In the Shadows of Men


Write …

She yelled in my ears…

In writing you will be.

Stop scattering in the parts of your self.

Stop hiding in the shadows of the others.


You are your own god…

Do not allow any other human to be your god.

Or your inspiration …

For you are the inspiration of your own self.

God is within you …

Let this inspiration guide your way.



In writing lies life.

Writing is a virtue that many don’t possess.

And you are elaborately flowing …

Writing is creativity

And creativity is existence

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...

  1. When you say, ‘write right’ Ned Hamson,
    What does that exactly mean?

    The people who do not have faith in themselves look for it outside….Patriarchy smells..
    So do ‘men’ who proclaim they are ‘feminists’
    Thank You Nadia.

  2. May I also say….it seems to be a trend among ‘Men’ to call themselves ‘femininist’ when their behaviour is otherwise!
    Proven…the gene pool is sadly lacking.

  3. p.s.
    When asking my daughter as to why the men call themselves ‘feminist’ she said…
    ” Oh,Mum, they just wanna get liked and get laid!”
    that’s the wisdom of the younger generation…
