Like a little prayer
Hussein Dekmak Dec 2019
Like a prayer,
sing the song of life,
Recite the oath of humanity,
Give yourself away to a noble cause.

Like a prayer
Wear your smile,
Give your greetings,
Speak softly and kindly

Like a prayer,
Cuddle someone’s sorrow,
Soothe their pain, touch their soul,
Render your services to the public.

Like a prayer,
Nourish your body,
Exhibit your best qualities,
Pour your heart into your job.

Like a prayer,
Fill your heart with compassion,
Make your soul a temple of love,
Nurture your thoughts with creative ideas.

It is all good!
Hussein Dekmak Nov 2019
If you go through a raging storm,
Have your life colored with sorrow
And taste the wine of pain,
It is all good!

If you go through a bad experience,
Have your heart broken to pieces,
And your rosy dreams shattered,
It is all good!

If you go through a venture of failure,
Suffer through a dreadful  hardship,
And struggle to make ends meet,
It is all good!

After all “What doesn't break you makes you stronger”
Your sorrow, tears, and pain will shape
your personality and make it shine
with beauty, love, and humanity!

You are the whisper of love.
You are a thousand roads to kindness.
You are God's image and daily prayers.

You are the color of spring.
You are the fragrance of the flowers.
You are the smell of freshly baked cake.

You are all of the beautiful melodies of the birds.
You are the charming smiles on the faces of people,
painted with a rainbow of inspiration and optimism.

You are the  twinkling stars.
You are the new dawn wrapped,
with renewed promise, the sunshine.

Your soft words are a sweet song that
touches the hearts, makes faces glow with
smiles, and fill minds with hope and inspiration.

Soar above your pains
Hussein Dekmak Oct 2019
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.

Always Remember...
Hope comes after despair.

Laughter ...after cries.
Health ... after sickness.

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

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

Your Evolving Beauty
Hussein Dekmak Aug 2019
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'

Like a murmur of my mother's prayer,

To My Dad’s Olive Tree
Hussein Dekmak Jul 2019
I hope you know, I hold our fond memories together close to my heart,
all that I shared with you about my childhood dreams, my first love,
the songs I serenaded you with melodies celebrating nature,
our endless nights together admiring the stars decorated around the full moon.

I remember how tall you stood, you were so strong
Like Lebanon’s mountains, even with our land’s ancient ruins
Facing the Israeli occupation, you stood with so much pride,
I remember how we rejoiced with family and neighbors during the sweet liberation.

As you know, my Dad planted you with his hands, he nurtured you with his sweat,
His love, he was so strong and now times have changed him,
He’s grown older, thinner, more fragile, his speech is slurred,
The eyes that once held thousands of untold stories are now dim.

You are part of God’s oath, Noah’s mission with the Ark,
You are a sacred plant, a symbol of love, life, peace, friendship
And generations of culture passed down,
Your roots run so deep in mine and my Dad’s hearts and minds.

I’m begging you old friend, lighten up my Dad’s golden age with your kind heart,
Lend him support in taking more steps towards life,
Keep his spirit alive so he can continue singing the song of a new life,
Give him the strength to swing on the porch to admire you again, for every new day and new sunrise.

The Heart Whispers
Hussein Dekmak Feb 2019
The Heart is greater than the eyes,

for the heart, amidst all the pain,

sees through the delicate lenses of beauty.



The Heart is superior over the ears,

for the heart, amid all the loud noise,

listens to the softest whispers of humanity.



The Heart is bigger than the nose,

for the heart, among all of the scents,

smells the fragrance of new life.



The Heart is larger than the hands,

for the heart, amongst all that it can do,

touches in a way that is softer than the dawn’s dew.



The Heart is superior to the tongue,

for the heart, with all of its might,

speaks only the sweet letters of kindness.



The Heart is more immense than all of the human senses,

for the heart carries so much love,

it can lighten up the face of the whole universe.

Go back to sleep!

