Nightfall ! / Father.


How many young daughters and sons go to bed at night with tearful eyes and sad hearts searching for answers to be able to live their lives ?

Return before the nightfall,
Return before the sun goes down.

You left me alone yearning for you.
Father l am scared of the darkness.
l am scared of the silence and loneliness.

l am scared of tomorrow that soon will dawn.

Please, return before my patience expires.
Before l lose my mind,before hopelessness set me on fire.

l need you to help me to write my destiny.
Aren’t you the one who brought me to this world?
Aren’t you the one who raised me up ?

l deserve to know why you abandoned me?

Was it your selfishness,your failure or your misery ?

Our Wedding Anniversary ! / April 30th.


“Hilda” every day l live with you,
l live my life all over again.

Loving you taught me to appreciate,
our commitments and our togetherness too.

Love has brought us so far and love,
Will keep us as one till the day we depart.

I love you honey with every beat of my heart.
After all these years l still see you ,
Like l saw you in Baghdad university for the firs time.

With God’s grace that day will shine every morning anew .

To Live For A reason ! / Sacrifice to save.


Reading the biographies of great innovators is most fulfilling,inspiring,gratifying and motivating.Not only for the lessons a person can learn from them but for the depth of their conviction ,commitment and compassion to serve humanity without partiality.This is a true story about president Abraham Lincoln during the civil war.He had called for one of the soldiers under his command who had an excellent reputation .Lincoln needed the soldier to deliver a message to another battalion that was dangerously on the other side of the enemy.If both battalion could be coordinated to attack the opposition at the same time,their position would become a strategic advantage. When the young soldier arrived without disclosing the nature of the mission ,Lincoln explained that he had a very dangerous mission and asked the soldier if he would be willing to take such a commission.The soldier said.” I am willing to die for our cause.” Lincoln replied,” I have 25 thousand men who are willing to die for the cause,what I need is one who is willing to live for it.”
(( To sacrifice oneself is to die to save the lives of others.Sacrifice is also to save oneself to help the others to live.Jalal Michael Sabbagh.http://gravatar.com?jmsabbagh86@gmail.com ))
