YOU & ME


My friend Reem wrote this poem and asked me to post it on my blog for better understanding, and I wouldn’t say no.

Muslim is Me,
Christian is He, BUT
Brothers are We,
Equal should Be, WHY?!

In the name of Humanity we live,
Under the Sky, on Earth, and behind the Cliffs,
The Birth of us Adam & Eve gave,
From Water & Clay are just Ourselves,
Modest, Calm, Down-to-Earth is our Level,

Mark & Muhammad CAN Coexist,
In Both Civilizations that Persist,
On integration & Unity so this is our Benefit,
Dialogue, Cooperation, progress are an asset,
In a Society where Success & patience are our Habit,
"Peace, Happiness, Mercy & Love try to Spread",

"Oh No ! Don't kill any Creature,
Never Destroy a Church or Harm any Preacher,
Women, Babies, and Old Take Care,
Plants & Roses, You Don't Dare",

"Oh here is an Ant Don't Step"!
"A Thirsty Dog, Please give a Sip"!

That is OUR Prophet's Say,
This is OUR Islam Way,
Proud of them till Doomsday!!

Freedom & Respect are OUR Feature,
So How Come Mocking OUR TEACHER!! (Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him).

  • FANTASTIC!!!
    Thank you very much Ghalia, forward this thanks to your the autor.
    I am really happy to read that poème at the office, that makes me thinking positively, a sort of apetizer (aperitif) before the main dish (plat principal) with Mahmud Darwish this week end in Bruxelles...
    Keep going on this way, Arabs, Muslims have to be proud, Ghalia, are you?

  • Ghalia, that is a great poem. Tell your friend Reem she did a fantastic job on that. I will be looking at your blog everyday just to read it for all the positive it has in it. Hope others do the same.

  • A sweet poem, and I agree--we can appreciate each other, despite we'll not always see eye-to eye.
    Let's judge others by the same standard we judge ourselves...that's the basis for common understanding.

  • Thanks Ghalia for this post. You are advancing some great, positive ideas on this blog that I am sure will make an impact. And if you get any nasty "hate mail" from people who disagree, be proud. When people try to discredit your ideas or actions, that's when you know you're doing something valuable.

  • Poetry is a powerful way to communicate the feelings that normal words just can't convey. It would be good if many more poems and songs were written to insist on tolerence and compassion.

    There are thousands of recognized languages in the world, tens of thousands of religions and perhaps hundreds of thousands of identifiable cultures. It would take a very brave soul indeed to claim that their personal combination is the one true way. History, however, would suggest that it is not a particularly useful form of bravery.

    In a world where communication is so very hard, poetry is universally heard and speaks at a much deeper level inside than prejudice. If for no other reason than that, keep writing.

  • Consider:
    The missing element in every human 'solution' is
    an accurate definition of the creature.

    The way we define 'human' determines our view
    of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
    future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
    in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.
    Choose wisely...there are results.

    Many problems in human experience are the result of
    false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
    in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

    Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly
    developed, and sensitive perception of diversity. Thus
    aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enact-
    ing internal mental and external physical selectivity.
    Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends
    itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
    his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
    that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
    ence intent on the development of perceptive
    awareness and the following acts of decision and
    choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
    him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
    making process and include the cognition of self,
    the utility of experience, the development of value-
    measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
    ation of civilization.

    The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
    customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
    his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
    creative process, is a choice-making process. His
    articles, constructs, and commodities, however
    marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
    atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
    highest expression of the creative process.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
    significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
    fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
    forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
    ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
    natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
    bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
    singular and plural brow.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
    nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
    Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
    characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
    foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
    spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
    ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
    universe.

    Let us proclaim it. Behold!
    The Season of Generation-Choicemaker Joel 3:14 KJV
