What a woman needs is a state of emotional independence. Once achieved, only then can she be referred to as “independent”

It’s over. The 30-year reign of Mubarak is over. The will of the thousands of pharaohs down the streets of Egypt has made a dream come true. An era with no Mubarak has begun!! An era of dignity and pride, an era of truth, humanity,  equality and success driven by the power of unity and peace!!

There’s no more a silly mythical regime to haunt us down. No more bribes, no more corruption. We’re now in charge of our country, and we’ve taken an oath to build it all over again, to make it better; the one and only way it should be!

I love every inch of this country. I’ve always loved it, and I always will!

I’ve realized my political background was nill. I realized that I was stupid enough not to know. But this, has made it crystal clear. Who’s behind all that corruption is no longer a question with no answer, for the 25th of January has erupted all answers.

At some point, I was confused. By the time the revolution has reached it’s peak, by the time I saw my people exploited, if not tormented to death, mixed feelings had torn me apart, shattering me into pieces, not knowing what should I be doing, on which side should I possible stand!

you guys know what is really pissing me off? is that all comments make sense, to the extend I no longer know what to believe, expect and which side I should b on.

Mubarak sucks, we all know that. If not, then it’s the government he assigned that has got him, us and the whole country, down the drain. But is it getting any better now with all the chaos and the panic? Will it get any better after he leaves? If he leaves, who’s next? and what if we don’t like the next dude? go for another revolution?
and during the transition period before the elections with no president, doesn’t that give rise to whatever assholes with agendas to seek power??
Again, who knows, there could probably be no Agenda in the first place, but again we can’t deny otherwise!

What was before 25th Jan, involved inhumanity and injustice, and wot’s after the 25th, what is basically going on is horribly insecure and absurd.
Yes I am confused, and weirdly objective! I can’t find a side worth supporting. I, like everyone else, want what’s best for this country, but I can’t see where that “best” is…

And the moment I heard the Vice president, Omar Solaiman, declare Mubarak’s resignation, I felt weirdly ecstatic! I was happy life would soon b back to normal, if not better! I was happy seeing my people cheer up. Egypt was literally partying!!

I realized, fear of the unknown was what was holding me back. But by the time there was no Mubarak, by the time the unknown was slowly unveiling itself, I’ve come to understand that the revolution has actually literally freed us! Freedom is no longer a myth! Egypt is now heading towards having a proper peaceful civilian and political  life!!

They were right from the very beginning:

HE HAD TO GO!

HIS GOVERNMENT,  POLITICAL PARTY and all dirty twisted means and corruptive methods HAD TO GO!!

I’ve realized, I owe my life thanking those who started the 25th revolution, and similarly, I owe a sincere sorry for every pico-second I’ve possible wasted on doubtful concerns and insecurity. RIP, those who’ve lost their lives freeing our souls, may their souls rest in peace. They’re all alive in our weeping, thankful hearts!!

We’ve got our country back. We’re now in charge for leading a better Egypt. We’re all together in this, and this country bounds us together. No more conspiracy theory!

The Nile runs in my veins ❤

And if I hadn’t made it clear up till now;

بحبك يا بلادى
I love you, my country
Je t’aime, mon pays
Ich liebe dich, mein Land
Ti amo, il mio paese
Te amo, mi país
Eu te amo, meu país
Я люблю тебя, моя страна
Ben, ülkem seni seviyorum
Σ ‘αγαπώ, η χώρα μου
我爱你,我的国家

Worth the smile

Posted: February 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

You’ve got a smile that makes my day, and a laugh that lights up my entire world. Seeing you happy is all what matters, and making you feel so is what I’m there for.
And when you’re sad, so sad… i’m left helpless, not knowing how to make you feel better…not knowing how to comfort you… My world crashes- I’ve failed to make the one person that matters smile.
I’d want to hold you close, so close… whisper words of peace into your ears… I’d want to take your pain away, to let it go… Futher away. If not, then I’d want to share it with you, grip your hands frimly, and assure you, with all faith I’ve got, that it’s going to be alright…
I wish I could be the one person, out of everyone else that you’d escape to when you need help, that you’d just reach out for whenever you’re feeling down, or anywhere close. I wish… I wish I could be the one person who’s capable of putting back the smile to your decent face… Just to make you smile… Because that’s all what matters!
I wanna be there for you…I wanna make it up for anything and everything painful you’ve ever been through…

If only you let me.

