I’m not a poet
And I know it
so don’t expect me to do it
I won’t write an epic poem or a haiku
And don’t wait for a sonnet
And I won’t even follow the rules and count the meters
I write words
I’m words lover
“I want to do something splendid…
Something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead…
I think I shall write books.”
― Louisa May Alcott
I think I should 🙂
Why not ?? I love books… My favorite thing to do is reading, and I looooooove writing; so why not ??
I was 13 when I first decided to write a book. I remembered grabbing a pen at 2:00 in the morning, and start writing. It was summer, my parents were asleep, and I felt that I had great things to say. and that I should be a writer (among other things 😉 )
Before that, I wrote my diaries, thoughts, and sometimes poems. But in that moment, all I could think about was that I was born to write. I wrote three pages or four, and maybe more about people and their problems. A 13 years old thought that she is capable of knowing, ” analyzing” and solving all what human beings consider as a problem ( Yeah, it was me). I talked about fear, loneliness, depress; then about money, poverty, and even death. I was sure that I am a good writer, and thought that by the age of 20, I’ll be already a famous one. Well, I’m 19 , and I’m not even close to be one.
Still, I’m a words lover-like I always say- and I’ll always be one 🙂 ❤ 🙂
Anyway, I sill believe that one day Insha’ALLAH I will write a book that wroth reading 🙂
I went to the moon
and I said: Why do people love you?
The moon smiled, and whispered:
When they look at me,
and more than that, they think
people dance, and so do I.
I make some happy, and some sad
but, they still love me
what do you think of that ???
If I could go back in time,
Meet my younger self,
What would I say ?
I’ll tell Me to live, not just exist
To try more, and do it
Stop wondering, and do it
Stop saying I can’t, and do it
Stop regretting the past, and do it
Stop being afraid, and please do it
My younger self will ask: what is this “ it” ?
I’ll stare and say: Stop asking, and just do it
🙂 🙂 🙂
One of my professors once asked us if we have ever been afraid… What a question ???
We looked at each other with a surprise and curiosity. Of course we’ve been afraid before, we are afraid now and perhaps we will be afraid in the future. The only difference is how we deal with this fear… Some will fight it and some will simply live with it; some will control it but some will let it control them.
I have my own fears (Yes, fears); not one or two ,but many. Like all the people, I control some of my fears, I try to fight and sometimes I just choose to live with it.
I think that the reason why our professor chose this question is to make us think of it, to have a Clear idea about it, and to take a decision that will change the way we live.
Fear is everywhere. there are different types of it and they all have an impact on our life. The way we deal with our fears is the one that makes the difference.
Waiting for your comments… 🙂
Today morning, I open the window and start looking at the beautiful blue sky. I saw an amazing view that made so happy. Beards were flying together like a family; a family that really care for each other.
For the first time in my life, I heard them singing.They made a beautiful harmonic music. They did not want to impress anyone; they have a song, they like to sing and they can sing ( that’s what they want to do). After looking at this meditating view, I felt relax and happy. I did not want to think about anything else; It’s nice to do that for a change; just look at the sky and try to slowly understand these unique and peaceful creatures.
I will never forget the sounds they were making and the way they were flying.
They made me smile…
