Your Scars
I have:
Heard your cry
Sensed your pain
Felt your wounds
Seen your scars
Cuddled your agonies
Listened to your heartache
Witnessed your tears and
Embraced your cause

If I Have the Choice
If I have the choice,
I would want to be
A blue butterfly
The little bird flying
A Blooming flower
The Spring breeze
The Dew on a green leaf
A New dawn
The Flute longing for love
The Twinkling star
The Full moon
The Shinning sun

If I have the choice to be, I definitely want to be:
A person with
A loving heart
Full of kind deeds
And inspiring ideas.

Spring Awakening
When spring arrives, it touches nature’s heart, and awakens it into a new life
Trees are blossoming
Beautiful Lilly flowers are blooming
Fields are dressed in a green garment
Blue butterflies are flying
Bees are buzzing
Baby bunnies are playing
Birds are chirping in backyards
Water springs are bursting
Water waves are dancing
Nature is burning love

I wonder, if we as human being could bring out the best in us, and show the whole world our inner beauty by the touch of spring?

Your Kindness
Your Kindness

Your kindness has:
The smell of popcorn
The scent of a special fragrance
The taste of pumpkin pie
The breath of fresh air
The sound of a favorite music
The beauty of an eloquent flower
The gentle touch of a spring breeze
The murmur of a mother’s prayer
The whisper of a beautiful heart
The voice of ocean waves
The song of a melodious bird
The freshness of a new dawn
The wake up call to love humanity

A cemetery with no soul, no melody

Tune into the sound of the ocean’s sparkling waves.
Surrender to the call of a new life with a renewed hope.

Or a lyric of nature’s eternal song!

I Belong
Hussein Dekmak Jun 2022
I belong
To the roses blooming with elegance,
The birds song yearning for love,
The spring singing the song of life,
The dawn declaring a new beginning,
The moon shining on lovers’ footsteps.

I Belong
To the cry of the suffering souls,
The dish that feeds the hungry stomaches,
The sacred justice that was crucified,
The whispers of my mother’s prayer.

I Belong,
To the kind words that sooth other’s pains,
The random acts of kindness,
The hearts that are full of compassion,
The idea that plant seeds for positive change,

I Belong,
To the hope of all of humanity,
The inventor of all of the infinite beauty,
The beautiful song of all of creation,
The God of the whole universe.

To fly above the white clouds,
Walk on the moon.

Fulfil your dreams with great accomplishments,
Stay productive, stand out among the crowds,
Break through the chains of your comfort zone.

Your pains, sorrows, and wounds my friend are
Your bridge to a breathtaking life, 
Full of hope, adventures, and excitement,
With a new dawn, and a new day!

A positive Thought
Hussein Dekmak Mar 2022
It was a gloomy and rainy day outside.
Yet, in my mind the day was a sunny with a light spring breeze.

I thought, “I want to lose myself in the outdoors by taking a walk, kissing the sun on her cheek, listening to the chirping birds and tuning in to nature’s silent songs”. This thought made my heart dance with joy.

My dear friend, what shapes your life and fills it with happiness are the positive thoughts that you feed your mind.

A Little Bird
Hussein Dekmak Feb 2022
I am a little bird.
I aim to soar and fly high up in the sky.
Although I tumble, I always rise.
I long to be free
Of all my pain and sorrows.
I strive to be alive,
And reach new horizons everyday!

I have a song, I have a fire;
I enchant people and fill their hearts with peace, hope, and happiness.
I am content with little,
Yet, I own the whole universe.
I travel the world to awaken
One soul at a time to the call of love!

Melody of Life
Hussein Dekmak Jan 2022
It's a frigid January
With gloomy sky,
Depressing weather, and
Falling snow.
Yet, I don’t care!

I want to play,
I want to have fun,
I want to climb in the trees,
I want to be free,
I want to be present,
I want to feel alive!

Winter will not take hold of
My love for nature,
I will forever have an eagerness to
Dance to the eternal melody of life!

I got inspired to write this poem after I saw a kid climbing in a tree from across the street.

Everything draws me to you:
The pulse of a new dawn,
The laughter of the sun,
The aroma of baked bread,
The song of a bird,
The fragrance of a flower,
The magnificent beauty of nature,
The miracle of a baby's birth,
The whisper of hope and humanity.

Everywhere I gaze, I see your beautiful face.
Anywhere I go, I feel the touch of your love.
You are the compass of the hearts
And the Infinite light of the whole universe!

Song of Life
Hussein Dekmak Sep 2021
It is the song within the heart:
Of the sun, that makes her forever shine,
The dawn, that encourages her to greet you with a smile,
The flower, that urges her to bloom for adoration,
Of the bird, that inspires her to warble the melody of love,
And the moon, that motivates her to continuously evolve in beauty.

