in the shadows cov


She yelled in my ears.

In writing you will be.

Stop scattering the parts of yourself.

Stop hiding in the shadows of others.


You are your own God.

Do not allow another human to become 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 many don’t possess

And you are elaborately flowing.

Writing is creativity

And creativity is existence.


I see you standing at a crossroads

Looking at yourself

Unsure which path to take.

The road everyone chooses?

Becoming like everyone else?

Or to be you,

You the writer.


Writing is your creativity drawn in words.

Do not leave it,

But hold it up.

Marry writing.

It is what remains.


Be you,

You the Goddess.

Do not allow a god to drive you or inspire you.

You are the path

And the inspiration.

Write and inspire.

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...
