A Struggle and Happy New Year 2013

So it is almost upon us, I’ve taken the liberty to post this a bit later than I would normally, to wish you and your family a good start into the year of 2013, may God bless us and make this a fruitful year.

That said, let’s go on to the first post according to schedule, let’s let this year pass in revue, it was a busy year.

Sunken ships and blame games early this year, the biggest bail-out for Greece, the Queens Jubilee, the Arab spring and various coup d’etat, the phone hacking scandal and its consequences, a shoot-out in France, the Olympics and Paralympics, Gun-men and hate-crimes, Burmese clashes, the war in Gaza, among other things. Yes, this Year has been filled with quite a lot, if I might say so.

 

A struggle.

 

Life’s a struggle, hold tight.

3rd most searched term on Google, category Man … kind

was Amanda Todd’s suicide, hold tight.

Rohingya’s crying,

Syria’s bleeding,

Gaza’s still tearing up,

my Heart on the verge of dying, hold tight.

 

Worst thing is, I miss the ability to cry

while I might share in the pain of theirs

It has happened so often and my heart is hard, my eyes dry

But I want to do something, anything that’ll help, show that I, that someone cares.

Hold tight.

 

I feel so useless, with this world in such a mess,

but maybe if I start with a change in me and address my failures

Then work on mine and the environment,

there might be a chance for contentment,

for everyone.

So hold tight let’s fight together forever united, connected and bonded in this plight.

InshaAllah we can change Mankind for the better, hold tight to God’s rope and never lose hope.
