Smile, Though Your Heart Is Aching :)

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You'll get by

There's this weird smile on my face... my tired face... that woke up at 9am today to the ringing phone -__-

It was my brother in Misurata. He had told me yesterday that he'd be going to a cyber café, saying that it would be early in the morning. The warning didn't help, but I got up anyway and scrambled to turn on the PC.

As always, it was great to see him. Yes, he's lost a lot of weight in comparison to the last time I saw on webcam (back in April) but it's nice that he's smiling. There was a man next to him speaking loudly with someone on the internet, giving him a number... we couldn't help but laugh. The number was long, and I told my brother that maybe it was a code or something... his eyes teared with laughter ^_^ cute!

Ah, well. He said he was bored like Hell... there's definitely no sign of schools reopening anytime soon, and I'm really worried about how this will turn out. I know the important thing is that everyone is safe and sound, but it kinda makes you upset that thousands of students are kept on hold just because of that evil G-Jerk.

My brother told me about our neighbor's son who had been in Benghazi at the beginning of the uprising, and when he came back to Misurata and saw his peers, he teased, "Man, are you guys on drugs?"

-___- heehee ... yeah, because, just like my bro, many of them lost weight.

What's interesting is that my bro had grown an afro during the first couple of months of the revolution, and now it's all gone as he shaved it all. So, from being Abu Shafshufa بوشفشوفة he's now Muzeel Elbatsha مزيل البطشة


Good to look at things in a light manner, don't you think? This crisis has taken its toll on all Libyans... yet it has provided us with loads of comical material! ^___^

So, just smile... Libya will be okay

Till next time,

  1. It is always pleasure reading your post . SOOooo nice !!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Love your blog.

    Just watchout that Islam does not destroy freedom and democracy that we are soon to attain.

    The real fight for free speech and democracy starts the day Qadafi is killed or escapes.
