Lyrics:

There are a thousand dreams
In this world to be turned into reality
There are a thousand souls
In this world seeking the way to spirituality

There are a thousand doors
In this world unlocking the most promising creations
There are a thousand roads
In this world leading to desired destinations

There are a thousand hearts
In this world beating for whom they admire
There are a thousand ambitions
In this world keeping ignited the inner fire

But all it takes is One
One dream to give you what you wanted
One soul who reaches the ultimate goal
One door to the future you always wanted
One road to reach the place where you belong
One heart to make you feel loved
One ambition to make you feel strong
Sometimes that one completes you as whole

The father is watching , peeking through the narrow door slat in the old Citadel Building of Benton Harbor . The walls seem like paper , the light thin , the patina dusty … yet with golden sheens they pirouette after the last poem of winter passes . Olivia dances , the Dance of Spring , the others watching as she creates her own gravity .imageimageimage

Ten Things You Need to Know About Arabs

Ten Things You Need to Know About Arabs

Arwa

I found this on the Civil Arab and couldn’t help but share it here:

Whoever coined the term “Ignorance is bliss” is an absolute idiot. Ignorance is not bliss. In fact, ignorance leads to misunderstanding. Misunderstanding leads to fear. Fear leads to bias and hate. So I am here to present to the American public the top 10 things that Arabs want non-Arabs to know about them. If you remember these, then Arabs will not look at you as a “Dumb American.”

1. Not all of us are Muslim

As an Arab Christian myself, I wish I had a nickel for every time I heard, “When did you convert?” I would be a very rich man. About 10% of the Arab population is Christian. Yes, we are a minority, but we are still there and have been Christians for 2,000 years. I’m not sure how good the average American is…

March – the beginning of Spring.

March – the beginning of Spring.

Arwa

I live in the middle east and the real spring begins in March. Indeed there will be some cold days in this month, but the warmth begins. And it’s beautiful.

The day is getting longer and I’m no longer afraid of the dark. It’s lovely. The rain can be light, and the sun can be friendly. There is always time during this season… for everything.

There is always time for fiction and poetry. For creation and absorbing.

And did I mention nature?

There will be all flowers, from all different shapes and colors.

And there will be energy. Energy.

But will there be love? For that we have to wait for a greater spring. Not this year, not this spring.

We have to wait a while to get what we truly want.

In the meantime, there is some sun to keep us warm.
