Wishes

Would your finger wish your hand harm?

Would your finger wish your arm harm?

Would you?

Well-being is a choice

One that helps the body rejoice

For its master

Would you, a small part of this universe

Wish harm

On your larger self

Your whole?

No not at all

Well being comes from well wishing

Wish well

Dam

He said

My words

Are not truly mine

I don’t feel the inspiration all the time

Like a river that has run dry

My fruits die

And I

Wait for the dam

To break loose

I ask him

Why

Does he continue to rely

On others to tear down the block

He looks at me with a shock

He realizes

He’s had the tools all along

Feeling empowered and strong

He breaks the barriers

And writes a new song

 

 

 

Hope

You found a pothole

A place to start the crack

And the dream was born

Between the dark and dark

The whole was broken

And now you manifest

A dream unspoken

A place you can rest

Your head

For just

Today

My friend you survive

This way

And the best is yet to come

There’s no end to your dreams

There’s none

My Heart

I’ve relied on the sun to shine

The moon to come back

The stars to glow

The trees to grow

But

Each had a cycle and a rhythm

They didn’t know

How fast I want to keep on running

So my heart

I’ll have to start

With you

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!

Fools

Our dreams were so big

They thought us fools

Our path was so new

For their old tools

Yet we pave a foot after another

And we create new dreams for others

To follow

For they think their dreams are too big to come true

You Are The Savior

My pieces that gathered to make me

Often say

Help us to help you through another day

Never give up!

Transmutation

They said he was a victim

Of strangers and a system

Of things no one could control

But he chose to be an inspiration

Used his challenge as motivation

And proved it to them all

Now he guides the people

Teaching them of what they’re able

Expanding boxes and making them few

This hero is no stranger

This hero could easily be YOU
