A thank you to God

Thank you Allah
For life
When millions die
in Palestine

Thank you Allah
For water
When thirst kills thousands
in Djibouti

Thank you Allah
For food
When hunger consumes children
in Somalia

Thank you Allah
For shelter
When many are homeless
in Syria

Thank you Allah
For a family
When some may never see theirs
in Egypt

Thank you Allah
For freedom
When innocence is sold
in China

Lastly, thank you Allah
For every small blessing
Because somewhere, someone
may not be lucky enough for them.

World as we know it –

Walking through the halls of high schools is quite similar to walking through a battle field… you are never quite sure what you will find lying around the bend… everyone seems to be thinner, taller, blonder, prettier, and tanner than you… they all seem to be having the time of their lives despite the educational setting… they all seem to have the most friends and the most people to say hello to walking through the halls. Well, life isn’t what it seems. Most of those people just surround themselves with others because they are too deathly scared to be alone. They are so scared that they aren’t really friends, they just pretend… because without those people they would be nothing. They hurt just like you do. They notice the imperfections in their own faces as well even though your eyes cannot see them. They notice how the girl next to them is taller and thinner… even though you don’t. Maybe sometimes it’s what you don’t see that makes you more alike than you’ll ever know.

Have you ever felt like this? Have you ever known some, Taller, thinner, prettier girl, just to realize that she has the same insecurities as you do. We all are alike in many ways that we don’t know yet and it’s cause we all have a sense of vulnerability, we all have hopes and dreams, but we also have fears and things that we hurt us. This quote reminded me of a song I had learned in Year 5 and this is how it goes:

It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears,

It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears

There’s so much that we share,
It is time we’re aware.
It’s a small small world.

It’s a small world after all,
It’s a small world after all,
There’s so much that we share,
It is time we’re aware.
It’s a small small world.

There is just one moon and a golden sun,
And a smile means friendship to everyone,
Though the mountains divide,
And the oceans are wide,
It’s a small small world.

It’s a small world after all,
It’s a small world after all,
There’s so much that we share,
It is time we’re aware.
It’s a small small world.
