Chronicles of a Brainless Existence


Chronicles of a Brainless Existence 


Lost in the endless labyrinth of existence 
Seeking the truthful meaning of my essence
In the deepest hole
In the darkest space
I feel small
I am not whole
I am nothing
***************************
The eternal dilemma 
A vortex blew my mind
Who am I?
Am I a soul?
Am I a corpse?
Do I exist?
Can I resist?
***************************
Lost in the enigma of all the times
Seeking definitions for all the crimes
Who are we?
Creatures of one God?
or sons of anarchy?
***************************
An infinity of philosophies
still living in one's mind
An infinity of pathologies
still killing the human kind
***************************
The human in me
the only part I can't save
Who said we're superiors?
Who said we're out of the cave?
***************************
I can't see the light
in this bloody hurricane 
We still kill, we still fight
Same wars, same greed
same 'us", same need:
We kill for power
We kill for money
Shame on us
The brain left the body!

HOMOPHOBIA IN TUNISIA



HOMOPHOBIA IN TUNISIA: PEOPLE HATE GAYS BECAUSE OF WHAT NON-GAY PEOPLE DO!


Homophobia in Tunisia is a very common unhealthy attitude. Unlike many people think, homophobia is due to various factors besides the religious one. It’s out of question today, as it always has been, to talk in public about gay rights.
Recently, bringing this cause to the political speeches, which is very rare, is seen as an immoral act; overly loathed and misunderstood. I can spend hours talking about the reasons of people’s intolerance. But I am here today to talk about a personal experience.
I spoke about the gay matter 5 times tops, it’s not really one of the favorite topics here… People I spoke to, mentioned “Any way, it’s a sin” as their last argument to end the discussion.
I was surprised to hear numerous arguments which are about the conducts of psychologically-disturbed persons or non-gay people. Some of them mentioned rape as the main reason why they despise homos.
I heard some stories as “you know they rape young boys” “they are a bunch of sexually-obsessed freaks”. Hold on, are they really talking about the right subject? Yes, many people here don’t know the difference between pedophiles and gays.
Other arguments were like “Men sleep with each other just for fun; in the end they will marry a woman”. First, they blindly think that being gay is all about the sex. They don’t believe that they can have other relationships, love or be committed to each other. Second, they forgot that some straight people are unfaithful; as well we can’t have all gays faithful and monogamous.
Moreover, it seems that those homophobic people don’t know that men who are willingly with men then with women are not gay; they are bi and this is another subject…  In fact, the unfortunate reason why “real gays” marry women in Tunisia is HOMOPHOBIA; the homophobic family and the intolerant society.
To sum up, people hate gays because of what non-gay people do! Back to facts, There is no convenient ways to do a “coming out” in Tunisia. Gays or suspected to be gay-persons are bullied in high-schools, called names and even beaten up. When they grow up, they are considered dangerous and corrupted men. They are marginalized and insulted daily. Being what they are is yet penalized in the Tunisian legislation. It’s difficult to find jobs and most of them end up to be desperate and suicidal.

The Kingdom of Lies

The Kingdom of Lies


You know!
this country was never yours!
You know!
you are living under bombs!
Aren't you sick
of walking over corpses?
The kingdom of lies
you built
one day will fall apart
………….
Did the wasted lives
and destroyed homes
give the happiness
to the sad tel-aviv ??
Tudah( תודה)! We've got enought pain! Tudah(תודה)
**********
The soulless bubble you kill for
Is it safe anymore?
………………
Watch the kingdom of lies
newly named streets and towns
Will the Hebrew wash away
the name of father and son?
***********
You built your own fantasy
on the ruins of Palestine
 The truth you chose misery
and suns which never shine
Chukran (شكرا)! We've got enough pain! (شكرا)Chukran

The Burning Roads


The Burning Roads

Don't try
to dry
your tears
today
Just show your
pain
under the
rain
Don't hold them
today
No one will see them 
today
It will be like a flower 
in spring
like a new spouse
with a ring
you don't have 
to stay
you don't have 
to pray!
give your Lord
a rest!
and fight for
yourself!
**************************
your tears when
they fall
hurt more than
a ball
let them fall
kill them all
let speak, for once,
your free soul
**************************
I don't think
that sun can save you
when darkness 
is living inside you
**************************
You can't survive
in a world so norrow 
It's daily killing you
your never-ending sorrow
**************************
Furious you are
Now explode 
Blow, blow
Blow your sadness 
and go, draw
Draw an expression
on a smileless face...
***************************
Will they feel?
As ice under sun's heat?
Will they feel?
Your bleeds which never heal?
***************************
Behind the careless eyes 
they hide one million tears 
and  like when tide does rise
Life will be so deep
Break the meaningless lines
Prove there's no signs
you will die when you want to
It's a path that you must walk through
*******************************
You can end the mental game
After two decades,
you still the same!
Beat your nothingness
with a new mind size
You can be more than what you are
you can see more, travel too far
*******************************
Stop war time
Stop the crime 
Don't walk with hatred
the burning roads
Red blood will always be red
No matter what they did
No matter what they said
********************************
There is no fill
to fire's hanger
look at the bleeds
falling on cinder
It's like that ruins
are feeding its anger
Will they now see?
Will they now wonder?

