mountains might be high but truth can never be a lie!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


Let us stop complaining
& start anticipating
Why to blame it on life
Since we are the ones alive

Life is what u make it
Not how it seems to be
look at it from all angles
Definitely u'll feel like angels

Happiness is giving
So enjoy living
It's US, not me
Give up selfishness
U'll get rid of emptiness

Learn how to share
and always care
for others
& remember
it's us..

Today I went back a year ago to my last job; the reason was what happened with a colleague of mine.. Last year I was the English coordinator for the whole primary in my school, I wasn't only following teachers academically, I was their support agains the administration as well.

I left that work and joined a new school, I don't want to go into the reasons but I'm writing this because I cant imgine how people can be passive when they have the power. Let me be clearer, today one of the teachers got a notification from the administration for a silly reason just beacuse the coordinator couldn't defend her. She felt the real meaning of opression, here I remembered what I used to do last year... I compared this situation with many situations I went through last year and how I used to protect my teachers and colleagues...

It seems we shouldn't tell the truth or fight for our rights we should be just like sheep to follow only !!

Love   happens   in a wink    
Without any blink
Keep your heart open
To make it rollin’
Round & round it goes
And never leave it blows
Till it lands &then flies
On the heart that
Carries the replies

A Second Visit

Fahed's initiative, of running from his school to come to see me & see Waleed , really left an impact on me... I had a mixture of complicated feelings.. So I started my own initiative ,which I called, NES Initiative Donation Campaign.. We started collecting money to donate them to Fahed and his friends... To my surprise, when the owner of my school knew about that, he decided to donate 5 computers to them..

We chose the day before Mother's Day to go and visit them... They were really over the moon when they saw us coming again, especially, Fahed... You can't imagine how that story have changed my view of life. I discovered that other things matter too..

This year, I will go somewhere else to help small children suffering from cancer..

They are monsters in human faces
Trying to hide their own traces

All they do is to fight
Behind their disguised sight

How horrible that look can be
When they are aiming at me

Time is running so fast
It can never wait or last

If you surrender to them
It means you are one of them

Never change your way
Stop… think then say

I will never give up
Though I’m fed up

I’ll continue to be me
Because it’s what I like to see

How great to feel the victory
When others find it a mystery
But when time goes by
Definitely you’ll sigh
And say oh…
That was the past
Thank God it didn’t last
No more monsters to cause me pain
And drive me insane

Nothing can be remembered now
Relax, pray & vow
Just enjoy the victory
Because no more mystery
