As a kid I heard a poetry line for the great Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, the meaning of that line is that we only love life when we have no way to reach it, and it has always made me wonder, for it didn’t make some sense to me, I mean why would we love life if we can’t reach it? How could one enjoy life from the outside?
But now that I’m older I can understand the beauty of the outside, I can see how the forbidden life is much brighter that the one that is neglected in our hands, the greatest pleasure in life is having what we can’t get, for once we do, it would not be as pleasant as we thought.
And that’s why dreams have to be unrealistic, our desires should not be fulfilled, because the moment we reach that level, we don’t desire that desire anymore, so what I fear the most is the realizing for my dream and not otherwise, for I’m scared to lose the passion that my soul feeds on, I’m scared to lose the possibility that makes me believe in a beautiful tomorrow.
The dreams we have always inspire and guide our spirits, and here’s a true example from the real life, the Egyptian poet Ahmad Rami was crazy about the amazing Egyptian singer Um Kolthum, he used to write poems for her and she sang them, and she loved him as well, but when he asked her to marry him she refused, because if they got married, and Ahmad Rami’s dream was realized, how would he be inspired to write more poems for her!
But here I am, in the beginning of my journey, fighting hard for the dreams I have, I pray deeply to god to be blessed to get the best of what this journey is willing to offer.
