Fuel For This Journey

Belly laughs, a child’s smile, a loving gesture, reconnecting with an old friend, knowing your loved ones are safe, connecting with nature, the sky, the sea, the trees. Loving until your heart bursts, knowing nothing is permanent, loving unconditionally, hearing a story from a child’s perspective, writing from the heart.  Getting kisses from your pets,…

No Regrets

Her intentions were clear from the start,But some people interpreted them wrong,Twisted them to fit their narrative. With their absence,Worry and bitterness escaped her life. Her peace of mind returned stronger than ever,And her heart opened even more. She never even gave it a second thought,Because she was certain she had tried her best with…

Where Angels Meet

I hope you’re at peace,And floating freely,In a place where sky’s the limit. I hope you know that we will never forget you,And your generous heart. I hope you’ve gathered all the love you’ve accumulated from this lifetime,And taken it to the place where angels meet. Dedicated to my mum’s uncle ♥ R.I.P Uncle Saleem.©ZeinaA.G

The Beauty of Writing

The Beauty of Writing: It’s a world you could easily dive into if you believe in the idea you’re trying to portray. Simple words lead to sentences and before you know it a story begins to unfold in front of your eyes. It’s a world you could test all your “what if” moments and watch…

Sunset Video

How’s everyone doing during the lockdown? I hope you’re all well. This is a video I took from the car a few days ago…Don’t worry I wasn’t driving. Couldn’t take a full video of the sun going down since we have a curfew now by 7:00p.m.I added the song from “Frozen2” The acapella version of…

Let it Go

I’ve felt the heartache and anger.I’ve heard the judgment and criticism.At one point I used to hold every word close to my heart. But now I learned how harmful such an action could be,It could ruin a person.That’s how dreams get butchered,And ambitions get killed. That’s how emotions drown,Without an outlet of any kind,They have…

A Beautiful Throwback♥

Throwback to 2005…I’m sharing snippets of a video which showed up in my Facebook memories. I hope I can explain this beautiful memory in a way that gives it justice. Late 2004 I contacted my aunt’s favorite Arabic singer through an email explaining how my aunt loved her. Also how we had spent my aunt’s…

Transparency

Her heart ached and raced from the thought of another loss nearing. The thick veil, which shaded her heart, began disappearing. She learned how fragile and bold she could be within seconds. She learned a lesson in transparency and being true to herself. Transparency means showing sides of herself she never knew existed. It meant…
