You Start Dying Slowly

“You Start Dying Slowly”

You Start Dying Slowly
If you don’t travel
If You don’t read
If you don’t listen to the sounds of life
If you don’t appreciate yourself
You Start Dying Slowly

When you kill your self-esteem
When you don’t let others help you
You Start Dying Slowly

If you became a slave of your habits
Walking everyday on the same paths
If you don’t change your routine
If you don’t wear different colors
Or you don’t speak to those you don’t know
You Start Dying Slowly

If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast
You Start Dying Slowly

If you don’t risk what is safe for the uncertain
If you don’t go after a dream
If you don’t allow yourself
At least once in your lifetime to run away
You Start Dying Slowly

(Love your life, Love yourself)

Pablo Neruda, Spanish Poet

Raise the voice for these people and for many like them.



It is so easy to become immune to what is happening in Syria. But as this picture shows, these once towns were communities, where kids played and neighbors bustled and chatted as they went about their days. The media and the governments dehumanize all of this through xenophobic  posturing. Take a moment to think of those displaced, their homes now rubble, neighbors and loved ones lost, communities obliterated in a nightmare of political power playing on all sides. These poor people of Syria are paying the price for a war instigated abroad from foreign lands, who equipped the few to bring down mayhem on the many, using religious divisions to stoke the flames of hatred and fear. Ultimately these people are just like you and me. They are victims of a world going mad. Show your love, show your compassion for the people of Syria are in much need right…
