Intermeddle hurts
Mellow waves Jul 2018
Go follow your dreams they say,
Well, how can i follow them if people can’t stop putting boarders,
If they can’t stop interfering with your life,
Pushing you too hard
Making you want to quit in times when you were fine all by yourself,
Why can’t everyone focus on their path in life? Is it too hard?
Does that sound impossible to you?
Just leave me and my life alone
I will carve my path as beautiful as i can
And with some bumps along the way,
I will create the most compelling work of art.

Hard to Face Reality
Mellow waves May 2018
I tried to escape,
Escape the reality,
I tried living in my dreams,
In my bubbly own world,
Doing everything i always wanted to do,

But sometimes it’s hard,
Hard ignoring the reality,
Hard not wanting to hear the truth,

You’ve got to grow up they say..
Face everything, all the bad in this world,
But still i don’t understand,
How a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad?

I will try to be, the best i can be
I will try to be, the bravest you’ll see,
I’ll make sure to try till the day i die...

Miracle
Mellow waves Aug 2018
Miracles do happen everyday...
Every moment, every breath you take,
Is truly a miracle

In the same hospital,
The exact moment you hear the heart rate monitor giving its final beeps on the first floor,
You hear the shrieking of a new born on the fourth floor,

The sadness and grief on one family’s face,
Hope and delight on the other’s,
Prove that life and death are truly intertwined,

They are a cycle,
They complete each other
It’s really a miracle.

A miracle visible to the naked eye,
A miracle that makes life worthwhile.

Stronger
Mellow waves May 2018
So you thought you could change me,
Try to make me miserable, lonely and sad,
You thought i was like the rest, blameworthy and bad,

Yet look at me, I’m happier than ever,
I’m free and strong, i’m brave and determined,
I’m fearless, nothing can stand in my way,
I know my goals, my hopes and my wishes,

So take a step back and look at me,
I’m rising and rising, reaching the top
Piece by piece i will achieve all my dreams.

Let Me Be Me
Mellow waves Apr 2018
People expect a lot, they think you can excel in everything you do.
They expect you to move a mountain, break a rock, aim at the middle with just one shot
But, do you want to hear the truth?
This may sound cheesy for you, but for me..
I’m tired. Tired of everything.
Tired of waking up every morning and pretending like everything is perfect.
Tired of doing my best everyday in everything.
Sometimes i want to mess up, i want to fall and get hurt, but stand back up alone,
I want to fail, then learn from my mistakes and become a better version of myself.
But thanks to this society you’ve got to live up to your standards and never be mistaken.
You’ve got to hide your feelings and try not to fall in love because you’re still a child; you don’t understand the meaning of love.
You’ve got to speak up and not be shy, well that my friend,may be possible but with time.
So just let me be me.. i know i’m not perfect but at least i’ll live my life the way i want it to be.
Let me be me..

Trust
Mellow waves Apr 2018
Trust is a golden key to one’s heart
It is so strong yet easily shattered,
It is so pure yet easily blemished,
It is as strong as the howling of the wind,
It is truly, the craving that everyone seeks.

Perspective Matters
Mellow waves Aug 2018
Planes rust when left on the ground
For they were meant to fly,
Hearts break from time to time,
To question the purpose of this thing called life
Men stumble occasionally,
To stand back up and grow stronger.

You see, everything truly does happen for a reason,
You just have to dig deep,
Dig deeper than before,
Look through life with rose colored glasses,
And you’ll see how beautiful is the gift of God.

Lost
Mellow waves Apr 2018
My heart speaks one voice, while my brain another.
My soul lies in a place,
Where no mankind can ace.

Help me, i’m lost..
Lost in a world full of darkness and hope.

Suspire
Mellow waves Jul 2018
Shimmering stars above your head,
Invigorating wind rippling through your clothes,
Strapping waves hitting the shore,
Astonishing music emerging from the violin..

But then i wake up,
I wake up and everything disappears
How is that possible? A place that means so much to you disappearing so swiftly..

I truly wanted to live in that moment
I truly wanted to stay there forever and ever..

Treasure
Mellow waves May 2018
The only person who holds me when i’m down,
Rescues me in my nightmares,
Makes me laugh so hard even at times when i can’t fake a smile,

Spoils me until i feel like a princess,
Hugs me so tight until i can’t breathe,
Makes me want to remain in his arms until i feel painless,

Makes me feel safe even without a roof on our heads,
Makes me want to reach for the stars and never look back,
Makes me want to become the strongest version of myself,

The only person who inspires me,
The only person who means the entire world to me,
The only person who makes life worth living,
My astonishing, one in a million Dad.

The Unraveled Mystery
Mellow waves Apr 2018
Suddenly i hear no voice,
I am deaf yet i hear everyone
I hear children chattering, birds chirping, clocks ticking, i hear them all..
But i can’t hear one thing, that voice.
The voice that kept me safe, the voice that strengthened me, the voice that helped me through the hard times, the voice that translated the negative days into positive ones,
The voice of my beloved self...was it disguised all along?

I’m Ready
Mellow waves Jul 2018
Sometimes i want to scream,
I want to let it out,
I want to become another person,
I want to forget the past, and hope for the best.

I want to start a new journey,
End an old  propensity
Trust me when i say,
Today is the day i show the world my true self.

I’m not afraid anymore,
I’m ready, ready to take control
Ready to blossom and take wings,
I’m ready to fly.

