You are God's MasterpieceNahida Izzat Salem-News.com
Beware, don’t be distracted by signs on the way, they’re only means to get you by, don’t mistake them for your aim, otherwise; your harvest will merely be big disappointments and flat empty dreams...
(LONDON) - Yes… you
Those magical eyes
When you’re happy smiling
And even when you cry
This mind of yours
A universe within
By its very existence
But more so, its awareness
That it exists
That big warm heart
So loving, full of passion
Without even knowing how or why
Can you keep a secret?
If you promise,
I’ll share it with you…
Did you say yes?
Ok then… listen carefully
Your desire for love is an in-built yearning
To be with the One Most Loving, God
Your hunger for justice is the innate longing
For the Supreme Just, God
Your search for peace is truly hunting
The Only Source of Peace, God
Your secret wish for eternity is merely a deep aspiration
For the Eternal God
Your profound fascination of beauty is purely awe and wonder
Of the One Most Beautiful, God
Your appreciation of all creative arts is simply admiration
Of the One Most Creative, God
Beware, don’t be distracted by signs on the way
They’re only means to get you by
Don’t mistake them for your aim
Otherwise; your harvest will merely be
Big disappointments and flat empty dreams
A heart full of sorrow confused and jeopardized
Carry on along the path
Your home and final destination
Is the One and Only, God
For… you are God’s very own
“To smile when confronted with the most severe oppression, is an act of Resistance rooted in unparalleled beauty.”
~ Jonathan Azaziah"And I, a Palestinian from occupied Palestine, refuse to share
my homeland with Zionist colonizers"
~ Reham Alhelsi
"Facts" do NOT need laws to enforce, validate or defend them, what they require is research to examine their narrative and correct it for better accuracy and understanding.
“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”
Special thanks to Uprooted Palestinians
Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.
She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles, and Palestine the True Story.
Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
If you like poetry and are intrigued by the notion of learning more about Palestine, you can visit Nahida's blog Poetry for Palestine for more of her writings; prose, poems, letters and dialogues.
