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

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,

why?

the fear…

diagnosed stage 3,

self ….silence…

family…tears…

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

then…

….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

silence…

….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 ”
18th Aug 2018 , an Army Vet age around 74 years was diagnosed with colon cancer stage between two and three.

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.

Doctors and staff attending him were saluting him for his will power and positivity as he was sitting fit and fine even after undergoing 6 longs hours of surgery.

From the day he was diagnosed Cancer to the day of surgery following was his routine:

8 kms brisk walk daily even on the radiation day.
2 hours exercise ,1 hour morning and 1 hour evening exercise — focused on abs.
no food restrictions everything he had other than non veg.
Main important thing carrying attitude of Positivity and Will Power that he will beat this illness .

For those who are the future:
Don’t use your freedom as a red carpet for a popular pop singer, or a president.
Don’t walk on it to get a phone that is smarter than you!
Don’t hate, erase all the lines on the map, unite your nationalities to “ human”, let love spread through the oceans.
Don’t be racist, racism pulls the nations back, and the souls down.
Don’t be a ***** for the brand of your shirt, for the kardashians granddaughters lips, or for the green paper.
Don’t be a ***** for the nothingness, for what will be gone.

She says that people don’t listen to her
I hold back my retort that
“She doesn’t listen to others”

She mentions how everyone keeps leaving her
I hold back my retort that
“Maybe if you were more aware of others it’d be easier to stay with you”

Honestly,
It’s more complex than that

To an extent,
I admire
Her ignorance of her surroundings
Those around her

Because,
I’m hyper aware
Too self conscious
Too worried about how others think of me

She’s the opposite
So wrapped up in a cacoon
Of her own problems
She doesn’t notice those around her

But this can also pose problems
A LOT
Of problems
We were best friends in eighth grade
But we grew
And I couldn’t handle
Such a close relationship
With her

I tried to expressly wait for her
Remember her birdthday
She didn’t notice
Or even if she did,
It was never reciprocated

I was talking
She’d respond
Immediately switching
The conversation
To herself

It’s not maliciousness
It’s just plain ignorance

But what can I do?
I’m still friends with her
She’s just not-nowhere near
The top of my list

I can’t go up to her
And tell her this
She’d take it the wrong way

But even then,
Who am I to tell her how to live her life?
I have enough social issues of my own
And she’s fine just the way it is

It’s extremely frustrating
Seeing a problem
But being unable
To do anything
About it

She wants more friends
She has to put in that effort
And I can’t
Be
The
One
To advise her how

How could you love someone so much that you tolerate the endless mistakes they do?
How you cover each wound with a band aid and look the other away when he pulls that band aid and digs deeper into that cut
Can you continue to look yourself in the mirror and live with the person you have become?
Is it fair that you sit by waiting leading with false hope and pretenses while he lives his best life and doesn’t give you a second thought?
When will it end? When will you realize that this he was never good for you?
You are worth more than what you sell yourself for
waffle iron sessions wire dire
and aloofness doubt
anyone here
that caught this black
gem but
goose lurid quake that hot potato flip witness
that gaff and orient law
in so far as probe
that mound
these overt operations
an official notice

i preach about self love
when it’s something i lack
i tell you to hold on
when i’m not sure i can
i comfort your worries
while mine cloud over me
i encourage you to take care of yourself
while i struggle to stand
i teach you to love what you see in the mirror
while i can’t even look into mine
How I wish you could see my right now!

I’m not sure of what I’ve become, so changed by sorrow;

Darkness may cover my image,

only a silhouette to be seen.

You say I’m negative, depressed, and even someone new;

someone who once been the source of your happiness;

but hear me out here, I just lost the light that guided me through,

I lost you! The one thing that made me smile!

a true smile, the kind of smile that didn’t fade after the joke has been said.

a smile that pops up when I randomly look at you from afar;

that smile is not this smile!

the tree of life
the seed of spice
of where we hung
the birds then sung
beneath our legs
the water begs
come dive in
all tinged with sin
so i took a chance
got water all on my pants
but whom i sat with
went a little bat ****
and was not my friend
until the very end
he was the safe road
an unwilling toad
so i cut the ties
and went on with my life
i tried new things
met new people
and found myself
away from the chains
of a terrible
controlling
relationship
and now
i am

happy

fun

friendly

and

free

without him
