On Enmity and Friendship – Poem

Tunis Down! Down! my Enemy And read not my pity and sorrow, Lest, perhaps, you wake up And become my Friend tomorrow. look! Will it be of profit for you My Enemy not to be my Friend And help me not to help you And act on when shaking my hand? Yesterday went on and today Has gone wailing to end itself soon. My people are down to earth But I weep and look at the moon That has always conferred warm light On th ...

A Dream – Poem

Rabat Once upon a time When words were still words And smiles were real And not plastic I read on your lips A poem about love and life. Your eyes in their fascinating beauty, I remember, Broke superbly my ice And the ices imprisoning my person And shattered my deadly silence And all the silences Of people like me **** You came to me in a dream, Out of the wilderness, Beautifully wrapped In a shroud of flowe ...

Kathy’s Tulips – Poem

Rabat We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. Plato (427-347) The watchful gods, The revengeful gods, You and me And the interminable suffering. The tulips, Kathy’s tulips.  **** Iranian music fills the room, The Santur stands out Supreme and majestically. It brings out With its sad notes The beauty Of the tulips, Kathy’s tulips. ...

Holy Oath – Poem

Tunis - Soumaya Ghaddhab My noble knight and I Were born upon a barren land Bathed under the weeping sky Holding hands, each with a suffocating cry Then, I didn't know when his eye Is going to reflect I. For him I gazed through the mist With a quivering heart inside my chest And a forbidden keepsake in my waist. When he' departed I locked the gates of my pure heart And handed its keys to Aphrodite. Here I a ...

Despair I am – Poem

By Majdi Bouguerra - Sbeitla, Tunisia Alone in my room. Engulfed in a cloud of gloom. Regret is ever my doom. Is that life until the tomb?  **** Those who loved us we jilt. Those whom we love us reject. Elusive bliss is but a flash In a  life of heart crash.  **** Was I truly myself? Had I run out of feeling When I saw those tears rolling? No sorry had I felt For that blood unduly spelt. For that callousnes ...

Who are you…?

By ibtissam Ait Rouga Doubts within certainty The grave of the infinity The child of infertility The hallucinations of sanity  **** Who are you? A mad star at night Trying with all her might To jettison the gown of light The sword of right Going out of sight To the unknown leaving the fight  **** Why you? The destroyer and the savior The current and the anchor The slave and the master The bless of peace wit ...

A Response to Racism

Boumalne Dades, Morocco Yeah that whole group, they were born that way. Arrogant, dangerous, and dirty, I think that’s what the world is trying to say. WHAT? Wait up hold on just for a minute. Are we really still that ignorant? You tell me they were born that way. *** Are you really that blind or are you simply that lazy, believing everything you hear? Did you ever consider that is like holding up a spear? ...

The Spring’s whine – Poem

Casablanca Here is the spring, looking beyond the pale, Unhealthy, like a sick, depressed and very frail; Faintly screaming in a galled, elderly-like sound: My lively offsprings everywhere used to bound, As I was once a fertile, generous flow of hope; My colours covered every plain, hill and slope. I was the realm of joy, of fancy and sweat dreams, The occult of beauty, of inspiration that streams; Ask my a ...

The Stranger’s Traveling – Poem

By Abdoulkarim Nati - Milan Everything to money comes down But to God before and after is all weighed up Count what you have in your pocket It is all you are measured with. Neither Goodness nor Reasoning matches it. Neither principles nor puzzles have it As a child; silly or a youth; too ambitious No convictions are invoked You are only wanted to stay handcuffed Only used and abused And relegated you expire ...

Give me back my youth – Poem

Casablanca Oh, time, you’re running fast with my age in hand, Leaving me no chance to think over then to stand By the change in our life, that of a new brand; No way to enjoy the womanly fulfillment in our land! *****     Hang on, go back to my youth  ***** To see that the little tress-haired girls, now so old, Who dared not swing with boys or perch on a tree, Walking shyly at the back of the flock, are now ...

Please, Forgive Me! – Poem

Marrakech If I feel this way and I was the one to leave you How do you feel after everything I did to you? If I still think that it was the right thing to do Why do I miss you and wonder if you, too, do? Why do I still fancy us laughing and holding hands And traveling together to foreign lands I never loved anyone the way I loved you And I know I was the one and only for you But love wasn’t enough and I nee ...
