Year 2016 is apparently an ugly stain on the fabric of USA history and its people. It was a year of divisive politics, anger, controversial statements, and to some ‘missed opportunities.’ For me, however, 2016 taught me more about closeness than distance. Continue reading “The New World”
First of all, I know I have many Muslim friends and followers who will wholeheartedly disagree with what I’ll write. However, I think we live in an age (2017 already!) where we can share opinions without engaging in unnecessary personal strife.

Shalom, Salam to you my dear friends,
I would like to share a thought I had, perhaps many of you can identify with it. If you follow this amazing blog, you might’ve read my recent post which as Paul put it “generated quite a discussion.” Two nights after posting it, the comment section was overflowing with comments and I couldn’t fall asleep.

Ever since I can recall, there was a dream in my heart.
The day will come and I will climb the hill and reach the Land of Promise, the promise of quiet and peace. It is an atmosphere where the sun shines but does not burn, the wolves cry but do not scare. I will assemble the sheep in the meadow by the shrill of my whistle, walk them to the brook and comfort them with the song of my flute. I can visualize the birds chirping in the blue sky, a breeze stroking the tree’s branches like a harp adding harmony and magnificence to my tune. This melody exists only in my dreams for its scales are too delicate and sound too tender to be recorded and played outside of that Land. Continue reading “Song of Songs”
When the poet has an inspiration, when the scholar has an idea, when the journalist has a breakthrough, they feel an unbearable urge to express their findings to others. They will usually meditate over their lexicon and chose words painstakingly and meticulously, one by one. They will then weave the words to each other and blends them together in beautiful harmony. Behold, a piece of art! Continue reading “Plagiarism and Humility”
The atmosphere’s dusty
Dirt replaced oxygen
Drinking water is dirty
The road’s grease slimy
Ashes from fumes and engines Continue reading “Winter Rain”
“You shall know, that every blade of grass has his unique melody
You shall also know, that when the sheep graze in the meadow and hear the song of the grass, each lamb and goat joins and sings along with their own song Continue reading “The Song of the Universe”
Recognition is a basic human need. For the world is inhabited by 7.4 billion people, unless you do something to stick out, you can feel like an insignificant number in the Census Bureau. It is the need for acknowledgment that encouraged the philosophers and inventors, artists and doctors to do the great things they did. On the other hand, you can see people do weird stuff and act in strange ways, when you’ll examine the motivation you’ll find it’s be-the crave of attention, the thirst for recognition.

I usually write out of inspiration; I first have an idea, poem, senseless piece of thought-garbage etc., then an impulse forces me to grab a pen and inscribe the thought, and then perfect it and then post it here online for everlasting life. Not so today, though. Today, I don’t know what to write. I don’t even have an idea of which direction I want to take this post. I’m not writing to say something. I’m writing because I can’t remain silent! Continue reading “NEVER AGAIN!”
