Those Eyes

Standard

Your eyes cast a spell on me

They are magnetic, electric and addictive

Sending me waves of pure unconditional love

You look at me like I’m something precious, unordinary and special

Your eyes reminds me that I have something to live for

Someone to fight for, someone to love

You make me feel like I can conquer the world

And nothing can get in my way

My Sweet Escape

Standard

A friend: Why do you love him so much, Nadine?

Me: Because he’s my sweet escape.

A friend: From?

Me: Everything. Whenever he hold my hand, my worries will cease to exist and happiness will consume me and I began to embrace love, imagination, innocence, absurdity and craziness. I am Peter Pan and he is my Neverland.

Fuck The International Women’s day

Standard

Yesterday, we celebrated the international women’s day, alas I wished the whole believed in the meaning of this day.

Can you tell me why crimes against women are brushed aside in the media? Why nothing more is done to protect women from abusive spouses? Why there are so few shelters for homeless women and women fleeing situations like this? Why violence against women is considered a lesser crime?  Why women’ rape is a misdemeanor, victim-shaming, and victim-blaming? Why when a woman speak up and raise her voice is called a whore?

Don’t you know, in some countries and cultures, raped women are forced to marry their assaulter or how many women are beaten or even murdered by their husbands on their first night because they weren’t virgin?  Do you know that walking by myself at night is never safe?  Do you know I spend hours thinking of what would be “safe” to wear?

And what about these whistles every time we are walking on the street?! What’s the purpose of these whistles? We are not some kind of pets who’s willing to go running after some guys with high hormones, but I guess when the wolf goes for a stroll, all the dogs start barking.

So yeah, fuck the international women’s day, I don’t find a reason to celebrate this day. Women are not second class citizens. We are not breeding tools for your war machine, or vessels for your property. We are people, and deserve the same rights as everyone else. I am a woman, therefore I am a goddess, a warrior, a fighter, a lioness.

Live your life

Standard

A friend: where we will go, after we die?

Me: Why do you care?

A friend: What if I died tomorrow, will I go to heaven?

Me: Look up!! Just see how the sky is turning blue losing its drabness and monotony.

A friend: what does this even mean?

Me: It means you’re not dead so stop acting like one! Just like the sky, you are a beauty and a bringer of happiness and smiles. You were placed here to live not to just exist. So don’t be afraid to take the extra mile and stop assuming for the worst.