 

This is something I found in one of my very old drafts… Something that no longer means anything…

 

Freedom for all

I turn to You…

Posted: February 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

What I feel is too complicated to be laid down in simple words. What my mind is restrained with in confusion is far too messed up to be presented in a well structured sentence. My words fail me, and I fail myself because for the first time I stand caught up with the emotional turmoil in me to the extend that I can’t talk it out… It’s too much, way too much that I just don’t know what exactly to start with, what exactly to top my list with for every time I try listing them my thoughts flood in my brain, rushing in chaos, and leaving me in both emotional and mental distress.

I’m down to my knees. I look up to the sky, far beyond the concrete ceilings, far beyond whatever barrier that lays upon me, and find myself saying nothing but “Ya Rab!”. I try to fetch a few more words, I try to structure a prayer, but I only find myself saying it over and over again: “Ya Rab… Ya Rab!!”.

Ya Rab…

Shower your mercy on our Egypt… Protect it from whatever damage that destiny beholds, that lays ahead and before us! Ya Rab, save our Egyptians out there, shower your mercy and guidance on them so that they end up doing what’s right.

Ya Rab…

The youth of Egypt,  they turn to you! The poor, the rich, the elderly and the young… Everyone, they all need you! I turn to you… My mind is distracted, I’M distracted! I’m lost between the fading edge almost separating what’s right and what’s wrong. I’m lost… Not knowing on which side I stand… on which side SHOULD I stand… The more the facts unveil themselves, the more I’m left confuzzled!

One thing is crystal clear, I’m on Egypt’s side, just like the millions out there. I’m for whatever is best for  our Egypt. Our one and only Egypt….

Ya Rab, May this crisis end soon…

Egypt – The Revolution

Posted: February 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

25th January; The rebirth. 25th January was, and still is up to this very moment, a turning point to the lives of each and every single egyptian alive. The revolutionary demand for a better change is brought to life, is brought to action! I’m not into politics, and all it’s critical complications were of no interest to me. What is going on in Egypt, OUR EGYPT, breaks my heart! My beloved Egypt, what on earth is going on?? It’s indeed time for some change, for some action! Speak out loud, the time is now! It kills me seeing my people suffer, and get exploited as they ask for vital essentials of living…

The protests were peacefull and the protestants are keeping it as peacefull as peaceful can be. I’ve got friends who marched along the streets of Egypt on the 25th of January, and simply described it the following day as “Beautiful!”

Looking at where this is going now, and the dirty unknown third hands of destruction that are constantly trying to mingle within the protestants and the peaceful people of Egypt with the aim of ruining whatever peace and security we’ve maintained so far, I’m left to wonder… I’m left to ask myself questions that I know for sure that all egyptians out there are asking themselves the same thing too, “Who’s behind all that???”

What is going on has made me reconsider the former, my former objective thoughts regarding politics and has urged me to try understanding the several political aspects concerned.

News never answers that question, but adds to our lists of suspects. Who to blame? They, and I’m cluless of what the pronoun refers to, have tried several times turning our peaceful protests and marches into chaios and lately into what I personally see as an attempt to turn it into a civil war between supporters and proponents! That’s probably what “they” want it to look like…

And everytime they do, they fail for we’re stronger than what anyone thinks we are. We’re united, and we’re aware of their manipulations… I’m not quite sure what term best describes it, Conspiracy or a personal specific agenda, but whatever it actually is, I know for sure that we are able to get over what they’re trying to do!

The millions of Egyptians have gone on this protest all around Egypt, all around the Squares, have marched down the streets, across the roads and through the alleys with the one and only aim, with the one and only hope for a better Egypt! These people have presented their thoughts in the most civilized ways, if not everyone, then certainly most of them! These people want what is best for this country, and no matter what happens the well-being of our beloved Egypt tops the list!!

The tiny little bit I’ve lived throughout this revolutionary week is nothing, absolutely nothing, compared to what people are going through down there. I ask the Lord to protect Egypt, to protect it’s citizens, and keep every inch of it’s lands safe and peaceful for eternity. If this protest is turning into a crisis, then I hope whatever negativity that still persists fades away and quickly! May God keep our Mighty Egypt protected from whatever panic and catastrope that could possibly await it. May God guide us and our people towards serenity.

The revolutionary 25th, followed by the Raging Friday, the March of the millions and whatever epics “Tahrir Square” and all other streets and cities have witnessed or shall yet be witnessed, are classics History beholds…
And The love I hold for my Egypt, my people, is far beyond whatever meanings words could convey!!

Woe!
