Percy Bysshe Shelly says “Poets are the unacknowledged Legislators of the world”..
We, GenX, are a generation that has been brought up with a world filled with Poetry. And it is with great pleasure that I introduce this new category to our blog. We, at One True Blue, aim to embrace all subjects relevant to us, and to make it a Platform of culture, education and knowledge. And Poetry is food for our souls.
Nadia Abdel Basset Al Itani was born in the beautiful capital of Lebanon, Beirut.
She says “Since childhood, a combination of risk-taking and openness has always led me to experience new things and freely express my thoughts and feelings”.
A loving wife and mother of two kids. Her husband and kids never stop to inspire her love for writing. Her passion for deep, beautiful expression since adolescence has led her to write her first poems in 1998.
They were all were inspired from lived experiences. With pure love, she shares with you her words and emotions in each verse for every heart in the universe.
She adds “With profound love and deep gratitude, I dedicate my writings… To my precious parents, to my beloved husband, to my lovely kids, and to all the passionate lovers in our world. May the verses of my poems find their path to your sincere hearts so you can experience the truest of emotions”.
Hoping you will enjoy the first read, the truest of feelings, Love.
Nadine for One True Blue
It All Started As A Normal Day
It all started as a normal day
But it ended in a different way
Nothing has been planned
Even his existence on this land
Feelings in me again woke up
And beside him I stood up
Something strange began
I was falling into a man
Into someone I don’t know
But for him respect I show
Someone I did not plan to meet
Or even in his book to read
He promised to be near
Till that day I will tear
He is so nice and gentle
As well he is tender
No more words to describe my knight
Who entered my life one night
No wonder to him I got attached
But I am afraid from him to get detached
I can’t stand him being away
He is in my mind all day
He started to deviate the light
Into my life from the first sight
For that no one will have the right
To take him from me without a fight
I do respect the one I care
With whom my life I will share
But I am afraid to fall in
Where I have never been
He became my source of inspiration
I won’t admit his separation
I shall fight till the end
Cause his love is all what I demand…
