Soar above your pains by coddling them.
Rise above your wounds by embracing them,
Ascend above your sorrows by accepting them.

Intertwine them, hold tight to the emotional charge.
Convert them to positive energy.
Make them a part of your prayer temple.

Your wound is the place,
Where your flowers will blossom,
With a rainbow of spring colors.

Your pain is the place,
Where your cure will emerge,
with the birth of new dawn and renewed purpose.

Your sorrow is the place,
Where your joy will bud,
With a life full of hope and optimism.

Hussein Dekmak
Always Remember...
Hope comes after despair.
Cure .... after pain.
Smiles ... after tears.
Laughter ...after cries.
Health ... after sickness.

Love ... after hate.
Joy ...  after sorrow.
Healing ... after forgiveness.
A newborn life ...  after labor.
Eternal life ... after death.

Light ... after darkness.
Dawn ...  after night.
Blue skies ... after storm.
Spring ... after winter.
Beautiful landscape ...  after rain.

When your housekeeper pours her heart into her work making your place clean and shining,
Say thank you!

When your waitress greets you with a warm smile, and tries her best to provide you a quality service,
Say thank you!

When your mailman struggles to delivers your mail fighting through challenging weather,
Say thank you!

Make them feel valued,
Express to them your gratitude,
Lighten up their day with words of appreciation,
Embrace them with humanity and treat them with kindness!

The moon was once asked, how do you keep evolving with so much beauty?
He replied, 'my longing for the sun makes me shimmer with light at night.
The love of the Sun, it makes me “Majnoun Leila” I die every new dawn,
So my love, my Sun can rise up every morning with a renewed hope and a warm smile'

Plant a tree,
Water a flower,
Preserve nature,
Have a purpose!

Feed a bird,
Cuddle a pet,
Be humane to animals,
Have a purpose!

Save a life,
Nurture an orphan,
Stand up with the oppressed,
Have a purpose!

Count your blessings,
Recite your prayers,
Contemplate the universe,
Have a purpose!

Nurture your mind with ideas,
Fill your heart with the wine of love,
Dress your soul with the garment of kindness,
Have a purpose!

Like a birth of new life at the crack of a new dawn,
I want you to rise to the call of love and humanity.

Like a cool summer breeze, I want to brush across your soul
and awaken it to the cry of your starving neighbor.

Like a charming smile painted on your face,
I want to brighten up your day with my poetry.

Like a ringing of the church's bells and the call of prayer at the Mosque, I want to invite you to join me in the caravan of hope and liberty.

Like a murmur of my mother's prayer,
I want to be the echo of blessings that caresses your spirit.

Like a beautiful song of love on your lips, I want to be
the letters of your happiness and the music that dances inside your chest.

Like a sweet thought that slip into your dreams,
I want to sail into your life, and fill it with joy and inspiration
