~It Could Happen to You~

A made up tale
Full of lies
Yet I was
Just searching for
Some hints of truth
Even if ..
Between the lines


It could happen to you
Lies that you sold
Will be played
Back to you


A made up tale
Will finally be
Narrated back
Again to you
Once there were
Broken hearts
From hurtful lies

It could happen to you
Lies that you sold
Will be played
Back to you


Now remains
Just your heart
Scattered in such
Purley price
Of all your lies

It could happen to you
Lies that you sold
Will be played
Back to you

~ unknown ~

Is that glow
Some of your radiance
Within far distance
Or  its illumination of my heart
That distracted my view and glance
In plethora of emotions
Which abstracted a compass 
To leave me without directions
So I'm up on on journey
Undecided if you are part of it
Or am I heading without you
My emotions are overflowing
Simply full of unknowns

~My Pen~


You are magnificently made 
Every curve are thought of 
Nothing is left to coincidence
You are made for a person
Like me
So I can write with you 
Pour my thoughts or emotions 
Right then only holding you 
You will dance
Through touch of my fingers 
You are not because I need you 
My emotions can be poured 
Wihout you
Yet you complete what can
Be forgotten
Capturing moments 
Where they are memories 
No ways to maintain or last
You are the keep of my thoughts 
All written through you 
Yet you enable others
To feel my moments
Just maybe 
They can appreciate what am I 
Even to get closer to this person 
Or perhaps empathise 
With scattered emotions 
Yet.. you were no longer needed 
Not essential to my existence 
I can live without you 
For there were 
Other means pouring my heart
I can shade my tears distantly
With other means or other ways 
But it can be done anywhere 
Not matter how long I desert you
You constantly embrace me
Back
You personalise what I am 
And how I feel 
So when I'm back 
At this hand hold
You silently love me 
Just like old times
No conditions 
I hold you and begin 
Writing with you
In others eyes
This is not romance 
As always you move and dance 
Never denying me not even once 
I wonder why 
It took me that long 
To see you 
Penning my thoughts with you 
Was all I needed right then 
And even right now
No one would pen like you do 
For words that pour out
Simply are my words in you
If that's not love then what it is!

A Crafted Soul

So many printed pages
My story within the lines
Words are not penned by me
Every curve of letters
Are specially formed
Within special palate
Where revision and editing
Are essential for pages
To get ever printed
So my life is not a fluke
Nor camouflaged
Soul within words
There is a mastermind 
Behind this crafted soul
What ever similarities we have
Me and you .. A unique story of its own

Speaking Up

Melinda Gates Melinda Gates Melinda Gates Melinda Gates once said   “A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.”

 I too believe finding one's voice or the courage to speak up is never been easy in particular when it comes to issues that seem to be a taboo. I recall at one time talking about women issue such as breast cancer was sesentive issue until when such personality such as Yuthar Al Rawahi and national cancer awareness group back then started to speak up about it. It only  became a national campaign after some years with their voices being preserver.

Without that initial courage to speak up  it might have remained a sensitive issue.

I was so shy when I was growing  up, though I was so passionate about writing however I always had special shell between me and others.

I was lucky to have met courageous role models such as doctor Zakia Al Lamky and later on Yuthar Al Rawahi who pushed me out of my comfort zone to use poetry as platform to speak up and join in their effort in spreading awareness on cancer.

Only then I began to find that to have voice that is bold enough to speak out is essential to create a better change. At times one can be criticised or laughed at but never underestimat e the power of a voice as it might seem that voice as unheard but being consistent it will prevail. This is what I have exprienced through using a platform such as poetry and now public speaking.

In general women prefer to take back stage in terms of speaking up, it is essential we encourage women to speak up as only issues related to women can be discussed when women themselves raise their concerns.

I would like to conclude that with social media nowdays it has provided a number of platform that one can use to speak up and vast opportunities to address social issues. To find your voice might not happen over night as Audre Lorde states ways to begin is  "Next time, ask: what’s the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it’s personal. And the world won’t end … And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had."
