The Lost Key

We are all in a maze

It was a lost key.

That no one seemed to realize that they needed for all those unanswered questions.

The lost belief and faith

They lost it, and now they’re finding another one to replace it.

I am still finding the key; it’s the key that would bring all humankind together.

The key is our creator. We need to find him to open all our doors.

We need to realize that in the midst of everything, we have forgotten to find the lost key. We have forgotten that there is Allah, who is the answer to all our questions.

In the middle of our everyday lives, we have forgotten the beginning of that valuable breath. We are all in a maze, and we are all following one way; the way that everyone is going, because we are afraid of being left alone. Without realizing that we are not exactly alone. We just need to follow our hearts and find the lost key inside the maze, the key that unlocks all door.

We feel lost because we are lost. From the most valuable and priceless thing. And we only need to realize that we have lost it so that we can start searching for it with all our might.

He is our only hope. There is no other way.

I Write…

For my sanity

I write when I am happy

I write when I am sad. 

I write when I feel like crying and I know that there would be no one who would really listen and understand the echoes in my head. 

I write to calm down my <!–more–>mind’s vivid imagination; if I wouldn’t write, I wouldn’t have been able to sleep at night. 

And mostly, I write for my sanity. 

My writings are my therapy. They are the reason I can stay calm when everything around me is crashing and nothing is going too well. It helps me understand myself better and all the jumbled thoughts that are running around in my head – it helps create an order.

I question every thought in my brain, and I need to write to find answers. 

The shoulder to lean on that everyone talks about ? -That’s my writings for me. 

At the end of day, when nothing is going well and words cannot come out of my mouth, I know that I can always go back and just write. In order to share, explian all of the things that I believe in; with the people who would actually love to listen. And when days come by where words escape me from my mind and heart, I read and listen to others hearts. 

Writing and reading are just beautiful. They show you, that impacts can be made with silence too. 

When I write, I use my mind and my heart, they work together in such unison to create a perfect balance. It’s a complete definition of pouring one’s heart out. 

I just love writing. 

It’s beautiful how when one reads something, they interpret it in the situation they are in at that moment; in their own perspective. When you read someones writing, you are forced to listen, concentrate and understand. And it touches you, deep in your heart, because you feel exactly the emotions that one was going through. 

I know that when I read what I write now, ten years later; I will read everything from a very different perspective. It will be a different feeling, listening to the emotions that ‘were’- creating a sense of nostalgia, for the person I was.  Because writing is timeless. 

You could say I write for selfish reasons. I do it for myself completely. 

Why I Write 

You don’t write beacaue you want to say something, you write because you have something to say 

-F.Scott Fitzgerald


Miss Nasra

Uumm…..I know why I write but having to explain would require me to write a really long essay which we all don’t want, so I will try to make this as interesting as <!–more–>possible by giving three reasons why I do so.

REASON 1: Nasra believes she writes to express her many feelings which she can’t express to people around her because of culture barriers, close mindedness and lack of patience to withstand her curiosity that questions a looott.

REASON 2: She writes to let her weirdness out! No one has to know how far her crazy mind can go so or else she would have no friends! So better write all my imaginations and weird opinions down before my social circle breaks from being weirded out by me.

REASON 3: it’s pleasurable to me knowing I have not given up and have managed to put up my work into our wonderful site with my awesome friends through all our differences. Honestly it gives me positive vibes because it doesn’t let me down ever! 

I mean it makes me feel happy because they say anybody can dance or anybody can cook but we don’t hear people saying that anybody can write very often! And I fit in there, so hooray

Writing is a good form of expressing one’s thoughts; it is also a good way of creating new ones in the process. Others like me enjoy writing about anything though mostly myself when I am at the peak of my emotions. It usually calms me down, sets my mind in a space whereby instead of thinking about the latter I instead focus on what is in front of me — the topic I am writing on. I would say that while in my toddlerhood? Teens? I used to dislike composing anything, especially in class. I’m more of a reader; nonetheless composing nowadays comes much more easily to me than then when I had to use similes to impress my teacher.

Miskellaneous

Introversion, if I were to try sum it all into one, that would be the reason why I write. Being an introvert I can sometimes find it really hard to properly convey what I want to say in conversations, to gather the courage and confidence, form a proper sentence and affluently deliver it yet I can assure you all my deliveries sound way better in my head. With writing I don’t have to worry about all that, I can take my time to construct proper sentences, and say what needs to be said without having people’s eyes on me. You get to speak out in the comforts of your little introvert bubble.

 Apart from the comfortability writing provides it also allows freedom of expression, there are certain topics that are generally easier to convey in words then in speech. I sometimes feel I can be a 100 percent of myself in writing than I can in speech, with writing I don’t filter or edit what I say. I don’t worry about what others might think of me or my opinions, or if I come off as a little weird. There are very few people one can really be themselves with so it definitely helps to be able to turn to writing to showcase your whole personality. 

Lastly writing has provided me with a means of challenging myself creatively, pushing my imagination to its limits pursuing other forms of writing (not just the work I do here), tapping into places in my mind that have remained untouched. A remedy for my introversion, expression and imagination; why this little individual picks up that pen and paper every day. 

These are our reasons, what are yours ?
