CAN A HUMAN BEING ?


Give up envy ,hate,lies and deceit?

The core of our so called civilized

societies corruption beside the greed!

To wish his opponent peace,when they meet?

Give up narcissism,deviation and cheat?

To help the weak when they are in need?

Not to let them be consumed to fleet!

To see the hungry starve while’

the luscious food enjoys to eat!

Give up one set of the two rules he holds,

The bitter one for the others ,but for

himself he implies the s w e e t!

Give up his partiality toward winning  and defeat?

Build for himself a mansion ,but refuses

his brother to own even a shaky suite!

Give up pride ,falsehood and with

Kindness the others treat?

Stop burning the wheat and the weed,

it is wise to separate the two

before igniting the heat.

Give up gossip,critique and adoring the power seat?

To stand up for justice ,fairness ,not like a coward  retreat?
Give up ugly swearing ,malediction the bad sleet.

Can man stop destroying the beauty of life with his ,

carelessness , selfishness ,poisonous interests ?

Can he accept reasoning ?

C a n    he    h e e d …?

He said.”darling you are my all in the whole world and in the world we build together’

you are my precious love,without you l can’t be.

life would be unlivable, like a deserted garden without flowers,birds or a brook.

l appreciate your sacrifices . But what about mine?

For a better life l took the risk and l took my chances.

l did everything to provide you and the kids with the best

opportunities which l never had in my youth.

l too left everything behind exactly like you did.

You know why l left,l was oppressed ,there was no chance to advance,

Things have changed back there ,you know the truth.”

She said”the changes were so sudden l couldn’t help it,

but to complain and to cry.

He.” trust me honey everything will be okay.

Birthday-Everyday !


OUR HEARTS BEAT TO REMIND US THE PASSING OF TIME.

l and my wife took a tour to Big Bear Lake to celebrate my birthday which was yesterday.In the bus, sitting across from us a nice lady heard our conversation about the birthday and said commenting on the occasion.”I don’t celebrate my birthday any more ,just to feel older? l don’t know why people still do?. “My lady ,Birthday is a  reminder trying to tell us that a whole year has passed by since our last one.What kind of year was it? What did you achieved of your hopes and dreams? What deeds did you accomplished ?How many friend did you make happy? ,how many you made sad or mad ? Did you tried to mend the gaps?

Birthdays are not by giving gifts.Birthdays are not to spoil your children to harm themselves.Birthday is to remind us of those who helped us to be who we are.We get out of life as much we put in it.Jalal Michael SAbbagh.http://gravatar.com/jmsabbagh86@gmail.com
