Would your finger wish your hand harm?
Would your finger wish your arm harm?
Well-being is a choice
One that helps the body rejoice
For its master
Would you, a small part of this universe
On your larger self
No not at all
Well being comes from well wishing
Are not truly mine
I don’t feel the inspiration all the time
Like a river that has run dry
My fruits die
Wait for the dam
To break loose
I ask him
Does he continue to rely
On others to tear down the block
He looks at me with a shock
He’s had the tools all along
Feeling empowered and strong
He breaks the barriers
And writes a new song
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
My friend you survive
And the best is yet to come
There’s no end to your dreams
The trees shed their leaves
Trusting them to come back
I’ve relied on the sun to shine
The moon to come back
The stars to glow
The trees to grow
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

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!
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
For they think their dreams are too big to come true
