Today..

.. I met him
Today, I gloated..
Today, I looked him in the eye and smiled..
Today, I sat with him and made small talk..

I hated him
I despised his very existence
I loathed his wretched soul

He reeked with deception
He was full of treachery
He resembled deceit

Today I met him
and I made sure he knew
she was mine..

Today I met him..
and I shall gloat forever..
for forever started today..

in memory of one

i write this for you..
i write it for me..
i write it for everyone who has ever loved..
for anyone who has ever dreamed..

i write it for missed laughs..
i write it for the forgotten memories..
and the mislead wishes..

i cry out for inspriration..
that has passed its life time

i cry out for the dreams..
that have lost their way

i shout out for the words..
that never left my lips

i call back the things..
i wish i never said

i scream for eternity..
begging it..
to give me another day

i leave this place..
wishing i was not the same

and i look down on it..
wishing its not the end..

talking to the walls

have you ever wondered..
if life will ever stop throwing stuff at you..
if you will ever be content..

were you ever happy enough to stop comlpaining..
did you ever take a look around you..

why is human nature so hard to grasp..
so hard to understand..

i don't know where i am going with this...
its just that we weren't trained to deal with LIFE..
to deal with the REAL issues..

i'm not even talking about problems, or troublesome times..
i'm just talking about life in general..
the job..
wife..
kids..
car..
the...
the...
the...

the list goes on and on..

and so does life.. and it might leave you behind if you don't catch up..

at some point in your life you will find that you can't depend on anyone else to get you out of trouble...
maybe its pride.. maybe its logistics.. maybe its luck.. and maybe its you..

accept the help you are offered..
ask for it when it is needed..
and let pride be damned..

curiousity killed the cat.. or so they say..

ok.. so i just woke up from a 20 min cat-nap that was interrupted by the sounds of EXTREMELY loud music... and no, it wasn't the neighbours having a crazy party at 8 pm..

my lovely mother decide to entertain the kids (my little cousins ages 3.5, 5, 5 and 9) by starting a little dance competition.. so it was a bit surreal waking up to the only boy in the group attempting to break dance to guitara's "ya ghali".. it was cute nonetheless..

the cutest thing about kids is their ignorance to how difficult life really is.. to them is really is a walk in the park and they always assume it will always stay like that.. for instance, the eldest of the group as i was driving them to our house was talking to her baby brothers and sisters telling her about how when she gets married she wants to tell her husband to take her to australia and take her on this virtual reality ride she went on last year and that she will take their son Yousif with them (i love how he already has a name lol) and she talked about soooo many little minute details and you could sense in her voice that she truly believed that this is EXACTLY how the trip will go..

just listening to her and comparing her thoughts of a perfect holiday with her hubby and me planning my honeymoon just made me laugh at how innocent and ignorant we all start off.. i suppose its a blessing...

and as they say.. ignorance is bliss..

much love,
the frog
