991 – Hashem Al-Ghaili on Doing the Same Thing Twice

“No matter how hard you try, you can never do or say the same thing at the same place twice. You are on a planet orbiting it’s star with a speed of 30 km/s. This star travels around the Milky Way Galaxy with a speed of 220 km/s. This galaxy is traveling across the expanding universe with a speed of 600 km/s. By the time you finish reading this paragraph. you would have already moved over 3000 km into a new location in the universe. You can’t go back to the previous location, it’s just gone. I think it would be a waste of space to do a bad deed and leave a black spot in the universe, a spot that can never be filled again with a good deed. Now that you know you can’t do it twice, just think twice.”

-Hashem Al-Ghaili


617 – “I have this bad habit of” a Poem

I have this bad habit of
getting close to people
and thinking that they’re
always going to be by my side;
but eventually they always leave.

I have this bad habit of
loving people a little too much,
when they don’t even love me back;
and when they leave me my heart
feels like someone threw it from the sky.

I have this bad habit of
caring for people,
when they don’t even care about me
at all. Perhaps, if they saw
through my eyes they’ll see
the scars I have deep down inside.

I’m tired. I’m tired. I’m tired.
I wish feelings didn’t exist.
Why do feelings exist anyways?
I always fall for everything and
let it destroy me. It’s my fault after all,
but I still have hope that one day
I find a person that shares
the same bad habits as me.
