#GameofThrones Season 6 #music

I’m becoming one of these people obsessing over Game of Thrones. I tried to resist so much, but failed by the end.

Been listening to the latest soundtrack for a while now. So, I thought of sharing 😉

23 June – #Breathe

One might feel it’s an exaggeration, but for me I mean every word when I say that art can save lives. A song, a movie, a painting , a dance, an expression can help you survive the most excruciating experiences.

I remember now in mind the beautiful movie “The Pianist” based on the real story of  Władysław Szpilman.

“Humanity seems doomed to do more evil than good. The greatest ideal on earth is human love.”
Wilm Hosenfeld, The Pianist: The Extraordinary Story of One Man’s Survival in Warsaw, 1939–45

One of the movies that made me envy artists. Artists can beautifully express themselves. They have a very powerful weapon to fight with. I always admire artists and wish I could be one of them. May be it’s time? Who knows! 🙂

The thing about art that directly touches your soul, is that it’s sincere and authentic. You feel connected to the artist. You feel relevance.

I’m Only Human.

Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
‘Cause I’m only human

Salma Asks - سلمى تسأل

I can hold my breath
I can bite my tongue
I can stay away for days
If that’s what you want
Be your number one

I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that’s what you ask
Give you all I am

I can do it

But I’m only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I’m only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
‘Cause I’m only human

I can turn it on
Be a good machine
I can hold the weight of worlds
If that’s what you need
Be your everything

I can do it

I’ll get through it

I can take so much
‘Til I’ve had enough

“#Truce”

There are two objectives behind this blog post:

1- to write a +400 words piece of self-expression (haven’t done that in a while).

2- to give you a hint of what anxiety feels like (from an unprofessional point of view).

15 June – Light

So in recent interviews, people ask me about my blog (since I used to be a blogger and my current career revolves around content). And surprisingly I find myself awkwardly shying away from sharing it.

Ironically, I used to excessively share my blog posts in my old blog everywhere. I took pride to be documenting my reflections throughout every part of the revolution and what I believed in. But now I only write to try & get out these loud voices in my head. Whether I’m proud or not of these thoughts, I just want them to shut up.

And now I’m wondering, when did I start to care about how ppl perceive me so much? And why does growing up let you be ashamed of your own vulnerability? Trying to hide it away?

 

There is indeed no hiding from facing your own voices. There should be no shame to admit that you’re vulnerable, and to be honest.

Do you think I should make this blog private? I kinda still am fascinated by the idea that someone out there is reading my thoughts. May be someone will relate. May be another one needs to feel that they are not alone. I still have a tiny ray of hope that small words can make a big difference.

But what about my blog? Do you think I should make another one for professional use?

Waiting to hear your thoughts.. 🙂

 

14 June – #Dark

I realize now how absurd it must have become that I keep quoting song names and lyrics in each blog post. I think it’s my attempt to try & express my ideas.

I started liking the idea of creating an alter ego that represents one side of your personality. I’m gonna have to create one but I’m yet to find their name.

So far, I have compiled  a list  of artists who are singing to the dark twisty alter ego of mine:
