15-year-old Nada Al Dash is celebrating today a valuable heritage embraced by a particularly old building she felt connection with the moment she noticed. All she could see from its cracked walls and weary condition is authenticity and beauty.

Here’s a drawing of that building she would like to share with us! Enjoy!

Young 14-year-old Egyptian Nada Al Dash is back with some of her inspirational short poems. Nada talks about the value of time and says: “this is a warning to never waste time, because every second is a treasure waiting to be opened. You open it by making something of your life. Don’t say I should have done this, I shouldn’t have done that… Just thinking that way will never change a thing; you will become depressed and always mad. Time is not something you put in a safe box and lock, it is rather something you should wisely invest in order to be happy.”

Enjoy!

Time now

 

Time goes by, it is so simple but

It is what you do with it that is hard

You never know whether you were wasting your time

Or simply living,

But sometimes you need to stop and think;

What if today or tomorrow was your last day?

Would you live your life happily ever after?

Would you live it as the happiest time of your life?

That is the question we all need to answer

Now!

Forgiveness and forgetfulness

Love and time

Correctness and life

My motto, live and don’t look back

Loyalty, consistency and engagement are few words that describe Nada Al Dash’s attitude toward this blog. I’d like to share with you tonight a new poem in which Nada reflects on another aspect of her life. Nada’s message in this poem is to “never give up, never lose hope, because whatever you are looking for will come; you just need to wait and never give up… Giving up is something you should never put in your mind, even when you have nothing at all. Giving up and losing hope is not an option, because many people can make something
magnificent out of nothing.”

Enjoy 🙂

A Waiting Call

 Ordered by everyone

Trying to run

Nowhere to hide

Nowhere that wide

A path unclear

A soul full of fear

Not knowing who is
whispering in your ear

Hoping someone,
somewhere is here

Closing your eyes
thinking you’re that wise

When you finally start to rise

Thinking there is no reason for us to hide

When you’re looking at the unclear path

You know there is something to find

Stuck somewhere unknown

Looking at the phone

A ringing sound, a tone

No one, no one at all?

I feel like I fell the deepest fall

Looking at the unclear hall

Wishing someone to call

No, nothing at all

Trapped in a box

Surrounded with rocks

No breath left

A phone next to your left

Waiting for a call

It is funny when you can’t do so at all

When will that call come

Who will it be from

Waiting desperately

Waiting uncomfortably

Thinking no one will call

No one will know that at all

Eyes starting to close

Wishing to see another rose

Going in a deep, deep sleep

Nothing else to keep

Just waiting, waiting, and waiting

HELLO!!!

Young Egyptian Nada Al Dash set another challenge for herself and created this beautiful colorful painting called “My Way”. Nada says this painting expresses her freedom of thought and action.

Enjoy!

“I believe when you set your mind to do something, you can create something incredible.”  This is how Nada Al Dash introduced her beautiful painting!

Nada says, “I never knew how to draw a single animal, not even a bird or a fish. But after gaining faith in myself, I discovered that I can do anything as long as I believe in myself. I never had the biggest faith in myself, but now I am a new person, I am proud of myself for accomplishing something. I am happy to give it as a present for my older sister, for her new home after her marriage(…)
I am proud of what I’ve accomplished because this is not just a painting with a cute cat, this is my hope, faith, love, and accomplishment, and I am happy that I have gained faith in myself again.”

We’re proud of you too, Nada! Keep it up!

 

Young Egyptian Nada Al Dash, who always has a lot of interesting talents and experiences to share, is sharing with us today some of her best memories; her “La La Memories.” She says: “La La memories are imaginary memories; things that I thought they would never happen, but I have lived them and I would like to share them with all of you.”

 

 

 

La La memories

 La la memories we had

Some were good, some were bad

But in this picture we had so much fun

It was such a beautiful day especially with the bright sun

Usually mama doesn’t laugh in pictures like this,

But in this one you wouldn’t imagine the things my father did

Oh, too many la la memories we had

And the outdoors were not so bad

In this picture

You can see the glance
of my sister’s smile

The goofiness of my brother’s arrival

Too many good times

Too many great shines

You wouldn’t imagine how many laughs we had

Of course they were all good not bad

We played, danced, and sang

Sounds were loud, too many phones that rang

Wow! Too many laughs we had

In the park with the beautiful, and colorful flowers

My baby cousins thinking they have powers

Standing behind a huge tower

It was an amazing park indeed

I love my family and friends, I do

And I’ll cherish theses la la memories forever too

We laughed so hard

Many people thought we were funk

Many people thought we were drunk

Many people thought we were crazy

Many people thought we were Just lazy

I love these la la memories

Soon there will be more la la memories to remember

But right now I will cherish this one forever.

After sharing with us her poetic talent, Nada Al Dash is sharing today he passion for drawing and painting. This is how Nada interprets her work:

“This is called Love, War, and Peace. It is about the fact that love and war can’t get along except with peace. If there is peace in life, love and war will be the best of friends; they can’t be combined without peace. Love is red, war is blue, the flowers are peace (yellow), and the white line is the separation. This is my image of love with war, and war with love, and peace with love and war. Hope u like it!”