If you can't hear nature's song playing the music of love every new day, with every new dawn, new sunrise and a fresh moon smile,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't make your heart a Mecca for the freedom seekers, your spirit a temple for the suffering souls and your mind a spring well of innovative ideas,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't hear the cry of the iconic figure of the starving Yemeni child 'Amal Hussein', as she was shedding her last tear, taking her last breath, and whispering her last prayer,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't spare a holy dish to fill the empty stomachs, if you
can't spare a kind word to help sooth other’s pain and color their lives with the rainbow hues of hope and happiness,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't be the soul of your place, the tsunami of positive change and a part of the spring of humanity that will blossom
with a new future full of hope, love and inspiration,

A breeze of love
Hussein Dekmak Jan 2019
You experience love,
when you treat everything that you do in life, from
carefully drafting your thoughts and sketching your
rainbow dreams, to breathing and carrying out kind
deeds, as the sweet prayers you whisper to a beloved.

You feel love,
when all of the letters, all of the words
become muted with hollow meaning and strange characters,
it is when your five senses become speechless
in the presence of the thousand tongues of your heart.

You become one with love,
when you run your business with your beloved prepared for loss,
you let the scars of love dance inside your chest,
protect the perfect pieces of your heart that are left,
guard them with hope and wash them with your tears.

A shattered dream,
And a dream in the works.

Everyone has a story,
A battle won,
A battle lost,
A battle that is unfolding.

Everyone has a story,
An old wound,
A bleeding wound,
And a scar that is healing.

Everyone has a story,
Life indulges you with its joys,
Coddles  you with security it
Stretch  you thin with its sorrows,

Everyone has a story, yet it is up to
you to ascend to victory, in your
fight against your agonies so, you can write  the last chapter of your story.

To be touched by love
Hussein Dekmak Dec 2018
To be touched by love,
is to feel a tsunami of joy running through your arteries,
and to be able to see the light through your wounds and suffering.

To be touched by love,
is to live on the lips of bliss and happiness,
and let your soul orbit around the beauty that is your surroundings

To be touched by love, is to have yourself drawn to befriend your
underprivileged neighbors, be inspired to start a conversation, sooth
their pain, and show them the way to a new dawn of hope and ingenuity.

To be touched by love, is to be able to
merge with every creation of this universe, becoming one, by speaking their languages, listening to their prayers, and sharing their songs.

with thoughts of joy and inspiration.

I decorated the empty ceilings
with a full moon and some shinning stars,
I took down the draping’s that once covered the windows, and watched from my living room as the new dawn embraced the sunshine.

In my garden, I built a house for the melody birds to sing their songs,
And constructed a temple for prayer from my tears and sorrows,
I planted an olive tree in memory of the innocent souls,  decorated it
with some tulips, roses, and jasmine flowers for the anthem of love.

The ice cream truck

Stop, stop!!!” My two-year-old shouts,
While running after the big blue ice-cream truck,
Bare foot, cash strapped and out of breath,
He catches him in time to get his usual:
A bag of hot fries, pop rocks, and a two-ball ***** ball.

Now, times have changed…
My two-year-old 'Ali' is now a 5’ 9” 15-year-old,
Who’s sold his soul to sports and his PS4.
Even the big blue ice cream truck has changed,
And is now a bright yellow color.
The ice cream man has grown older,
Yet, he still asks for “Ali” with the same great big smile!

Be the sun that shines with selfless love.
Be the bird that sings with joy to an open heart.
Be the fragrance of a flower that brings happiness as its reward.

Be the moon that brings light to a darkened path.
Be the dawn of a new day that brings the gift of blessings and smiles.
Be the candle that burns in honor of a kind  soul missed by a loved one.

“You are not fresh”
Hussein Dekmak Apr 2018
You are not fresh”
Yet every gem of my body tells me that I am fresh,
and all snowflakes song whisper in my ears that I am fresh.

“You are not fresh”
Yet, my deeds have the fragrance of  flowers,
and  my thoughts are painted with  the color of spring.

“You are not fresh”
Yet  my days keep blossoming with joy and  happiness,
and  my imagination is still colored with boyish dreams.

“You are not fresh”
Yet youth is not measured  by your age, but counted by the number of the smiles you draw on people's faces, and the lives you touch.

“You are not fresh”
yet the moon has become more eloquent with  brightness after long age,
and  the sun has revealed more beauty after shining for millions of years.
