I Looked Inside

I looked inside,Into my depth, My night I thought will never end. I tumbled over the things I couldn’t see. I tried to focus into the darkness,And that was when the stars appeared. ©Zeina A.G

Lessons Grief Has Taught Me.

Grief is never consistent, you could be fine for one minute and completely break down the next. For a moment, you could be the shoulder that everyone cries on . You could feel un-stoppable and courageous just for making it through a difficult situation. Then for the next few days you could break down from…

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…

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?

My earliest childhood memories revolved around sending salutations to you on a video tape all the way to Australia. You gave the best piggy back rides, the best supermarket cart rides. You hated when I glued to you…

Maybe…

To my Godmother, You’ve been gone for sixteen years already, that’s half my lifetime. Over the years I may have resented you a little for leaving too soon and missing so much of what goes on in my life. I may have blamed you for not being there because no one else understood me like…

Kindness

Sometimes when you look at this cruel world you wonder if it’s worth staying kind. You sometimes wonder if empathy and kindness always win, especially if your dreams are lingering.  Someday you’ll reach that place you’ve always dreamt of, and it will be untainted. It will be worth all the struggles because you’ll reach your goals…

Value of Words

One positive word can build a staircase to an entirely new world of hope and beauty. It can make you soar towards your dreams, while one hurtful word could repeat in your head for years. One deceitful word from someone you trust can cause a lot of harm. It’s discouraging to feel that this tiny word…
