The meaning is lost
The tracks are fading with the rain
The world doesn’t know her name
Yet she lives
In the meaning they assign
The words get redefined
The prophet becomes a poet
And forgets her real power
It’s rare to empower
A child with a pen
Channeling the source within
So they cite her teachings
As source unknown
The monsters won’t find you here
My little one
As I hold you dear
The monsters won’t find you
In my belly where I protect you
And in a short while
I’ll see your smile
And I’ll know
The monster won’t find me
I rushed to meet the full moon
As I could finally see her face
A month of waiting could not be replaced
And as the moon turn around I knew
The rock looked much like you
My imaginary childhood friend
You survived this long
You were with me till the end
I wondered how your face was never changed
From Iraq to America
And somehow it did not feel strange
To befriend the moon
I made a video to briefly describe my book for those more visually inclined.
My book can be found on Amazon in the link below
Don’t forget to nurture your soul
You lost your pieces
Those that made you, you
And now you wander
Forgetting what you loved
She said she wasn’t hungry
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

I designed the cover using Photoshop and a photograph I had taken on a beautiful foggy winter day. Used KDP to self publish and here we are!
If you have any questions about self publishing, do not hesitate to ask!
This book is 10 years in the making, maybe longer.
Starting from the Iraq war and my childhood, to moving to America and living the best life I could.
It is a spiritual journey about war, hope, and inspiration.
Reviews so far describe it as:
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!