Life’s Beauty
Mellow waves Apr 2018
Life as we know is surprising,
I wake up every morning wondering if i’m living in a dream or in a reality,
One day you’re the happiest person alive, and one day you’re miserable,
One day you feel blessed, and one day you feel like the world is against you,
One day you feel your heart beating fast, and one day you feel lonely.
One day you’re alive, and one day you’re dead.
Well, i guess there lies the beauty of life

Where Am I?
Mellow waves Apr 2018
I am finally here,
I am finally home,
I am finally where i longed to be.

I am safe, secure, loved,
Yet unsafe, tangled up, misunderstood,
Stuck between a nightmare and a lost dream.

Muddled
Mellow waves Mar 2019
My eyes are wet once again,
I close them immediately to picture myself in a place far away from here,
For a second i feel safe and secure,
Then reality knocks hitting my eyelids harder than the howling of the wind.

I’m wide awake,
Scared to look around,
I’m here yet my heart and mind are in that soothing place
Where love and hope were present,
Where people were free to be themselves,
Where happiness and diversity were respected,
Where people didn’t judge you for who you are.

Sadly life‘s sole aim has become vague..

My Savior
Mellow waves Apr 2018
I took a pen and started writing..
Started writing about my life,
About the cherishing people in it,
About the good times and the hard times,
About the happiness and the struggle.

I wrote and wrote until there was nothing to say,
All the memories disappeared, leaving nothing but a trace,
My mind was empty, so was my soul,
And at that moment i was ultimately iced.
Was that all that i made out of life?

Then, poetry found me..
I realized it took me to places far away from reach,
It made me see the world around me in a better and bigger picture,
It helped me express my feelings,
Express what i feel and what i don’t,
What i love and what i don’t,
It literally changed my life completely.

Feign World
Mellow waves Jan 2019
Life is timeless with friends they say..
But honestly i don’t know who my real friends are,
I don’t know who loves me for me and who enjoys my company,

Feign compassion is all i see..


Friends are supposed to build one another,
Make each other stronger and happier
Make one another feel unstoppable,

Feign love is all i see..

I don’t know whom to trust,
Whom to call my best friend, whom to turn to in times of despair and whom to call,

A sincere friend..

Confusion
Mellow waves Nov 2019
Its been a while
Writing was my only smile,
Then came life
And now i’ve lost my drive,

It’s easy to laugh
On others behalf,
but the confusion that’s found, inside my heart
Made me forget why we’re five feet apart.

I don’t know if this poem makes sense,
But i am writing this with great suspense
I was once sure what my life was like,
But know i am as lost as a child in the dark.

Chaotic Chaos
Mellow waves Feb 2020
Ashes and fire are all I see
I want my father alive to be,
The rain was pouring heavily,
My mother was shouting dreadfully

Confusion and chaos followed me
Every time I tried to breathe,
I hoped someone would pinch my knee
To wake up and see it was all a dream

My sister and I tried to be
The strongest we could ever be
Thank God He never leaves
The side of a person who has faith in him.

Lebanon
Mellow waves Aug 2020
You were once my dream, my shelter, my pride
You were one in a million wherever I flied,

You were the safest place for me to hide,
You were the reason i was able to glide,


Now, innocent people are passing by,
Leaving us heartless and barely hanging by,

I don’t even know how i feel inside,
There’s a fire inside me I cannot ignite,


Broken, shattered and dead inside
The only thing left is my soul outside,

Alone, damaged in this cold and icy skies,
Shaking, shimmering, hoping Lebanon will rise


Not now, not today, not even tomorrow
Lebanon, i can feel your pain, aggression and sorrow

You were once my guide, my inspiration, my smile
Now I don’t even know how many ****** clothes you’ve piled.
August 4, 2020
Dozens were killed and thousands injured in a massive explosion in Beirut.
Please mention Lebanon in your prayers! We really need it!

My Hero
Mellow waves Feb 20
I met the bravest warrior ever,
She goes by the name “my sister”

Selflessly taking care of covid patients,
She is truly a walking angel,

God knows how much I love her,
Her heart is one like no other

A pure gem and a safe haven,
Holding me through all the darkness and danger

I intentionally did not make this poem rhyme,
I wanted her to see that,

No matter what I write, how well I write,

The only beauty one can see after reading this piece is without a doubt,
Her loving and shining personality,

Shining brighter than any imperfection and mistake,
Shining brighter than any word I can make!

Help!
Mellow waves Jun 2020
I was a person who saw every stranger as a survivor,
A survivor of love,
A survivor of death,

I was a person who saw every stranger as a kindhearted soul,
A soul that had saved a dog from a car crash,
A soul that had climbed a huge ladder to put out a fire,
A soul that had painted the longest picture in the world with his daughter,
A soul full of life, hope and adventure,

But unfortunately,
Now whenever I look at a stranger,
I see a hopeless being searching for shelter, food, rights and independence
I see black and white, instead of colors,
I see broken hearts, instead of happily ever afters,

I see oppressed people in need for help,
I see a world full of darkness and danger.

Hope
Mellow waves Jan 2020
Some people seek attention,
I seek ascension

Some seek wealth,
I seek strength

Others seek fame,
I seek claim

I love how i’m unraveling myself little by little
Maybe someday i’ll give myself an acquittal,

Change this world for the better
And end up with a love letter.

— The End —