Dedicated to opinion prisonners: I am Free


I am Free

I am free
Even locked in the jail
I am free
And I feel no pain
You can tie my hands
But I’m still free
You can torture me
I will keep free
You think your tyranny
And my countless injuries
Can stop me
No I’m free
************************
What if bleeds will never heal?
You think I won’t be free?
************************
You can burn my papers
Words are free
You can burn my paints
Colours are free
You think I’ll mourn the body
While my soul is free
I am free
Even locked in the jail
I am free
And I feel no pain
***************************
You can’t catch every flying bird
‘Cause it’s free
You can’t hunt every running horse
‘Cause it’s free
****************************
You’re glad that you have me
Outside: a million of me
And we’re all free.

Hymn of the world


Hymn of the world


Hymn I hear
In the earth spin
An eternal love
For God and peace
So how did man
leave his good piece?
*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *
Howl I hear
In the earth spin
And its echo
Burning the dead fields
Good bye, man’s last good piece
*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *
When I listen to a temple
I hear fake prayers
I see Satan heirs
I see people wearing a cross
Or praying, in a day, five times
Doing the most horrible crimes
*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *
Honest hearts aren’t many
Will they sing out loud
the hymn of the world?
Will they bring to the sky
the sun of faith?
*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *
Will they feed the hollow souls?
Will they warm the frigid cores?
Show to the cruel ones
What’s fair and what’s unfair
Why care and why don’t care
 *   *   *   *   *   *    *   *
People here bleed
During night and light
They don’t know what they need
They just die unknown
Instead of hearing life sounds
I hear last breaths in a new tomb..

The God We Share


The God We Share


Is this the one God Call?
That I hear in the world’s prayers
Will I reach the sky or fall?
Find out who are the payers
Will I touch a heart,
which was frozen for long?
With my inside melody
My never ending song
Who will pay for dividing
God in three or more?
Who will pay for hiding
our common belief core?
God, we don’t divide
We do simply share
Why these earths collide?
Then pretend we care
Why they’re full of war?
All blood and souls, what for?
People who lived are gone
They never took a stone
Hear the death eternal word
There’s nothing you can save
No matter what you fight for
You take nothing to the grave…

Duel


Duel

You draw a smile to take a tear
You give us hope then more fear
You give chocolate then shoot a soul
You give then break one baby doll
You give us pens then blow a school
You say we're free, it's just a tool
Why have you to give then take?
Why have you to fix then break?
You are the "host", we're the hostage
Let up your acting, pick up your luggage
Just go away, stop your polish
Hey! we're not that foolish
- Our hope went on pieces
- Just hang on, just go on
- Our dream went on pieces
- Just wait, keep moving on
- I can't wait the promised pradise
- Believe me the sun will rise
- After the sunrise there's the sunset
  After the light, the dark I met
- You get sick, I am the cure
  Believe me, you'll be so secure
- I can't believe you any more
  Your speech just missed the core
  the gloomy road, that's what I chose 
  I can't be patient, the fury rose
  All my life long I could'nt understand
  Your duel philosophy, How does it stand??
  How can you give then take?
  How can you fix then break?
  I know the difference
  Between your image and who you are
  You're not my angel nor my falling star
  I know you try hard to pretend,
  How strong you want a happy end
  I'm not afraid to tell you so
  The gloomy road, that's what I chose 
  I can't be patient, the fury rose
  A pen in one hand
  A flag in the other
  On sure feet we stand
  To fight all together.

No More Wars


No More Wars

Would you please
leave
my flag, my identity
even in ruins..
Would you try
to let
,for once,
angels fly..
 *   *   *
my message is clear:
no more wars
no more blood
no more killing
nobody's sad
no more loss
no" red cross"
 *  *  *
Is this the ideal ?
you kill people
to get fuel..
isn't a human soul
 a big deal??
 *  *  *
remember we're all human
we can share
share goods like sharing air
this earth is not a property to steal
It's our common spirit which must be real..

War Economy


War Economy


Tears in palestinian eyes
hope and innocence
a tired mother who cries
and men of resistance  
that's what I see..
  *       *        *
I believe what I see
it's in my land your army
how dare you to call me
a terrorist!
Just be truthful and tell me
where weapons come from?
from your factories? or our home?
who made guns for killers 
who turns Romance to Thrillers? 
  *        *         *
You can make a world of blood and tears
you can spy with million ears 
to an innocent child you're a nightmare
a terrible monster who doesn't care
but you can't catch this child dreams
you can't burn this angel wings
you can't break our love rings 
 *        *         *
I have facts do deal with
I know how terrorism does fit
your WAR ECONOMY 
I know you want to steal
Weak's AUTONOMY.
