It’s been almost a week into the New Year. Don’t tell me about all those resolutions, already flushed down the drain, I’m no longer a resolution believer. I’ve bought the 2016 chapter in my life’s book to an ending with a great get-away together with the people who carry loads of meaning in my life. We vacationed where we had exactly a year ago, when ringing in 2016 – the Caribbean – and it got me thinking. I remember the previous exactly one year ago vacation...

I am standing in the centre of a globe, filled with snow. All around me is a silence so silent, that even the snowflakes dropping are nothing to the comparison of the voice of my heartbeat. I am enclosed in these thoughts that refuse to also go silent. Why am I entrapped in this centre, thinking? In many parts of our globe, Christmas is near. And I see it in here, various sizes of footprints. Footprints of those migrants who probably dispersed from this path, huntin...

(Dedicated to the victims of the APS Peshawar school massacre 2014) Arrow-heads, Can never bend our vows, If in battle, It’s the pen we preach. Red spilled ink, Never flows, Without leaving a glow, A mark, Which lasts for eternity. And so when I walk, In midst of the December snow, The red petals, Bloom with your souls. I see it engraved in the universe, How some of us, Can never stop, But learn and teach....

The almost past event of the great divide which saw voters in the UK leave the EU contained us teens “whining” on social media – but after all we too have rights. Joshua Wilson, a student age 19, summed it up well: “Young people’s lives have been made harder, and the generations who voted for this will be dead by the time its implementation takes full effect.” Doesn’t the next generation get a voice to express its own future? Or does it really have to suffer?...

I see children today and my heart cries, For the children who live in fear, Not only because of playground bullies, But your missiles. For the children who, Despite your war, March with the world’s strength To make-shift schools. For the children, Who you deprive, The promise of a pencil.. But I still see the promise, In their souls And my heart cries, For the children, Who are lost in life. For the childr...

It’s a free world man, I can say anything I can. Everyone is able to raise a voice, Us girls can do anything like your boys. I am free to acquire any knowledge. To decide, whether or not, to go to college. Slavery, is something, from the past, But I tell you now, it will never last. You can’t trap, me in your cage I can sing on any stage. Even caged birds sing, You can’t shut anyone’s throat. Our voices, our words, are our freedom. Fre...

Teaching and learning go together. Teachers learn from their students, and students for obvious reasons their teachers. This cycle undergoes all around you, and isn’t just limited to classrooms. We teach and learn in almost every act we do daily. Look closely at your lives. You teach your siblings some things when being forced to help them do homework, and side by side set examples to them, teach them stuff as a role of your position as one of the elders at home....

Let’s repeat history, Rather than repeating mysteries. Be the ones to make a change, Rather than be the ones so strange. Let’s join together, Meet and greet. Instead of being unaware, Just asleep. How long can you close your eyes? Ignore that it matters, To even try. You are tired of my calls, All for one and one for all. Tired of my cries, But I will never stop despite my own sighs. Until my streams will row your dreams, And hu...

Death. So unexpected, Sudden, Yet, Inevitable. We all know, We will go, Yet we show, No flow. Never ready, To let go, When in fact, It looms upon us, A strike, Ready to blow. When time cannot be borrowed, You can no longer plough. Leave behind your sorrows, We all have to go. There is no hiding from it, Telling it to come tomorrow, No counting how long ago, Or how much of life, you have st...
