حكاية عشق ابدية


376162_634722876557149_295443682_n

ذات ليلة مخملية سمراء مقدسية

دنا القمر من القمر

تعانق القمران

وبلهفة العشاق تبادلا النظرات والأشواق

11228518_10207072886413450_615343303161575462_n

همس البدر في اذن من يهوى

كفكفي الدموع يا حبيبة

قد أطَّ لمرآها عرش الرحمن

ولآهاتك الحرَّى المهيبة

اهتزت الأكوان

946021_216223151835321_35775858_n

بالامس يا أحبتي

روى لنا الدهر حكاية

عن كونٍ هام بقمرٍ

عن قصة عشق ابدية

بين الخالق والمخلوق

31618_506001709434415_284628689_n
بين الارض وبين السما

طأطأت رؤوسها الكواكب وسجدت النجوم

بين الصخرة والفردوس

قد مد حبل من نور

68363_363362730416586_40859279_n

هنا قبَّلت الثرى الثريا

هنا صلى الانبياء

هنا عهد هنا وعد

هنا سعد وحبور

378868_374095109349126_835145121_n

هنا طافت ارواح الشهدا

مع قرع للطبول

هنا ترتيل الملائك

تقتفي اثر الرسول

946699_663505147008392_292046288_n

هنا صوت الحق يعلو

وهنا الباطل يفنى

وظلام الظلم يُمحى

هنا جبر للكسور

Eternal Love Story


376162_634722876557149_295443682_n

Once upon a velvet night … A Jerusalemite night

The moon approached the moon

Two moons embraced

Like, true lovers, they gazed and exchanged tenderness

11228518_10207072886413450_615343303161575462_n

The moon whispered to his beloved’s ear

Sweetheart, let me dry your tears

Your tears shook the Throne of the Most Sublime

Your dignified sighs shattered the cosmos

946021_216223151835321_35775858_n

Yesterday, my beloved

Epoch told us a story

About a Universe

Who fell in love with a moon

A never ending love story

Between Eternal and mortal, Infinite and finite

31618_506001709434415_284628689_n

Heaven and Earth entwined

Planets bowed down, and stars prostrated in awe

Between a rock and Paradise

A rope of light unfurled

68363_363362730416586_40859279_n

Here, galaxies kissed earth

Here, prophets prayed in adoration

Here, an oath… Here, a promise

Here, joy, bliss and delight

378868_374095109349126_835145121_n

Here, souls of martyrs flew above

Buoyant, to drumbeats below

Here, the chanting of angels

Following footsteps of the messenger

946699_663505147008392_292046288_n

Here, the sound of truth is loud and powerful

Here, falsehood is defeated

Here, darkness of oppression does not stand a  chance

Here, hearts are consoled, wounds are healed

A Tear for the World


24500_340550041306_306817171306_4005589_3612779_n

I feel your throbbing pain

O World

I see your bleeding soul

I cringe, I go insane

 

1174529_425899854197209_1035716381_n

Weary, I retreat

To the land of barren tears

Where no man has ever been

In silence, I weep

 

34859_408249576306_306817171306_4944038_8122620_n

“O dear God”

I whisper

“How can such a small heart,

Take all this pain?”

I am so blessed


I Am So blessed

156658_475574579153909_326150038_n - Copy (3)

I am so blessed

Being a Palestinian

Being a refugee

For over fifty years

I am so blessed

I wasn’t in the tank

With an army uniform

Killing and destroying

To frighten people away

It was a barren land

Later on to say!

I am so blessed

  181525_490311496306_306817171306_6471255_6681421_n

Being under curfew

For most of my life

I am so blessed

I wasn’t with the army

Erecting high walls

Shooting at civilians

At every check-point

I am so blessed

 2825_10151003127801977_1651548105_n 

Losing my father

In one of their raids

I am so blessed

That it was not I

Flying planes of terror

Firing that missile

Then Laughing and rejoicing

The mission was a success

I am so blessed

536496_316075665126141_1322425755_n

Watching my brother

Being taken away

I am so blessed

I wasn’t one of those

Kicking till he bled

From his nose and head

I am so blessed

 12279_373475072746546_1952707943_n

Burying my baby

With a bullet in her heart

I am so blessed

I wasn’t that soldier

Who took a baby’s life

Nor was I his mother

Who welcomed him a hero

When coming back home

I am so blessed

Sleeping in a UN tent

Shivering in the freezing cold

I am so blessed

I wasn’t that settler

Who occupied my home

Justifying massacres

With a “PROMISE SO DIVINE”

