Lifenotes

A ladies’ gym in a small town in Saudi Arabia. A gym is called a gym now but back in the days, say about 5 years ago, they were known as “Beauty clinics”. Women openly going to the gym and working out were not somethings considered important back then. Five years down, this small city I live in and call home is full of fitness centers and some of them are even franchised. Everything is changing, and most importantly now, a woman doesn’t need the society to tell her how she needs to do things or simply life her life. -Al Hasa, KSA

Poems

The Discovery!

The best discovery I have had
at a time I never thought I would
It was either a
Corona’s curse or blessing!

I discovered you – slowly I uncovered all of the masks that were
Over you as layers of lies and untruths.

That saddened me, but it made me free from you.
In the end.

Poems

Wronged!

not all is born with love in their destiny
a love that sometimes you feel entitled to belong to someone else
why?
“am I not worthy enough?”
you realize he never loved anyone else except himself all his life.

it was always about him.
there was no you, anywhere!
