An Egyptian living in Europe but her heart stayed back home. Having some random thoughts about the before and after pictures. Ghawayesh means bracelets. In my context it symbolizes the cuffs of my culture. I don't know if I like them or hate them. Thanks for passing by.

About Me

I started this blog in 2006 as a joke. Now that I look back, I have decided to take it seriously!

The Logical Song

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
Joyfully, playfully watching me.
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
Logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
Liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
Acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!

At night, when all the world's asleep,
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.

Now What?

This bee in my head needs to get out of my head!

In fact it's no bee..

But rather a cockroach.

Elixir of Life

I seem to breathe you in just to stay alive..

The thought that the place's air has been in your lungs makes me inhale as deep as I can.. And slowly but unsurely, want to let go.. Only, only, hoping for the next gasp of air, that has been into you.

That, my love, is my elixir of life.

My Heart!

Someone has just been killed infront of my house!

I don't know what happened. Car/tram hit him/her or what.. But it's devastating. I don't know how I survived this fucking medical study!! I can't stand seeing people being hurt- let alone killed!


Oh.. My.. Heart..

Sobs.

UPDATE: Mentioned Zurich Police on Twitter and they replied saying it was someone who had a medical emergency.

Somehow relieved. :'(
