Dream on!
Cause legends were fools who never ceased to stop
and nobodies were sages who hesitated to take a step
Let's say it's bardic inspiration

The full moon penetrated
His glint through my
Battered victorian
Sash window at twilight,
Whilst poem 52
Was made known
Unto me by Yeshua,
My Muse.

''Let not thy imagination
Run wild with idle theories
Echoed by voices of dubiety
Under the lawless one
Hellbent on wounding
Me by making sin,
Man's daily bread''.

''Guard thy faith with
My scriptures, and lean
On scholars well learned in
Her near eastern culture
That their twisted Words,
Will take no effect on
Zhavaed Haemaed May 2020
Don't live in hope for a better future. The better future we hope for is a farce. Live now, love now, love fiercely. Make each moment count.

Don’t allow grey skies to dampen your hair,
soak up your shirt,
seep into your

Let the tears fall if they brew under-lid,
cleanses and

Don’t stay up late ‘til the birds start to talk,
spreading secrets
you don’t need to

Smoke always rises and wind blows you sideways-
even gorse ****
has bright yellow

I did my best,
And then someone told me that because I was dark they couldn't see the dark circles around my life
My presence brought gloomy feels so strong they wish for me to be gone
And seldom grown was the belief that life can be used wisely
So I cried for help, with a pillow besides my halo
And religiously corrected my every hate
For I know I did my best
But better is what I have repent.

eyes locked
my heart dies,
the idea of love falls apart,
my allies try to

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) - 67

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem

I don't probe the divine nature of eternal love!
The sincere desire what I naturally have for You,
I' inborn with Your passionate fondness,
To willingly embrace You my Beloved.

Nor my gentle heart is void!
Nor satisfactorily complete!
Nor it wantonly breaks!
Nor it inevitably perishes!

You the one Oh my Treasured!
Your eternal love eagerly grasps,
My gentle heart and properly advise
Me, ow to sincerely love!

Allah Khair..... Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
“ 74th Birthday Morning,

phone ringing for wishes… unattended

cup of tea and newspaper waiting for the sip… unattended

something not right…

blood in stool,


the fear…

diagnosed stage 3,

self ….silence…


question from mind : Life is at its evening , is night now near?

answer from will power : Life has a new day every day and evening to disappear.

months and weeks…

chemos & radiation ,

pain , irritation

exercise & running ,

will power , motivation

cheers over jeers

close competition


….the long day ….surgery

preference …on two legs not the stretcher

fun over depression,

proudly walking the red carpet of the theatre

few needles in back ,

….. six hours of unconsciousness


….dark deep silence

then the flash…

a rainbow from nowhere….

in brightness …. appears son’s face ….

congratulations you have won the battle

operation success-full

the smile of his will power replies , yes I hear ”

The picture below is of day 2 after surgery , clicked on 18th Dec 2018 where he is sitting and advising people around on how to defeat cancer.All credit of his success-full operation and recovery goes to his own will power and belief that Cancer is just another illness and can be cured if one is determined to beat it.
