A dialogue between a flower and a pearl

One day, a brilliantly beautiful and fragrant flower with attractive colors met a pearl that lives far in the bottom of the sea and has none of these characteristics. Both got acquainted with each other. The flower said: our family is large; roses and flowers are members of the family. And there are many other species that are various and countless. Each has a distinctive scent, appearance …etc.

Suddenly, a tinge of distress appeared on the flower. Nothing accounts for sorrow in your talk; so why are depressed? The pearl asked. Human beings deal with us carelessly; they slight us. They don't grow us for our sake but to get pleasure from our fragrance and beautiful appearance. They throw us on the street or in the garbage can after we are dispossessed of the most valuable properties; brilliance and fragrance.

The flower sighed and then said to the pearl: speak to me about your life! How do you live? How do you feel it? You are buried in the bottom of the sea.

The pearl answered: Although I have none of your distinctive colors and sweet scents, humans think I am precious. They do the impossible to procure me. They go on long journeys, dive deep in the seas searching for me.You might be astounded to know that the further I lay, the more beautiful and brilliant I become. That's what upraises my value in their thought. I live in a thick shell isolated in the dark seas. However, I'm happy and proud to be in a safe zone far from wanton and mischievous hands and still the humans consider me highly valuable.

Do you know what the flower and the pearl symbolize? You will find that.. .. ..

The flower is the unveiled woman (who shows her charms) and the pearl is the veiled woman
(who conceals her beauties)

One of my fav song lyrics


Billy Joel

If you search for tenderness
It isnt hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
But if you look for truthfulness
You might just as well be blind
It always seems to be so hard to give
Honesty is such a lonely word
Everyone is so untrue
Honesty is hardly ever heard
And mostly what I need from you

I can always find someone
To say they sympathize
If I wear my heart out on my sleeve
But I dont want some pretty faces
To tell me pretty lies
All I want is someone to believe

I can find a lover
I can find a friend
I can have security
Until the bitter end
Anyone can comfort me
With promises again
I know, I know
When Im deep inside of me
Dont be too concerned
I wont ask for nothin while Im gone
But when I want sincerity
Tell me where else can I turn
Because youre the one that I depend upon

It was last night when I decided to burn the midnight oil to be ready enough for today’s exam. I made myself a big cup of coffee and told myself that it’s about time to concentrate more on my studies.

After drinking my coffee at about 12:00am my family went to sleep telling me “good night darling” and then I found myself alone in a cold gloomy night ; everyone was sleeping covering with heavy blankets…after 1 hour I found myself studying on a melody of my beloved family snort.

Yeah I couldn’t bear that anymore yet I made a promise not to go to bed… so what?
After 3 hours (or maybe less) I was like the one in the picture above :)

Hey..What’s going on your mind? Do u think I didn’t do well in the exam? Well.. NOO dear.. Thank god, it was easy and I did well.

Me & Me

Thoughts from a broken unwavering heart ,who dead set to heal the wounds and climb the mountains despite the shaky rocks whatever it takes and not to let anyone or anything discourage her from her quest.

It was that day when she fell down from a high hill , get shocked as the one who used to call " the best friend" didn't give her a hand to help her stand up again, didn't even seem to be sad for her fall. This fake friend not only didn't help the fallen friend to stand up but also she pushed her over and over again each time the fallen deceived, fooled friend tried to stand up so that she couldn't stand up tall anymore. Then the fake friend left her alone and gone.

The wounded soul, the broken heart determined not to lose the battle whether being lonely or not , Whether being shot by a friend's gun who hided her true identity under her devotion mask Or not.

O,let's try me & me together
Not to lose that battle
We shared the same aim
We swore not to faint
O, me what had happened?
Let’s try me & me together
In times of crisis not to wear down
Don’t ever think what lies around
Or even that you’re simply ground
O, me let’s me & me stick together united till the end
I’ve no doubt that you…who is me Will always be my loyal best friend
I know you won’t let me alone
Until i become consisting of some bones
Oh, me remember that to be or not to be is the question.
