You.

Maybe you were that warm gust of wind,That embraced me on a cold lonely night, Or maybe you were that stranger who smiled sympathetically,When I felt tears stinging my eyes. Maybe you sent me a sign,In a cloud or a sunset. Maybe you were that bird that perched near me,And then flew right after I…

Faith

A soft sob echoed through the house as she mumbled, “God! Are you there? I’m not sure if you’ve been listening today.”  Silence answered her while her mind kept rewinding the events of that day. Silence can break hearts especially when the world closed down on her and brought her down to her knees. She…

The Room.

She kept everything tidy, And in chronological order. The windows and the walls were all tinted black, She liked the curtains tightly shut. In a place that was truly hers, She knew nobody else belonged there. It was like an un-accessible room, A grim place where nobody could enter. A place where the memories floated,…

Clouds

“Through tsunamis, earthquakes or a broken spiritWhen you scream with no voice, you know I will hear itYou know I will come running when I feel the Earth moveThrough a flood, toil and blood, through the tides of terrorFeel my love, feel my love, let it breathe foreverYou know I will come running when I…

I Searched For You

I searched for you in total darkness but you were nowhere to be found. So I gave up and searched for you in other people…I still couldn’t find you. I searched for understanding and I couldn’t find it. I tried everything I could to search for a purpose. I tried everything in my power to…

The Veil

Stuck in a whirlwind of memories and nostalgia she noticed the world continued to move forward without her. Wherever she went, she wore her grief as a veil sometimes it was so thick that she couldn’t see past it. She knew her grief would come in waves and when the veil was transparent, she noticed…

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…

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…
