Não sei se é sonho se realidade – Fernando Pessoa Setembro 19, 2007

Filed under: Fernando Pessoa,poesia — looking4good @ 6:00 pm

Não sei se é sonho se realidade,
Se uma mistura de sonho e vida,
Aquela terra de suavidade
Que na ilha extrema do sul se olvida.
É a que ansiamos. Ali, ali,
A vida é jovem e o amor sorri.

Talvez palmares inexistentes,
Áleas longínquas sem poder ser,
Sombra ou sossego dêem aos crentes
De que essa terra se pode Ter
Felizes, nós? Ah, talvez, talvez,
Naquela terra, daquela vez.

Mas já sonhada se desvirtua,
Só de pensá-la cansou pensar,
Sob os palmares, à luz da lua,
Sente-se o frio de haver luar.
Ah, nesta terra também, também
O mal não cessa, não dura o bem.

Não é com ilhas do fim do mundo,
Nem com palmares de sonho ou não,
Que cura a alma do seu mal profundo,
Que o bem nos entra no coração.
É em nós que é tudo. É ali, ali,
Que a vida é jovem e o amor sorri.

aprender a volar

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 5:37 pm

hay gente que flota
por el mundo
volando con las alas
de su alma

hay gente que no anda
sólo repta
arrastrados sin calma

Abre las alas pues
y vuela alto…
deja detrás las simas del espanto
y mírate volar
sobre el asfalto.

No seas fantasma gris
sino abejorro
trino y canto
sol y nube rota
y cerro y río y valle y cima
y todo

que estamos para vos ,en los abrazos
solo juntos
solo
de ese modo.

 

Finding Me

Written almost five years ago.. just wanna share it as my first post here at WBU.

Finding Me
July 27, 2002


In the past year, I’ve lost a lot. Things have dramatically changed in my life that now I somehow feel lost. I remember a professor in college once told our class that the only constant thing in this world is change, and that every human must be equipped with these changes. I know for a fact that He was telling the truth but I must admit that I’ve always had a hard time coping up with change, I constantly wanted things to stay the way they are. As time passes by, I found myself in a relentless battle of wanting to turn back time and go on living in the past. I try not to have many regrets in my life, because despite everything I am quite thankful for the experiences that contributed to who I am today.

It’s been two years since I graduated from college and bumping with an old friend reminded me of how much I miss that part of my life. When life was still so simple, I miss just hanging around a friend’s dorm and the endless chatting. It’s amazing how things could change in just two years. I was doing great after college, I found a great job, a wonderful family, my friends can still hang out and I’ve got somebody who loves me. It may seem to you that I got everything. Yes, I think did! I was on my road to success and the future ahead looks so promising. I almost got everything I wanted for my life and I thought it would stay that way. It turns out I was very wrong.

You can never really realize how God can change all things in just a snap, in a blink of an eye… It all happened in one morning when I woke up with fever and can’t feel my body from waist down, I can hardly move. No amount of medical explanation can make me understand what happened to me. I was diagnosed to have a rare disease that even with the modern technology can’t quite explain how and why I got it. For six months, I battled for this sickness and depression found its way on me. I was terrified, I am only 24 yrs old how can it be happening to me? I often ask God, why does it have to be me? What have I done to deserve this? I was living an almost perfect life, then why all this? There were so many nights that all I could do was cry and I wanted so much to hate God for allowing me to suffer. During the sickness, I have to quit my job, I couldn’t go anywhere because I couldn’t walk, I stopped seeing my friends for I don’t want them to take pity on me, I lost the love of someone whom I thought was the one for me, I lost a father and amidst all that I somehow lost myself.

You would say that it’s enough reason for me to be angry with God but I’m not, I can’t be mad to the One I owe everything with, to the One who had blessed me with such wonderful things. But I knew that my life will never be the same, I will never be the same. Somewhere between the anguish, the hopelessness and the pain made me drift away to the way I used to be. Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss myself the most. How do I find me? Where should I start? And sometimes I wonder if I wanted the old me to be found.

Slowly, I’m getting back on track. I got my job back, reunited with some old friends and enjoying with newfound buddies and a new me. Am I happy? Hmm, I’m getting there, but there are still times that I wished that things didn’t have to change. It still brings me to tears and sleepless nights. I have so much to be thankful for, this is my second chance in life and I may still screw up from time to time but one thing I learned from the past was… everything happens for a reason, for a purpose and we may not truly comprehend why it was brought to us, perhaps it is simply meant to be. God knew that I was losing my path towards Him that’s why He made sure that I’d come back into His arms. There was no way that I could have predicted the future and there is nothing I can do to bring back the past, so I might as well live my life each day as it comes.

Finding me…

Nah, I don’t have to. I am already found!

My favorite city is Amsterdam.

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 2:16 pm

I am enjoying the music I see here. I would like to add my favorite, this is a very Dutch song sung already for many years. This rap group has members whose parents were born everywhere but Netherlands.
They they are born here. And planning to stay here for the rest of their lives.
They made this old song theirs.
Enjoy.

 

I am Brand NEW

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 8:11 am

It is the first time for me to blog here as i have just joined the WUB yesterday

i can’t express to you how i am so excited for writing to different kinds of people from all over the world. I am always a fan of the spritiual meaning of globalization which involves gathering people around and writing about us,our habits, favours, interests, comments on what is going around us. Actually i am an egyptian by nature but i have lived in Dubai(UAE) for 16 years so i am so infected by the idea of globalization

I can assume that this is the first time i see a gathering of well-educated people like you from all earth’s continentals contributing in a beautiful literature work.

the last thing about me is that i love ginger alot. it is a useful plant which has many merits. i love ginger to the extent that i even named my blog by its name which is pronounced in arabic “zangabeel”

i am now in the petroleum institute studying there as a freshman and i have to go now because i have a geology class after ten minutes and the teacher tend to check the attendance every class so goodbye and see you later