Do you have your own song:
That makes you dream of grandeur,
Colors your thought with a rainbow of optimism,
Prompts you to plant the seeds of kindness,
Drives you to accomplish something remarkable,
And motivates you to serve others with a touch of humanity?

Feeling Good
Hussein Dekmak Aug 2021
Feeling good is:
Greeting a stranger with a smile,
Chatting with your elderly neighbor's,
And treating them with care and compassion.

Soothing another's pain,
Feeding hungry stomachs,
Standing with the oppressed,
Rendering service to others for no return.

Exploring a new idea,
Enriching your knowledge,
Reflecting and pondering,
Planting the seeds of positive change.

Listening to the whispers of love,
Inspiring the next generation,
Being around intelligent people,
Enjoying the company of soft-hearted friends.

Restoring people's shattered dreams,
Be their candle and their lifeboat,
Listening to the cries of innocent souls,
And showing them the way to a new dawn.

Lifting the spirit of the broken-hearted,
Delivering them through a helping hand,
Dressing your soul in a garment of giving.
Lifting your voice to be the champion of the forgotten.

Counting your blessings,
Reciting your prayers,
Contemplating the universe,
Listening to nature’s songs with muted words.

Sixty-seven children have been slaughtered.
Sixty-seven dreams have been shattered.
Sixty-seven beautiful faces have now vanished.
Sixty-seven vibrant smiles have faded.
Sixty-seven beds are left empty.

Palestinian children, like all children, love to play.
Palestinian children are longing for peace.
The children of Gaza dream to be teachers, nurses, artists, engineers, and doctors.
Palestinian children want to breathe.
Palestinian children's lives matter!

Standing Up
Hussein Dekmak May 2021
Fight for your beliefs; fight for what you know in your heart is right.
Fight for the stray animals without homes.
Fight for controlling pollution and preserving nature.
Fight for justice for all of the children of Adam and Eve.

Speak up against poverty.
Speak up against the insane massacres of innocent lives.
Speak up against senseless wars.
Speak up against bigotry, hatred, and labeling.
Speak up against all of the ignorance!
Don’t ever be the silent bystander.

Stand up tall, don’t even think about giving up in surrender.
Stand up for those who are crippled with pain.
Stand up for those who are powerless to do so for themselves.
Stand up for exemplary patient care.
Stand up for well-deserved employees to get appropriate wages
Stand firmly for hope, happiness, love, and peace.
Don’t let the light, creativity, and inspiration in you die.

Making a Difference
Hussein Dekmak May 2021
A flower knows that she can’t delight everyone with her scent and beauty.
A bird comprehends that he can’t make everybody happy with his melodious songs.
An olive tree realizes that she can’t feed all of the people’s hunger.
A water spring recognizes that she can’t quench the thirst of all humankind.
The moon is aware that he can’t eliminate all of the universe’s darkness.

Yet, they do their share because they believe in making a difference. They strive to make it a better world, a globe full of hope, inspiration, and giving!

The stars whispered:
We are your horoscope, and your fortune tellers!
We bring your loved ones together, so you share and bask in our beauty.  
We shine so bright to illuminate and guide you through even your darkest of nights!

The moon whispered:
I am your loyal companion, and your secret keeper.
I provide you with light; I am the symbol of transition and progression!
I am the master of infinite beauty that inspires you with creativity and poetry!

The sun whispered:
Every day when I rise, I heal your old wounds.
With my shining face, I shower you with joy and smiles.  
I provide you a life full of hope, growth, and empowerment.
I am your eternal song of rebirth, inspiration, and a new promise for a better day!  

The earth whispered:
I have made myself a home for you and decorated it with trees, flowers, and rivers.
Do you remember when you had taken your first baby steps?
You stumbled and fell; I lifted you up with my gentle heart,
And provided you with everything that I have, to watch you grow and blossom.
When you are ready to depart, I promise to hold you like a baby in my gentle arms,
And bury your fragile body, along with your precious secrets, deep inside my heart.
I will embrace your soul with infinite love since I am your mother nature!

Searching for My Soul
Hussein Dekmak May 2021
After gazing at my father’s serene face,
I asked him about soul searching.

He answered me with a warm smile,
My precious child,
You will find your soul in the simplest of things.

You will find your soul in giving charity to a homeless on the street Corner.
You can find your soul in the daily services that you render to people;
Services that you pour your heart into.

You can find your soul by losing yourself in doing things that you enjoy:
In being always surrounded by people whom you love,
By sharing a smile with a stranger,
By being the messenger of kindness, 
In helping people overcome their pain.

You will find it in always doing your best to inspire and uplift people, and by planting the seeds of hope and happiness in their hearts.

You can find your soul in the tears you shed in the middle of night, asking God for forgiveness for your misfortune and mistakes.

You can find your soul in purging your heart from greed, arrogance, and hatred.
And instead, replacing them with love, generosity, and humility.
