BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN...

Before you complain...

KFC, BURGER KING, PIZZA HUT & MC DONALD.
FOREVER21, H&M, ALDO & LOUIS VUITTON.
MOVIES, MUSIC, CLUBS &...Complains make our world.
STOP.Try to see life through the eyes of this girl.
                                           

This girl whose world involves weapons,starvation & death.
She stares at the lifeless bodies of people she just met.

Little kids -her friends with whom she once played ball.
Now, have bullet holes on their heads as they fall.

The beautiful lady who stayed with her from the beginning -her mother,
watches ash-faced as her new born gets snatched from her forever.

The loud wails & cries can be heard from her neighbors,
because the children struggle to face the pangs of hunger.

Her dad, that one person who always stayed strong...
She watches as he struggles,helpless.As he breaks down.

Everyday for her remains the same.
Cold.Hunger.Fear & Pain.
Hardships,struggle & continuous strife.
Makes up her routine, her daily life.

Can you see our world the same way again?
will you now at least think twice...?
twice,before every complain.

GONE.



All that's left of him is the ghost of his being. 
A life shortened to flash backs and memories.
                                                                     
But its all I've got.                                         
And i guess its a gift from God.                     
That i see you smile in everyone of them.       
                                                                                  
RIP. hope you're smiling wherever you are :')            
Dedicated to my amazing uncle

REASON TO SMILE

   REASON TO SMILE

WITHOUT STRUGGLE THERE IS NO COMPASSION.
WITHOUT HARD WORK THERE IS NO SATISFACTION.
WHEN YOU THINK YOU JUST CANNOT DO IT ANYMORE,
IS WHEN YOU PUSH YOURSELF A LITTLE HARDER THAN BEFORE.
AND IF YOU BREAK DOWN & FEEL YOURSELF CRUMBLE.
YOU FALL TO THE GROUND, GETTING BACK UP IS A STRUGGLE.
JUST TURN AROUND,& YOU'LL SEE HOW YOU'VE COME SO FAR.
FEW MORE STEPS AND YOU'LL REACH THE STARS.
EVEN THE PRESTIGIOUS MEN & THEM ALL.
STAND WHERE THEY STAND NOW,PROUD & TALL.
BECAUSE THEY LEARNT TO STAND UP AFTER EVERY FALL.
THEY LEARNT THE RIGHTS THROUGH THE WRONGS & FAULTS.
NOT 'AFTER' BUT 'WITH' HARDSHIP COMES EASE IS THE PROMISE.
& THIS COULD BE YOUR TURNING POINT. YOUR ROAD TO SUCCESS. 
HOLD ON.FOR EVERY WINTER, HAS ITS SPRING.
 EVERY CATERPILLAR GETS ITS PAIR OF WINGS.
KEEP PUSHING YOURSELF & IT MIGHT TAKE A WHILE.
BUT THROUGH THE HARDSHIPS & PAIN...
YOU MIGHT FIND, YOUR REASON TO SMILE.

When Life Offers You Lemons...

WHEN LIFE OFFERS YOU LEMONS...,


Life is just strange. Now you may disagree,

But maybe by the end of this poem, you'll see it how i see...
Its true that you can never be right, without doing wrong.
Somehow you don't realize what you have, until its gone.
'Hello' is never very far from 'Goodbye'.
The happiest and funniest memories can make you cry.
There's a little bit of good in everything that's bad.
You cant be really happy unless you were depressed and sad.
You may have a sweet tooth but cannot live without spice.
When you're burdened or pressurized,good always comes with a surprise.
The fear could be greater than the danger itself.
A new 'day' begins, when at night the clock strikes '12'.
A few days after a new hair cut, you feel it was better before.
When your enemy has what you have, you don't like what you had anymore.
The prettiest rainbow appears after a horrible storm.
Only when you're bored, life seems real long.
Life is just strange. I'm sure you have agreed.
So the next time it offers you lemons and bitter-gourds,
Just know that its preparing you for something sweet.

 -Me!! =D

ROLE-MODEL


(FOR LADIES ONLY :D :P ;)
SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE SO MANY DIFFERENT ROLE MODELS,
GET A GLIMPSE OF MINE,

