2nd of April: B = Balcony + your Captain’s Birthday


State Of Day.  if you’re in a hurry scroll down to today’s poem, if you’re not well, you know your Captain when she lose control, enjoy.

And it has rolled again people!
My birthday

To me 

O Allah I ask you to keep me, my family and country safe.
What are my other wishes?
Oh! I can proceed to no end :)
as a woman I wish to become;

as passionate, influential and incredibly empathetic as queen Rania of Jordan

Classy as Amena Kin & Easy going like Boshra

Sophisticated and strong as Muna Abu Sulayman while Fit and healthy the way Kara Goucher is

And all in all graceful and emotionally clever like Shahirah Elaiza

For my writing I can dream to become:

As Suburb as Kazuo Ishiguro & Imaginative as David Mitchell

overload of talent, Ah! I feel dizzy
Pioneering as Tahereh Mafi & Original as Marissa Meyer

And pretty much Legendary as J.K.Rowling

And finally loyal to who I am and what I believe like Daniel Alarcon

(Can I also ask for my father’s generosity and my mother’s hospitality?
Oh! I can? okay thanks)

A2Z Challenge 

Okay that’s enough self-indulgence for one day (in a year!).
My friends send me good vibes and let’s get to today’s poem

Looking from the balcony at the happenings
The Life passing me by
walls of thorns rise in front of me
And the velvety curtain of Darkness falls
Screaming in despair
Sighing in boredom
I claw my way out
 of Shelob’s lair
and I summon Sting
Listen to me
I’m not alienating you
except sometimes
I’m a one-act-show
And although
You may wait down my balcony
One apocalyptic night
Rushing me to come down
so we can save the world together
Trust me I’m all in
Only at times
I need the action on my own pace
Drive on
Begin the journey
You will find me at the gate of Moria
Waiting for you
 Setting fire

to a pile of dead Goblins

like it? Join me tomorrow
