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…

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”…

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…

Renewing Masterclass.

“Writing Doesn’t Have to be Scary.” R.L Stine “You’re gonna let one opinion stop you writing?” Judy Blume. I wanted to announce,with great pleasure, that I’m renewing my Masterclass subscription tomorrow. Mostly because it has been a treasure that has kept me writing through the darkest days. A year ago, I had just gotten a…

Where is the Lebanon I Once Knew?

Originally posted on 24/7 Online Blog:
PS: wait for the pics, it’s a slideshow “Where are you from?” People I met in Australia would ask. “Lebanon.” I would proudly reply, regretting the next couple of questions. “What’s your country like?” “How was your experience at high school?” “How are the people in Lebanon?” ETC Now I…