                 ROLE-MODEL                                         

SHE WAS THE FIRST HUMAN-BEING TO ACCEPT ISLAM.
TO   WHOM ALLAH, THROUGH AN ANGEL SENT HER SALAAM!
WHO WAS KNOWN AS THE PRINCESS OF THE TRIBE,
WHO EARNED MILLIONS WITHOUT USING INTEREST OR BRIBE.
WHO WAS CHOSEN BY ALLAH, AS THE PROPHETS’S 1ST LIFE PARTNER,
 WHO WAS THE ONLY ONE TO SUPPORT HIM, WHEN HE HAD THE GREAT MISSION ON HIS SHOULDERS.
AND WHEN HE CAME RUNNING TO HER SHAKING WITH FRIGHT,
SHE SOOTHED HIM IN SUCH WORDS MAKING HIS BURDEN LIGHT.
“I SWEAR TO YOU BY HIM IN WHOSE HANDS MY SOUL IS,HE WONT FORSAKE YOU.
BECAUSE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FAMILIES DO YOU UNITE,
YOU SIMPLY CANT BEAR THE POOR PEOPLE’S PLIGHT,
YOU ENTERTAIN GUESTS WITH AL YOUR MIGHT.
 AND IN THE PATH OF JUSTICE YOU FIGHT LIKE A KNIGHT”
THESE WERE HER WORDS WHEN HER HUSBAND SAW AN UNUSUAL SIGHT!
IN HER OWN WAY SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL AND GRACEFUL.
WHO BORE AND BROUGHT UP CHILDREN, WHO ARE GREAT EXAMPLES.
WHO TO HER PROPHET AND LORD WAS DUTIFUL,
WHOSE STRONG-PERSONALITY IS VERY HARD TO FIND.
WHO IS AN EXAMPLE FOR THE WHOLE MANKIND.
WHO WAS THE 1ST ONE TO GET THE GLAD TIDINGS OF PARADISE.
ALL HER WEALTH  AND TIME SHE WAS READY TO SACRIFICE.
WHO’S DEATH WAS MARKED AS ‘THE SORROWFUL YEAR”.
WHO’S MEMORIES ALWAYS BROUGHT THE PROPHET TO TEARS.
OF ALL THE UMMAH, SHE IS THE BEST FEMALE EVER BORN.
AND IS STILL A ROLE-MODEL YEARS AFTER SHE’S GONE.
HER SIMPLICITY, HONESTY,MODESTY AND LEADER-SHIP QUALITY.
HER TRUTHFULNESS, KINDNESS, INTELLIGENCE, AND PATIENCE.
HER RANGE OF UNDERSTANDING, HER SWEET WAY OF CARING
 CAME TO ME A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION.
AND WITH THIS INSPIRATION, HIT THE CLEAR REALIZATION.
THAT KHADIJA WAS JUST A NORMAL WOMAN LIKE ME AND YOU.
WHO JUST DID WHAT WAS RIGHT AND WHAT HER HEART TOLD HER TO.
WHO SHOWED US THAT BEING A WOMAN, IS NOT A BARRIER TO ANYTHING,
PROVING WRONG WHAT MOST NARROW-MINDED PEOPLE NOW-A-DAYS THINK,
 IT’S SO CLEAR, WE SHOULD SEE!

 THAT THIS IS A CHANCE GIVEN TO US BY THE GOD ALMIGHTY !

SO C’MON LETS SEIZE THIS OPPORTUNITY!
WITH SPEED OF WINGS LET’S HASTEN PAST,
 TO DREAM OUR DREAMS AND MAKE THEM LAST!
THIS IS FOR ALL THE MUSLIM WOMEN IN THE WORLD,
C’MON SHOW’EM! WHATCHA WAITING FOR GIRL?
GO AHEAD! ROCK AND SHINE! FOR IT IS HIGH TIME!
TO MAKE LIFE AN ADVENTURE AND HAVE SOME FUN,
AND INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING A ROLE-MODEL,
    YOU BECOME ONE!
 -LOVE YA LADIES !! ME =D

WE!

WE

WHAT WOULD BE TOM WITHOUT LITTLE JERRY,
WHAT WOULD CINDERELLA DO WITHOUT HER FAIRY.
WITHOUT THE ROUND SPECTACLES AND THE WAND WHO IS HARRY?
PUMBA WITHOUT TIMON ACTUALLY SOUNDS SCARY.
WITHOUT BOOKS WHAT WOULD A NERD DO?
HOW WOULD THE SEA LOOK WITHOUT THE SKY SO BLUE?
AND, WHAT,WHERE,WHO AM I WITHOUT YOU?
FOR ALL THE MEMORIES THAT I HAVE,YOU'RE SOMEHOW IN THERE.
ALL THE JOKES THAT I LAUGHED AT YOU ALWAYS DID YOUR SHARE.
WITH YOU ANNOYING ME BY MY SIDE,IVE NEVER FELT LONELY.
KNOWING YOU'DE JOIN ME,I COULD GO CRAZY COMPLETELY.
I COULD FACE YOU IN PJs, RUBBING MY EYES LOOKING LIKE FRANKENSTEIN WIFE,
SOMEHOW YOU MAKE EASIER ALL THE 'UPS' AND 'DOWNS' IN LIFE,
 YOU ALSO SEEM TO HAVE A PHD,
IN BEING MY BESTIE!
AND IF  DIVIDED INTO 2 IS MY HEART,
I'LL BE A HALF AND YOU'LL BE THE OTHER PART.
YET UNTIL TONIGHT,I LOOK UP AT THE SKY THINKING WHY IT SEEMS TO BE,
THAT THE PERSON SO CLOSE,IS YET SO FAR AWAY FROM ME.
BUT IF THERE'S ONE THING I LEARNT FROM YOU, ITS THAT
NEAR OR FAR, WHERE EVER WE ARE,
DISTANCE CAN DO NOTHING TO GET US AWAY FROM EACH OTHER......
SINCE OBVIOUSLY, WE BELONG TOGETHER....
FOR YOU'RE THE 'W' AND IM THE 'E'!
WHICH MAKES 'YOU' AND 'ME',
'US' AND 'WE'

                     written for my closest friends, hafse,maryam,jay,lala,salma especially, u're each so special to me in so many ways!love u guys!
            -ME!! :)

FACE REALITY-HEADLONG!

FACE THE REALITY!

You really think u can get away?
 with everything that you do?and everything that you say? 
u think u can say anything you please doesnt matter how the other person feels?
 u think the whole world revolves around you? 
defined as 'great' is everything that u do.
 u think u can go on this way in life? 
making the other persons life more of a strife.
 you think u dont need 'sweet' family and friends? 
u dont belong here because ur 'unique' or 'different'? 
u think life's too short and comes once so lets go crazy? 
eat, have fun in the 'cool' way and just be lazy?
 then think again - big time- coz ur seriously wrong  
and ull see and understand that, when ur in some sort of trouble
and the 'cool favourite characters from ur friends, movies or songs,
 suddenly disappear and burst ur little 'cool' bubble 
and ull fall real hard from beautiful cloud nine  
and suddenly everything u were interested in, will lose its shine.
 so before that , just stop and think  
coz ur right life's short and it'll go off in a blink
 so get a grip on yourself, a grip on reality 
and one day ull realize, that in a simple , honest and sweet life lies  real true beauty.  


-ME
