It is really hard to give up on something or someone we are so used to. For more than a month I’ve been struggling with blogspot. All I wanted is some more organization to be able to categorize my posts. I transferred to beta for that reason but unfortunately; not only I wasn’t able to do that, I was also faced with trail of other problems. I guess holding on to what is dear to us is not worth it when that thing keeps agonizing us. That goes to people too. Some of whom I have been patient with more than six years Therefore I decided to move to Wordpress, and to move on with my life on other accounts. Wordpress doesn’t deal with beta version as of yet, and as a result I can’t transfer my old posts ( they promised to do that in the near future). But regardless of that, I’m so disappointed with blogspot that I don’t really give a damn. I have decided as of today to start a new beginning, discarding all what bothered me in the past, no more Ms. Nice. And so I declare: Bye bye blogspot, bye bye selfish ignorant people….. Life is much more worth spending on my own happiness, than waiting for a miracle to change my situation. Fellow bloggers, my dear cyber companions in good times and bad; please visit the new me on The Ultimate, if the link dosn't work try www.3asal.wordpress.com and have a love break…..see you there.
An Update I just realized it’s my second year with blogspot, the nasty troublesome kid LOL

He: Ask me to nourish you with passion till eternity In mortal terms And beyond immortality Allow me to pave your pavement With riches of roses from robust estates Merciful to your fragile tread Accept the ample services Of a humble slave at your door Begging for your forgiveness Please; reign the jewel-studded peacock throne Of this extravagant heart And be its sole queen
But don’t ask me to leave I beg you This decision is not mine to take The oath was made by destiny You are my everything And I can’t stop Loving you
She: Sufferings of one lifetime surpassed eternity And suspended my mortal being for years Leaving nothing for immortality Your thorns bled the sole of my essence Whirling my path through a whirlwind Into a lost continent cursed with drought Where your ample services seized All what I have and swapped my identity To that of a beggar at your door Estranged in your lavish palaces Sad and empty in Solitary confinement
Set me free I beg you One mistake cost me a lifetime And contrived my destiny I’m left with nothing And your love is Su ffo ca ting Me
Katkoot is one year old today; my son brought her to me when he was traveling so I would take care of her while he’s gone. She was barely 3 months old at that time. I was a bit nervous at first since I’m not a cat person and don’t know how to deal with them. But by the time my son was back, Katkoot became my constant companion that I couldn’t do without. Here is a poem I wrote about our first encounter:
The glistening iris kept dancing Wondering who I was Knowing what's on her mind, I had to be patient Not to break her fragility After all, like me she was in a strange mansion Of different possibilities
I left her alone to explore my hospitality She cautiously tiptoed until she faced me Meowing, purring Entwining her gaze with mine, a thread
Of hazel sunshine voyaged me along the bay Of reminiscent far away shores Where I watched sunset Surrounding my image in his iris And vowed to reside there forever
But that was long ago And there was no forever
Now what kind of trick heaven was playing? The new kitten and I both reflected and eased
The banging of construction workers next door did not distract us Neither did the pains of the past
Two broken hearted, deprived One from mother, one from lover Now were united and eyes talked Refuge, although lips never moved
I smiled as she lingered Between my open arms And I whispered "You’re not alone"
Dedicated to the souls of the martyrs of the WTC on Tue. Sep.11,2001
I'm distraught with terrorism Being of my race is a dire shame Mixing flesh with steal and flame On behalf of Allah’s name
The God I’ve known is mercy Directing the "lost in course" But it is an act of hearsay To spread faith with devil’s force!
How dare they ruin my reputation How could they distroy great men's deeds It takes a second to demolish a nation That took generations’ sweat and heed
Make no mistake, the infamy's mine It’s my heard that has been boomed Be it now or after time Barbarism shall be doomed
I sadly grieve the innocent souls The prey of pusillanimity But twin towers shall always stay The emblem of liberty In spite of their cowardice In spite of their cruelty
Certainly infidelity To God’s endless civility
PS; I wrote this poem right after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the twin towers; I looked for it in my archives for two days and could not find it. Then I remembered publishing it on the Net on one of poetry sites and luckily; it was there. My original intention was to post it yesterday; but better late than never.
