Falling Higher


The sands of time are muddy

with thoughts so bloody

when you try so hard to be somebody

and all those around you are just plain snobby

just stand up and do it, buddy

for no one else will be there for you; when you are on the floor; acting so damn silly

Dr. Ahmed Alkhuzaie

You!

You are my creed
You are more than weed
You are the one that always made me heed

You’re like a tweed, sweeter than a sugar cane, tastier than melon, mellower than a pint o’ Mead

With a heart as big as heavens itself, attitude hotter than hell, when you make me plead

Longing for you; when the night is young; even when it’s done;
Come here in my arms; back to me to where you belong; where you exist, and to where you will always be pleased…

Dr. Ahmed Alkhuzaie

Proportional encounters

Life is full of contradictions; whether we like it or not… There’s always the big and there’s the small; there’s the high and surely the low…  yet what really amazes me are the double standards…Yes, the fact that it’s alright for someone to think or to do something; yet it is not for someone else…   That happens when people really think high of themselves; I mean higher than they should think… Logically, the intolerable initiative  that it’s OK for to insult B, but it’s NOT OK for B to insult A. Of course, B and A can be replaced with many different races, religions, etc.

We are thoughtful drivers, others in traffic are mere jerks; or; Men are Jerks, Women are victims; and my favorite; females checking a man’s butt is acceptable, males doing the same will be labeled as pigs! Men having females friends are out of the line; women sleep with their exes is insecurity! apparently it’s a never ending list, and sometimes it’s better to let go… not to go coco.

Imagine a girl approaches you and says that her friend would like to meet you (what is more thrilling than that)? On the other hand, if your male friend approaches a girl and tells her that you want to meet her, she might just be turned off by your lack of confidence and lack of ability to approach her directly by yourself.

When Joseph Stalin said “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic” he was talking about the two types of people in life; leaders and followers… to him cattle is just a number… even when I thought I could role that out of this equation; I failed… both are human beings; yet labeled once more!

When I thought I could discuss this; I proved myself wrong; it’s our nature I believe (to a certain degree), but sometimes with some it’s just too much… Yes, I agree a person should believe in himself and posses a high self esteem; but not to extreme degrees cause that’s not even arrogance; but a plain sickness.

So, stay healthy 😉

No matter where we are; and no matter where we end up to be… it will always be five o’clock somewhere… despite the fact that we have time zones… Irony? or another contradiction?

Lifting shadows off a dream


20120330-152412.jpg

Standing on a foreign ground; among a strange crowd, in a queue with people from all around the planet being asked where we came from; and where are we going from here… jokingly I said “no one ever knows” which made me do nothing else but long for the warm sunny island I belong to; surely; makes me long for the people who made this island worth a while; those who gave life a meaning in the first place; with the good and the bad; yet once a person is isolated from all that; HOME will appeal as it never did before; with all the good and bad… the way we are; or were in some cases!

From where I stand; seems to me that I made a big deal getting angry over some silly stuff; or maybe overreacted towards something or someone; and the other way around; I heard some words that shouldn’t be said; and was treated wrong and never reacted properly… All that matters as much as a juicy Steak to a vegetarian now… It’s all been said and done…

From where I stand; I somehow am trying to oversee all that for its fading and what’s clear  are the good that I was done by; the sweetness and tenderness that I came across… has anyone noticed that In times of agony;  smallest of gestures have the highest value anyone could imagine? It is; and in times when I was down and literary wounded; a friend came into my life; a true one that stood by me and believed in me; that now, no matter what came our way; what was done and what was said; I chose to lift these shadows off such a beautiful dream and remember it without any rotten apples; for I chose to see it the way I want to; beautiful and bright…

We all know what memories can bring; so, no matter where life takes us; and no matter where we end up to be… I’ll always have this image in my heart; of young, happy people… even if it wasn’t… that’s the deference between a photograph and a painting…

I will follow the stars no matter how far they are;

The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away

“The Religion before Allah is Islam” (19 Aal-i-Imraan)

Though I believe there’s only one way of being a Muslim, many would disagree for each wants to worship the Lord as their scholar sees fit. I think (as per the Quran verse mentioned above) that Allah taught the profit his way so that he can teach us; yet there are hundreds of scholars disagreeing on matters that were settled more than a thousand years ago!

I think we all noticed how fragile these political alliances are, and how these moody rebels reinvent their standards and beliefs regularly and as it serves their ambitions. Why is that our scholars’ sees the Quran as the leather cover that hugs the sacred texts, and hand chopping of thief’s? Why have they avoided that part about mercy and kindness? Why don’t they follow the footsteps of the profit? When he prayed for salvation for those who stoned him; for those who lost their way, instead of cursing them and pray the Lord “the merciful” to shake the earth beneath their feet; to vanish them from his earth; to burn them in an eternal flame! That’s not the Islam I know.  The one I know is a different one; a forgiving one; a loving one…

They blame the west for their corruption! They never alleged themselves responsible for the rearward direction the nation is driving towards; and if they are smart enough to blame the west; why haven’t they changed the stated facts and beat it! So much for thinkers I’d say.

“Mischief has appeared on land and sea because of (the meed) that the hands of men have earned, that (Allah) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil).” (41 Ar-Room)

“For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Allah does not change a people´s lot unless they change what is in their hearts. But when (once) Allah willeth a people´s punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.” (11 Ar-Ra’d)

I don’t even have to explain these two self-explained verses; for they clearly state that it’s all in people’s own free well to make their lives as good as heaven on earth or a fiery hell hole… instead of blaming others; God the Almighty gave us a manual on how to make things happen…  want peace and justice? Start with your own self, then demand it upon you; if not… we’ll have another so called Arab Spring on our hands.

No I don’t claim to be a wise man, A poet or a saint; I’m just another man who’s searchin’ For a better way;

21 days later

Life in general is full of journeys; and mine in particular is as well… Many faces have come and gone; and many will come and go… yet some can’t be forgotten… Somehow that’s what I hate the most… Goodbyes!

It’s time to hit the road and once again I leave you all behind, it’s time to say goodbye my friends, I’m glad you stayed until the end… Hoping the time spent is a time well spent… Although I know that one day I’ll be back again… and until I do… I’ll be thinking of you…

Yes it’s time to say aufwiedersehn, sayonata and ciao my friend, you¹ll always have a place within my heart;

Have Life will travel…

20120409-174604.jpg

Many looked for knowledge that explains the meaning of life… apparently it is whatever you want it to be!

We only live once, and only this time to do whatever we want to; a hundred years later, no one would memorize the stupid oversights you achieved, so make a fool of yourself while you still have the chance cause if you waste your life trying to be the coolest kid around, you will never be happy with yourself and lets face it; no one else will!

Live life to the fullest, dare the adventures coming your way… And “have life will travel” my friend…
