I weaved a nest
Out of the things they threw away
And I made a home for my children to say
He created an earth so large
Hoping one day
The Gods will appreciate
The waste they threw a way
The Garden of Eden was no place to stay
I know your pain
I, too, had to do the same
To free myself and children alike
To start fresh
A new life
I too had to be
Don’t forget to nurture your soul
You lost your pieces
Those that made you, you
And now you wander
Forgetting what you loved
Can you truly be you
No make up
To alter your face
Can you find it
In your heart
To let them see
Who you truly are
For no other has been made
In exactly the same way

If you have any questions about self publishing, do not hesitate to ask!
This book is 10 years in the making, maybe longer. It is about war, hope, and inspiration. Starting from the Iraq war and my childhood, to moving to America and living life the best I could.
Reviews so far describe it as
“One of a kind”
“Can’t stop reading it”
“Such an interesting story”
To list a few
I am overwhelmed with community support and so grateful to be a part of this world.
A world where an Iraqi woman can have a voice. This is so much bigger than a book being published.
