Compassion is unbreakable and speaks only truth
An iron wall suppressing spiteful phrases
This began since a tiny heart at birth
Advanced bit by bit through phases.

Summon an inner courage to duel indecisions
Battle close adversary head on
Persevere over fury, reprisal, and bitterness
Cut out uncertainty and move on.

Dread, yammer, sob, and then paralyzed
Filing away entire mockeries in clusters
Evade sharp comments that are pint-sized
Welcome graces given on dazzling colors.

  1. So Beautiful Hadel, that you appeared today! As I honestly thought about you this morning and how I hadn’t seen you around which had me wondering, but then I thought only moments before seeing a notice in my email of your visit, how you are too smart and quite sensible and above the chatter of mostly foolish social media; I thought how you must be always using your precious time wisely!!! I swear to God I was thinking this today and just now before knowing of your contact; and then you appeared!!! Man; I so do believe in our God but the mystery never ceases to amaze and give me a jolt here and there like now!!!

    I really hope and pray you are very well and all is as balanced as it can be in your life Hadel!
    God bless you!
