Heaven Pools


When I was swimming with my grandson the other day, he kept on trying to drink from the pool water. I told him to be careful and not to drink that water because it contains chemicals. He stopped, but he looked utterly disappointed and unconvinced.

Every now and then I would catch him trying to lick the water again, so I would remind him.

We continued playing for a while, then suddenly he said: I wish I would die!
Shocked I asked: but habibi why?

He said: Because I want to be able to drink from the pool when I swim, and in heaven pools don’t have chemicals!



We Don’t Bow Down


 

So this is how they made the desert bloom?

Smudging our lives with colour of doom

Maim, slay, defame night and day

Choke our world charcoal and grey

Suck our joy with a mushroom cloud

Shred our smiles, devilish piercing sounds

Mutilate children with dead glazed eyes

Slash, tear and torture earth and skies

Then wonder why we are not grateful

Why don’t we shower them with love they so crave

What kind of thoughts go through their minds

Why so blind to truth before their eyes

Will they ever come to understand

Laws of nature never knows favours

No one above, no one below

Every action has an opposite reaction

Equal in measure, opposite in direction

Each and every soul reaps what it sows

Defiant we remain until we’re free

Scrape out the dust of war, no more grey

All shades of beauty, paint back our life

Rainbows in the sky, meadows lush and green

A day of jubilation, nothing like they’ve ever seen

Gratitude


Thank You for every flower I’ve ever seen

Thank you for every rose I’ve come by

Thank You for every smile I’ve ever had

Thank You for every tree I’ve ever climbed


Thank You for every hand that held my hand

Thank You for every heart that touched my heart


Thank You for every compassionate tear

Thank you for every twinkle in my eyes


Thank you for every grain of sand

Thank You for every stone laying by
