The Brotherhood of the World Award — October 20, 2017

The Brotherhood of the World Award

That’s the first time I’ve seen this award. Firstly, CONGRATS to Just a platypus for receiving this award. Secondly, THANKS for nominating  me. 🙂  It’s been a while since I did one of these. As usual we’ll start with the rules.

Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
2. Answer the questions sent to you.
3. Nominate around ten bloggers.
4. Create your set of questions for your nominees.
5. List the rules and display the Brotherhood Of The World logo in your post and/or blog.

Questions for me to answer:

1. How well do you think your blog represents who you are as a person? Do you think it’s easier to express yourself and personal details when a blog links directly to the real you, or when it’s anonymous?

My blog partially, represents me as the person I am. I think both ways the choice is yours, how much you allow yourself but I do think it is comparatively easier when you’re anonymous.However, I’ve seen people do it better otherwise.

Appreciating nature and making sure people don’t loose hope.

Best way- Saying the Shahadah before I die and that I have a clean heart.

Doubting myself and thinking the change I want in me will almost never come.

5. What’s your favourite time of year, and why?

Day 20: Wish —

Day 20: Wish

Here is a poem I wrote for a friend a couple of years ago. When I read it now it seems funny. But back then it had power. However, I wouln’t want to explain the point behind it because then it won’t be that fun. 😛

Time changes. Doesn’t it? Sometimes I WISH I could go back to being a child. I say this because this poem reminds me and a friend of mine of a cartoon we used to watch when we were kids. It was called Dragon Tales. Ring a bell? These day what I try to do is make my siblings watch it instead or other horrible cartoons they have these days. Good ol’ days. Sigh. Well here goes! 😀


I wish I wish with all my might,
To have a heart as pure as the morning light.

In this era of ignorance, the darks we must fight,
Forever, let our good deeds shine through the night.

Violence,hatred, racism, major problems,
Not one, not two, maybe even more than five,

Continuously and permanently add misery,
to our dear little life.

In the lane of hopelessness we can take flight,
But questioned we’ll be for being able to fight.

I watch joy be overshadowed with sadness,
In the silence of the night,

With all the inexplicable thoughts,
I yet not let my hope take flight.

I still wish and wish with all my might,
To shine with hope as beautiful as the morning light.

Day 7: A lost key — October 7, 2017

Day 7: A lost key

With time her thoughts became as dangerous as poison and as dark as a grave, leading her  into a maze with no way out.

Except for one, that was to unlock the door of hope.With the lost key being poetry?which she had forgotten. Yet she picked up the pen filled with ink as dark as her heart and spilled poetry. Letting the white paper soak in her thoughts, emotions and misery and lighting her soul.

Day 5: Time — October 5, 2017

Day 5: Time

Today was that day when I was first confused of whether I will go for poetry or prose. Then I started writing and kept switching between the two mainly with three different ideas. Well in the end you get this.

You’ll enjoy the poem if you follow the tune. 😀


Tick tock, tick tock,
Silence is present to only mock,
Tick tock, tick tock!

Inner angel and devil want to talk,
As thoughts in my head start to walk.

Positivity is to be at all cost, blocked,
As negativity gives a mighty hard, knock.

Tick tock, tick tock,
Silence is present to only mock,
Tick tock, tick tock!

Sweet memories erased as if white chalk,
Whilst darkness and sad memories begin to stalk.

Into a puddle of fears my heart drops,
The intensity of pain is no more a shock.

Tick tock, tick tock,
Silence is present to only mock,
Tick tock, tick tock!

Fragments of hope mysteriously start to flock,
Saving the heart from being forever locked.

Tick tock, tick tock,
Silence is present to only mock,
Tick tock, tick tock!

Day 4 : Candy wrapper — October 4, 2017

Day 4 : Candy wrapper

Mrs. Ahmed carefully placed the polished diamond ring into the ultramarine velvet case, smiling to herself as she pictured her daughter’s wedding. However, a few seconds later, thought of her daughter moving out of the house into another city made her heart ache. Her mind was entangled in deep thoughts as she tried to mentally prepare herself for the big change. The sound of her husband broke the train of saddening thoughts and she headed to towards the bedroom. Thus, the last light still on in Mr. Ahmed’s house was turned off.

In the morning Mr. Ahmed was awoken by a loud scream. He jumped out of his bed and toward his wife who was now sobbing. The room that was silent a few minutes ago was now filled with Mrs. Ahmed cries. ‘Ahmed, it’s not here, I swear to God I the locker was locked last night, I…I can’t believe it.’ She paused. ‘How could this happen? What are we going to do?’ Her face had now turned read and her eyes swollen. Mr. Ahmed tried to calm her down and he quickly phoned the Inspector.

Within half an hour the Inspector had arrived with a team of two. After being explained that the precious item had been missing. The Inspector said to them, ‘Well this ain’t surprising.’ Mr. Ahmed was alarmed and had to ask, ‘What do you mean Inspector? ‘The inspector began, ‘This is the third case this week. There is a thief going around stealing different things. Mostly people have lost electronic gadgets, money and bicycles. But I’m sorry this happened to you Mr. Ahmed. We’ll try our best to track down the thief.’

The inspector was about to say something when his colleague approached, ‘Sir, we’ve found a clue that might help us catch the culprit. There is a red candy wrapper. ’A smile came across the Inspectors face as he ordered, “Well, get to it then.’ Mr. Ahmed was about to ask when the Inspector explained, ‘Sir, don’t worry we’ll track the teen thief. Apparently, this time the thief was in a hurry it seems, the candy wrapper must have slipped or of his or hers pocket. We’ll scan the finger prints found on this candy wrapper. Don’t worry, you’ll have your diamond ring back in the afternoon. That is a promise.’


The story is full of flaws. I know. But hey I at least there is something for Day 4 haha. XD

Day 3:HORSES — October 3, 2017
Day 2- HUNGER — October 2, 2017

Day 2- HUNGER

A mixture of misery and anger could be seen in her eyes. She was dressed in torn clothes, her dark dust covered hair hid her innocent dimpled face. Walking slow as ever into the darkness called home, managing to force half a smile as she spotted her one and only companion. It was her pet cat named Cherry. She clumsily walked towards it, as the furry animal welcomed her with a muffled meow. She gracefully sat next to Cherry and started to pet her.

Swallowing down her tears she spoke hesitantly, ‘No one cares about me, Cherry have you ever felt that way?’ In response Cherry blankly stared at her. This reaction made her giggle but the wave of laughter faded away as soon as it had come. ‘They all consider themselves to be above me. Why is my life so hard?’ she question not only this but the purpose of her existence.

‘Why am I never given a chance? Just because of my appearance. Because I don’t own better clothes? Can’t afford food!’ Do I not matter? her voice trembled as she attempted to control the whirlpool of emotions stirring inside her weak body. ‘I guess they follow that rule.’ She uttered the words with bitterness, as tears started to roll down her fragile face. Then with her mind tangled in thoughts and holding on to her aching heart she whispered, ‘We are what we eat. I eat nothing and so I am.‘ There was only one thing left to do, she used her hand as a pillow and tried to close her eyes shut to stop the tears from flowing. Sleep was the only way to fight the hunger, until the blazing sun in the morning forced her to wake up.
