I have a dear friend called Sara, one of the kindest and most generous of souls, she works tirelessly to help support refugees to settle in the UK.
You see, Sara is also a refugee, she came to England many years ago from Palestine. She didnt want to leave her homeland, but was forced to. She still dreams of returning one day.
Sara has not seen her parents for over 30 years, they live in Hebron, in the occupied West Bank. Sara's daughters have never met their grandparents.
Sara holds a Palestinian passport, her daughters have dual nationality and also hold Palestinian passports, and yet they are all denied entry to Palestine.
Her eldest daughter atttempted to enter the West Bank only last...
No longer fear
The opinions of others
No longer fear
Find the courage
When you dare
To stand alone
Then my friend
You are free
Either it felt like it was just yesterday,
Or it was ages ago.
We could never make peace with the pace of time.
Never present in the present.
What about now?
How about now?
Let it go.
A pressure that pressurizes you
To get a complete pressure
to become a depression.
A pressure of overthinking, overreacting
and self-completing by destroying self.
"Depression is nothing but a pressure"
"Don't take the pressure."
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger ﷺ as saying: A strong believer is better and is more lovable to Allah than a weak believer, and there is good in everyone, but cherish that which gives you benefit in the Hereafter and seek help from Allah and do not lose heart, and if anything in the form of trouble comes to you, don't say: If I had not done that, it would not have happened so and so, but say: Allah did that what He had ordained to do and your "if" opens the gate for the Satan.
-Sahih Muslim, Book 46, Hadith 52
No face is more monstrous than the monstrosity of the soul.
"I vow to help you love life to always hold you with tenderness to have the patience that love demands to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not to agree to disagree about red velvet cake to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home."
-The Vow ♡
Since when laughing became a sin?
Since when speaking your heart out
got off the beat?
Have ever working in peace & solace
Since when lowering down someone became
a visual treat..?
I just begun smiling away from my family,
Amidst the people who are kind & compassionate
How come it pinched you, I fail to understand,
Or you are just habituated of mending talks
& ruckus to create..
What's the charm to see someone demotivated?
How come the sadness in atmosphere
uplift your moral?
Moment's of happiness we all deserve,
This temporary happiness that "you" are enjoying
won't last long after all...!!
The Architects are Plotting
They send drones to scope the relief,
plan how much dynamite they need
to re-start this tired skyline,
translate road signs, rename rivers.
They arrive rather than return,
each home they plan a tomb for those
that hold keys to changed locks round necks.
The architects were efficient-
dug up a Jordanian crown*
which made all un-worked land a gift,
a grenade their orb, a ruler
their sceptre: coronation done.
They wore the crown, did not forge it.
The people here are just markers
on history pages written
by the ink splattered architects.
They scatter the squatters, who drift
from their plot or clump in tight packs
building toe to shoulder t...
Most Saturday mornings I wake a little while before my alarm goes off at six.
Why so early? Because I am part of a small faith community which has grown smaller as we’ve gone deeper into relational and spiritual growth. We are few, but mighty. Just about everyone who is part of the community gives of themselves whether or not they have the financial ability to give.
For the past few years I’ve taken on the task of putting together the chart books for the worship team. Often, I arrive early enough that I’m the one opening and unlocking doors and turning lights on.
Today when I arrived, there weren’t any chairs set up in preparation for our service. That was unusual, but, I decided to do my...
A guy was sitting on the bench in the park. He was upset. He was crying. People kept walking by him. No one asked him what the issue was.
A woman comes there with her 3 year old daughter. They sit on the same bench. That little girl looks at the guy and tells her mom: "Mom, why is uncle crying?'
Her mom: "I don't know sweetheart. Why don't you ask him?"
(The guy was listening all this.)
Girl to the guy: "Uncle. Don't cry. God listens to me. You tell me your problem, I'll ask him to help you."
Listening this, the guy smiles. The best smile he ever had. He was now sure that there still is some innocence in the world. Somehow, he forgot all his problems. It was like he was reborn....
As I look back at the history of man
I’m taken back by how most have lost the sense of compassion and morality
I find myself dreaming of the way life was so much more than social status
Now I had fully intended on uploading some festive magical Christmas background and write a melodic letter.
This combo of trees (I LOVE the smell of pine this time of year!!) and the design of that stamp just blew me away.
The colors blend so well together. The realistic pine needles sing the heavenly tunes of Christmas. The hands, the shape of a star, reminding all of us that humanity is a gift... equality is what will lead us out of darkness.
Good Job Lettrs Staff:) This is a warm and uplifting festive collaboration:)
#happy human right
The most important right we have is the right to LIVE and to LISTEN .
Many of you must be wondering live is OK but why listen because everyone here is listen to you just to respond you back .
Live,living involves a lot of experiences, life is like a curls of hair pretty when dressed up but hard to make it straight.
Let's be more kind ,
Let's be more humane

Love is not about the flowers and gifts and words. It's the actions. It's the comfort you find within the other person at times of stress and worry.
It's those silent moments full of conversations in the eyes.
It's those moments when you do silly things and laugh about it together.
It's the thought of having the feeling of another's against yours.
It's an oasis of serenity in the hurricane of life.
It's the wiping away of tears. It's the patiently listening while the other is angry and upset.
It's holding the other persons hand...gently caressing it to calm down the dragon infuriating inside.
It's makingthings work out no matter what happens. The fights and arguments are what build ...
Self love leads one to peace.

World used to be a very nice place, you know, evolution happened, apes transformed into humans, we learn to hunt and make fire, food chain was in balance, everything was at its pace and peace, but then, some fuck decided to bring "Religion" into the picture, and since then it's all insane.
I am speechless with the amount of things I want to say.
You were my big bro, we spoke like every single day.
So now comes a time where you no longer reside.
I cannot hold you for you are not by my side.
I am confused and I feel out of place in a world so still.
I don't know if the Devil is playing with me for the thrill?
But you see it all from Heaven I know you keep an eye.
So tell me to shape up, tell me to be strong, at least to try.
Maybe it has been me all along, struggling to find the truth.
I want to go back to the day, the day that I had my youth.
We were young and we were stupid, always laughing with a smile.
Please tell me the things I am feeling are okay, it stacks...
