Nostalgic: Back To School

Welcome to the 4th episode of my Nostalgic series (Nostalgic, Nostalgic: Up On The Roof & Nostalgic: Saving Nickels, Saving Dimes) where I talk about my childhood memories that are by far more interesting that my current life :P

I still remember my1st day at school. I mean not fully since I don't even remember how I got in there initially. I assume that I went with my older cousins since I know my father was working that day. I don't know how the system works in schools now but during my time all students gather in the space where the students do their morning queues and sing the national anthem and do some morning exercises. So we were all gathered there and some teacher or the vice rector dude got in the microphone and started calling classes names and the students that should go to that class. So he started calling names and the students whose names were called get together in the side and then taken by their teacher to their class. He then called a class name and suddenly I heard my name. I was standing like a status I think I didn't move from my place and I didn’t go with my colleagues and until now I have no idea what was in my mind that day. After all the names have been called and I was there looking around me wondering what to do, I made a choice and walked toward the school gate and left to home :D When I arrived home, my mom was shocked to see me and she asked me what are you doing here? I think I cried though I don't really remember and I am not sure how I went to school the next day or how I found my way to my class! Don’t blame me, all this happened around 23 years ago :P
Anyway, in the class I was wondering and looking around me looking for some friendly faces but all I saw was some old boys who are scary and I was like what are they doing here with 1st graders? Thank god the next day they were all gone. I think they found that these students are un-teachable and it will be a waste of time and effort to try to teach them. Once we were all settled in that big classroom, the teacher distributed some biscuits and milk (or juice) to us and we were all happy and thinking oh nice we will get this every day :D which of course was not the case. We haven't seen these biscuits again :(
This classroom was big and was holding like 40 students so they decided to split us and so we moves to a smaller classroom with 22 students. I think I can remember the names of most of them. I haven't seen any of them in long time but all I know that not many of them did well in his life. I mean 1 of them who was sitting in the front raw ended up being a well known drug dealer in the area and he is now in jail and I hope he won't ever get out! There is also this kid with 1 leg. The poor lad father was driving the car and reversing and he didn't see his son there so he hit him and caused his leg to be amputated. But he had the spirit that time and he used to play football with us using his artificial leg and sometimes when he gets so excited his artificial leg flies with the ball :D I wish I can know what happened to him and what is he doing these days.

Well enough said about my 1st year in school. I will return sometimes later and write a new post about the following years so make sure you don't miss anything ;)

A Conversation

Here is a poem that I wrote most part of it loooooooooong time ago as a reply to a poem posted by a blogger who disappeared. I never posted it, but few days ago I was reading in my old documents and I found it and I thought it worth posting here. I added few lines here and there.
It is way different from the style I am used to write. So I would like to read yout opinions :D

A Conversation

Maybe you change your mood
With every change in the season
Maybe my mood changes
Without a reason
Maybe these walls divide us,
But these endless walls were
Built to protect us
And this silence came after
We have exhausted all the words
And we don't have much to discuss

But I can see you clearly
I see you between the lines in the poems you write
We do not have speak
Let our eyes converse in silence
Let them reach a solution

You should see it in my eyes
Read between my words
With your heart, you ought to feel my touch
Every sigh I take is yours
I inhale you in with every breath I take
You live within me
And forever you will be

Malcolm in the Middle

I think one of the best Ramadhan shows this year is Malcolm in the Middle on MBC4 :P Even though I am not sure what season is it but I still watch it! Actually I even finished watching the 7th and latest season of that show! Very hilarious indeed! My favorite character is Dewey and I think he is the smartest and funniest one in the whole family! He reminds me of one of my nephews.

By the way, for those who does not know, the actor who plays Reese is actually younger than the actor who plays Malcolm! And they don't even have a family name!

I have been tagged by 3anooda. I use some programs to make it look like that, otherwise the normal look is messy and has too many icons!

As usual, I don't tag anyone :D

Let Us Go Back

Alright ladies and gentlmen, I didn't take long time between my last post and this! So hopefully, this will be the trend so wish me luck :D

Here is my new poem and I think it is clear that I miss my childhood though now after growing up I realized that it was boring; and beside that I don't wanna go back to school again :P

So enjoyyyyyyyy ..

Let Us Go Back

Let us go back in time and be little kids again
And forget all the worries and all the pain
Let s go back to the time when we were innocent
The time before the roses lost its beautiful scent
And the time when we used to play out in the rain

Let us go back in time few years ago
Too young, we were with so much to know
About life, death and all what is there
About love, hate, hope and despair
Let us go back in time to when we first met
Let us live again all those moments I remember to forget

At Sunset

Happy month of Ramadhan to you all and I know I became rare but all precious things are rare and I think I am precious :P

Here is my lastest poem which I was able to finish! :D

I hope you like it..

At Sunset

At sunset, the ocean swallows the sun
And the sky turns to dark
It is the birth of a new life
And new memories to mark

At sunset, lovers enjoy walking by
Side by side, holding hands
And all the birds fly to their homes
Grouped together like marching bands

At sunset, all I alone I watch the sky
Thinking about that special someone
Who can share this moment with me
And at sunset, she will be my sun
