“You are simple in a very complicated way “, he said softly to her.

“Am I?”, she answered with even softer smile.

“Yes, you are”.

And they kept admiring the orange horizon.

“Are you afraid of admitting that you are romantic?”

“No. I am not afraid of admitting.  I am just afraid of acting as one!”

“It is not a thing you should be afraid of!”

“Yes, it is. In our world, it is. This world has been cruelest than ever. It doesn’t get what it means to be romantic. It doesn’t get what it means to be a soft, white, pure and a clean soul. I will be misunderstood. I will be mistaken as an idiot. That’s a thing I don’t want to happen”, he said.

“You are an idiot to think like that. Yet .. you are absolutely right!”, she answered.

Short things (German)

Published August 13, 2014 by Dalia Hazem

Freude ist sehr wertvoll, dass wir sie schätzen sollen. Es kann nicht sein, dass wir sie als selbstverständlich betrachten oder sie als gegeben annehmen, denn obwohl sie aus sehr einfachen Dingen und Ereignissen stimmt, ist sie sehr teuer und kann manchmal nicht so leicht gefunden werden.


Ich weiß, wo ich meine Freude finden kann .. ich schätze sie .. ich halte stark an sie .. Mit anderen Worten: Ich bin nicht bereit, sie zu verlieren, denn meine Freude ist mein Leben.

“I feel like I am useless!”

“No, you are not.”

“Yes, I am.”

“For God sake! Uhm .. Look! Some people in this world are meant to be useless!”

She stopped talking when he threw her with a sharp, admonishing, wondering look. That means she needs to make things clearer to him, before she gets an unjustified divorce or a reckless punch on her lovely nose!

“That doesn’t mean that you are useless. I am just giving you an example. Listen till the end. Let’s start it all over again! Some people in this world are meant to be useless and there is nothing wrong with that!

Imagine that we all were useful! No one then will understand (how useful the useful is!) or even (what it looks like to be useful!) or (what useful is).

It’s some kind of essential contradiction .. a contradiction we need to feel a lot of things around us. We need the uselessness to help ourselves feel and understand the usefulness. In fact, the uselessness is already useful!

See! The uselessness turned out to be awesome :)”

He nodded and answered: “Then I am not that useless!”

“You are not useless at all. You are totally useful. You are awesome. You are you.
And remember that there is a reason and a “use” for every thing.”
