Afghanistan #3

Afghanistan at night

Yes! Another collection of pictures taken by my cousin Laila that lives in Afghanistan. Let me tell you more about this beautiful cousin that I have.

First thing is that she always reads my blog. Mysteriously I always would get 1 view from Afghanistan, and it ends up being her! She is smart yet will never bother showing that to you. Indeed which makes her lazy! You should see sometimes how I force her to come with me to the gym or sauna sometimes, it is like I am taking her to get slaughtered! But sadly she comes here to Dubai just in holidays, so I don’t really make her suffer that much. Which I wish I could do a little bit more often!

Laila is also a lot into arts. Compared to me, I find her way better. But I know she won’t agree about that. Even though she is better than me in art, it seems she never has time for it, which I really wish she did, because I love her art! She has a passion to photography and she loves books. Having to share another hobby, we often end up buying the same book in the bookstore! So what we do is we buy 4, each takes 2, we read and we swap! But that doesn’t really happen much, since she lives in another country.

Summer vacation is just nearby, and wishing that she would come here to Dubai, I just want to tell you readers that you should really cherish every single person in your family. You never know how the future will catch them with their hands and fly away, far away from you. So spend more time with your family rather than trying to make friends. Because trust me, those friends will never stay by your side. It is is a very rare thing to find someone who would stand by your side for nor reason but only because they want to. Love, live, eat, and cherish. But please don’t forget to exercise, and Laila, that goes to you too lady!

” When a friendship called”

There was a girl once called Nina
Who was a pretty little girl
Nina got friends with Laila
And that was when a friendship called.

They were friends for long
And long enough to be close
Grew  together happily
Having a lot in common.

Playing dolls together,
Having food together,
Going out together,
Studying together.

This was how our two little angels were,
This was how we always saw them.

But life will always surprise you
By giving you a scoop of something
That you might not expect.
Or you might just not want.

Nina started going out alone
Nina started having new friends,
But Laila didn’t like those friends.
And Laila wasn’t asked to come along.

Nina was giggling now with others
Nina started eating with others.
Poor Laila, left alone
In a corner with unknown.

Nina stopped talking to Laila
She left her all alone
To live this life by her self.
For a reason  that was unknown.

One day Laila cried
Two days Laila cried
Three, and four and five
Six and seven and eight…

But one day Laila stopped.
She went out to find Nina and her friends,
And there was Nina with her friends
And there she was smiling with them

Laila thought to her self how come
Why did life treat Laila like that
Why did Nina left her like that
If only she knew the answer

But Laila just looked at Nina
From far away and and kept quite
Silently looking at her best friend
Who left Laila isolated
In this bitter world.

Laila thought to herself
How it hurts when someone
Someone very special

Who you loved the most
Throws you away from their world
Throws you far away from world

Where to look or who to ask
What to do, no one ever knows.

Laila will always from that day
Try her best to not let go
Of someone who you might be special to
Of someone who makes you feel special.

She will go out and make new friends
She will dress up and smile like Nina
But always will she remember that
No one deserves to be left alone.
