Up Close & Personal: The circle of life...


"History despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not to be lived again" - Maya Angelou

So many things on my mind, so many things in my head.
History as we know it seems to keep repeating itself
The present never seems to learn from the past.
is that what they called the circle of life?

One can no longer tell the rights from the wrongs
But one has to wonder - what happened to our humanity?
that same air we breathe through our lungs
That same feeling of pain in our chest,
that same red colour of blood on our hands,
that same bitter taste of tears in our throats?

When do we leave our differences behind to focus on what unites us ahead?

We might have different dreams, but we are all dreaming.
We might have different hopes but we are all hoping for the better
We might have different lives, but we are all breathing
We might have different faiths, but we all face the same fate...

We might look different but past our "looks" we are all one and the same.
We are all humans. Unequal at birth yet equal in the face of death.

Hope is all I have...
Love is all I need...

till next time


PS: Eid Mubarak!
