I’m too invested in things more beautiful than poetry
So I’m trying
I’m getting requests to continue
And I don’t wanna refuse
I know the magic words can do
So I wanna continue
But about what
And where do I start
The weather’s nice
It rained today
Like the tears that I shed yesterday
But the rain is mercy
Unlike my pain
So I know I’ve healed
I felt happy
And I took my parrot out to the balcony
And he screeched and sang from excitement
And that was my heart.
Happy and joyful
Dancing inside from joy
I don’t get why people use umbrellas during such beautiful weather
It’s ungrateful and idiotic
Especially for people in Kuwait
I can’t believe they could be so dumb
After months of being roasted under the scorching Kuwaiti sun
You’d think people would cherish this beautiful weather
And drops of sweet water from the heavens
And the weather’s gift to the people of Kuwait
And they have the nerve to be so ungrateful
With umbrellas over their heads
And pacing speedily out from under the sky
So desperate to get inside
They don’t cherish it when they get it
And yet they complain all year round about how much they would love if Kuwait was breezy and cool
We live in a world where people who don’t have time
To cherish and enjoy the things they asked for all year round
What a strange world…
A result of my years worth of efforts and contributions to this cause 🙂
I’ve quit though.
We all have.
Long story as to why.
But here it is: my shield:
Pakistani Blood Donors In Kuwait.
This organization was founded by Pakistanis to raise awareness among all citizens of Kuwait about the importance of blood donation. It was run mostly by Pakistanis encouraging people of all cultures and backgrounds to save lives.
Apart from hosting blood donation drives and campaigns, the organization also held monetary donation drives for certain individuals who required financial backing up for their cancer treatment and also for individuals that needed kidney transplants.
The organization had been recognized among the top ten humanitarian causes in Kuwait by the Kuwaiti ministry of health and had been honored by the minister as well.
It was the best experience and I met the best, most committed and dedicated individuals via this organization. They had admirable loyalty towards this cause and I absolutely adore these people.
May Allah reward them all for their efforts 🙂
We’ve all quit though. But not before we treated ourselves to a celebration for all our efforts and contributions towards this cause.
This event was hosted by the executive members of the team to honor their general council team members as well as their ex executive members whose efforts had never been acknowledged before. The shields were presented by senior executive members and our sponsors and the Pakistani ambassador.
I’m glad I was part of this team and I will forever cherish the memories.
“As women when we fight for our rights in our struggle to stand next to men in total and absolute equality, men are not really the ones that defeat us; even though they are the ones that insult us and discourage us the most.
The ones that defeat us are in fact women…
Those women that side with men.
And you know what’s ironic? They side with men by standing behind men. Not beside them.”
Salaams everyone, this is just to notify you that I’m minimizing my use of wordpress. I have to sit my exams in June and I haven’t so much as touched my textbooks and I really have to start studying.

Have an amazing time you guys, I’mma be takin’ a break.
