Warrior

There’s a little girl sulking in the corner wondering why everything is her fault. She’s sitting in the dark wondering why she keeps getting pressured into growing up so fast. She’s wondering about all the fairytales and the stories she’d been told whether they exist. She’s wondering why the world is on her shoulders. This…

Things that lurk beneath the surface.

I find it quite fascinating what hides between our words, our concerns…What lurks beneath the surface of that mask we wear everyday…Is it fear, kindness, hatred, a certain grudge, grief or despair? Are we just passing time trying not to miss the people who have left us? Are we all just trying to survive the…

Golden Heart.

I own a golden heart that does not beat, Inside is a picture that’s about to speak, It’s tiny, but shines like the sun so bright, Even through all the darkest nights. This heart is fractured in so many places, It affirms that the inside is what counts.You can find “I Will Always Love you”…

Never Stop Believing.

That tiny voice she thought was too squeaky.Some described it as intense,But it didn’t matter,Because it surpassed everyone’s expectations…Including hers. ©ZeinaA.G

The Risk.

You’re risking yourself to be out there,Risking that part of your heart,Which you promised to protect.You’re risking the chance for the world to know you.Risking the chance of being seen struggling,And then failing.However, there is a possibility for the messages you believe in to spread,And for your experience to become lessons. Juggling between leaving everything…

New Direction.

Numbness is like floating on water with your face towards a vast sky . You can see everything moving above you while having no control over it .You don’t say anything or try to change it. You can hear the cheering noises all around you in a blur because your ears are under water but…

Goosebumps.

While searching through old photos at my grandma’s today I found this photo of my late aunt. It’s the first time I’ve seen it. I think it was taken while she was performing onstage. I love it so much. There’s some kind of power in it that I can’t really explain. So happy I found…

Birthday in Heaven.

After all these years it’s still hard to write about this but I know my heart and soul is affected by this deep grief right around this time each year for a reason. It’s my late aunt’s birthday month, the first person who provided a safe place for me to dream big and my first…

Walking Alone.

I know it’s scary to walk alone,The world may seem darker when it gets lonely.But walking alone is better than walking with people who try to stab you with their words.Walking alone is better than being around people who disregard your dreams.So walk away with no regrets… ©ZeinaA.G

Through the Eyes of a Child.

Through the eyes of a child you’d notice a humongous world.A world that holds magic in every undiscovered corner.Everyday life would be a constant mystery that keeps surprisingly unfolding into different layers which leave you speechless.You’d run and chase magic until you’re out of breath without any plans of stopping.You’d jump fearlessly into deep waters…