Then, tossing and turning

 All night long

Wondering what’s wrong

Haunted by his deeds

Searching like mad

For a long lost peace

Which he can’t find

I am so blessed

294646_394995967234110_805017022_n 

 Holding David’s stone

In my little hand

I am so blessed

I wasn’t giant Goliath

With mass-destruction might

Seeing himself invincible

With no hope in sight

00001aa

Who is there?


Oh human

Can’t you see!

I am precisely like you

I don’t like being humiliated

I am no one’s doormat

I’m person in my own right

574526_422986501115749_91230857_n

When I was born

I was born innocent

Happy and free

14x
And I want to live

A normal life

With dignity

Wouldn’t you?

20x
I realise there is a dawn

Waiting to be born

And that… after hardship… passes away

Ease will come to life… very soon

189921_313537168759381_1711714508_n
But… they inflicted so much

Pain and cruelty

Upon this little girl

And upon her homeland

Palestinian family cry after their home was demolished by Israeli forces in the East Jerusalem2
The world is watching

Eyes open wide

In bewilderment

And disbelief

307392_349527611822383_55448004_n
“What we are watching

Is a fiction movie

It’s not really true”

69203_455890754483019_357871489_n
While in exile

Puzzled… I agonize

Wiping tears off my saddened face

Searching around

Any one there?

This is My Palestine

Looking up… into sky

Did You hear my cries?

Did You witness the crime?

In Palestine, Something Miraculous Happens

Suddenly

Knock… knock

A gentle tap

Yes, coming

Who is there?

34203_402557296306_306817171306_4797861_1543929_n
Hope is here

Smiling at my heart

Standing by my door

In Palestine, Something Miraculous Happens


By Nahida- Exiled Palestinian

 

In Palestine 

 
Terror reigns
Psychopaths claim dominance
and a “G-d given right to rob, kill and maim
 
In Palestine
Terror reigns
 
Smiles … wiped of innocent faces
 Little girls weep
Little boys butchered
Babies are slain
In Palestine
Terror reigns
Criminals are the law
They bomb, they shoot, they smite
With mini-nukes they wipe life out
In Palestine
Terror reigns
Without “lamp-shades”, bodies mutilated
Without “cremationovens”, toddlers charcoaled 
 
Without “gas-chambers”, Tiny tots… exterminated
In Palestine
Terror reigns
Aggressors crowned with victim-hood”
Their victims… “anti-Semites”, “filled with hate” !
They murder then cry
Sneer as they lie
They twist and deceive, innocence they proclaim
 Apart from themselves, Everyone to blame
 
In Palestine
 
Primary colours no longer three
 Red and green, black and white
Freedom painted red… Love is green
Sacrifice and faith black and white
In Palestine
 Out of the ashes humanity rises tall
 Resilience leaves you you speechless
Courage takes your breath away

and in contrast 

Bottomless cowardice

As never seen before

In Palestine
Something miraculous happens
 The more people die
The more hope is born!
Hope… Astounding
 Bequest of the Divine
 
Seen in every face 
Written with every name
 

What Really Matters!


When all gets dark

And life loses its colours
When evil tightens the grip

And the wicked leads the way

When fall falls before its time

and frost grows around
When your heart is torn and worn,

and you feel like throwing it away

Don’t give up, just wait a little while,
Turn your back
Close your eyes and
Remember what you have forgotten
Try to find if you’ve lost, 
Apologize if you’ve hurt,
Forgive if you have been hurt,
Caress if you’ve been deprived,
Pursue, if you have dream
Share if you’ve been bereft,
Giggle if you’ve been aggrieved,
Embrace if you’ve been shun,
Give if you’ve been denied,
Excel if you’ve been scorned,
Feed if you’ve tasted hunger
Rejoice if you’ve felt somber
Accompany those who know


Hold on tight to those you love,

Cherish those who care for you,

Because life is too short
and it is full of wonder
