#ENFAF DAY9: Laughing In Agony

June 9, 2015

Wow been forever since I wrote in this blog
but I return with something interesting, my friend Omar had started a very interesting art move called ENFAF (Every Night For A Fortnight) where he chooses 3 key words from a randomly selected suggested words by other people and artsts/writers can contribute with whatever they see fit.
I wanted to join since it started but for a personal reason I couldn’t but I’m finally out of my cocoon =D

Here is a very short piece written in under 2 hours for Day 9 with key words Laugh, Agony and Ash

Laughing in Agony

STAGE 01: A hallway, A long hallway, with numbered rooms, 102, 103, 104.. and finally 105. A man stands there, hesitated to enter that room. There is laughter everywhere. People are screaming. Others are smashing things. It is like a lunatic’s circus around this place. But this room has something different about it, it is calm, and the person inside is repeating something over and over and over again.

STAGE 02: The male figure gets closer to the door and he starts to hear clearly what’s being said.

“A tisket a tasket”
“A green and yellow basket”
“I wrote a letter to my love”
“And on the way I dropped it”
“I dropped it, I dropped it”
“And on the way I dropped it”
“A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket”

The 20-something guy stood there, kept hearing this rhyme over and over again, very hesitant to enter the room, he seems like he knows who is in there, but he was unable to face it, seeing someone you know turning into a different person, knowing about the pain they are facing.

STAGE 03: A nurse disturbs his moments of biding.

“You know this patient?” she asked,
“Y-Yes.” The guy answered with hesitation,
“Since the very moment he got here, he refused to talk with anyone, the only things he kept saying are these verses, doctors failed to know what or why he keeps repeating them.” She tried to explain.
“…” the guy kept his silence.
“We don’t know his name so we call him Ash, you will know why when you see him, please, go ahead, he is harmless.” She continued.
“…” the guy kept even calmer.

STAGE 04: The guy opens the door and enter the room to see a guy in grey, he is completely grey, as if the colors of life has been sucked of him, he is just sitting there on his bed repeating the same verses looking down at his feet, the guy approached, and without even rising his face, the grey guy stopped talking suddenly

“You found me!” the grey guy said.

The nurse was totally shocked.

“He said something else!”
“I will go call the doctors!”

STAGE 05: The guy approached, kneel and looked him in the eye.

“What happened to you buddy?” The guy asked.
“I kept laughing. All I did was laughing and they got me here.” Ash answered.
“Why were you laughing?” The guy asked in curiosity.
“I was trying to hide the pain.” Ash answered.
“That’s funny though, you , out of all people, are the one who found me first.” Ash continued.
“I’ll always be here for you buddy.” The guy answered.
“It’s too late, look at me, I’m even being called Ash for what I am now.” Ash stated with a smile.
“What happened to you buddy, why did you turn into that? Let us help you.” the guy asked.
“This is a secret; maybe I will tell the one who will find me next.” Ash answered.
“But, because you found me, have this.” Ash continued giving the guy a piece of paper.

Not shortly after that Ash started to sing the rhymes again.

“A tisket a tasket”
“A green and yellow basket”
“I wrote a letter to my love”
“And on the way I dropped it”
“I dropped it, I dropped it”
“And on the way I dropped it”
“A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket”

STAGE 06: The guy took the paper and opened it, he read what’s inside and his eyes showed strong emotion, it was shock and empathy that can be seen through his eyes. And not for long, a doctor and the nurse came in.

“He is repeating the same song.” The doctor said in confusion.
“I swear he said something else just when we entered few minutes ago.” The nurse said.
“Do you know this patient?” The doctor asked the guy.
“No, I thought he was someone else” the guy answered.
“Then we better keep searching for someone who know him again.” The doctor confirmed.

As the door closes, The guy saw Ash smiles widely. It is clearly because he knew that this he got his message. Until one day, maybe, someone else can reveal the secret behind the guy who laughed in agony.

Dreams DO Come True!

July 11, 2009

Hi everyone! This is Karim (Karimu). I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written anything in the blog but there have been several -and radical- changes in my life. I left Palestine and headed to Algeria after 4 years being kept in Gaza but -thanks to god- everything is very good right now, I actually managed to leave before the brutal Israeli war on Gaza so that is something that I’m truly, truly thankful for!

Getting used to my new life wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be but there were some moments when things went really smoothly -unexpectedly!-. The hardest part was getting used to school especially since I was at a senior year in high school and the probably the most important test in my life was waiting for me at the end of it. Things like: spending 10 hours a day in school, dealing with a completely new and different program than I used to study, getting to know new people and building new relationships were the most challenging for me -at the academic level to say, at least!-

No one, I repeat, NO ONE though I would succeed in the BAC exam despite the fact that I was a hard worker and that I was officially the ‘No.1’ student in Palestine for 11 years straight! Not that they didn’t believe in me, but there were so many new and different things to me that a lot of people thought I couldn’t make it and of course because the percentage of success in this test is usually less than 30%. But not me, I knew what I was capable of! I kept pushing myself harder and harder until I achieved my first success, I ranked first in the first trimester of the year with a 12.05 average.. People (teahcers and my friends) were shocked… “What’s with the new guy?” they said. This was the first step and as proceeded more success came to me and I achieved the unachievable like being the first to hit an average of 14.5 in arabic and other different stuff that are kind of hard to explain.

So, I proudly announce that I succeeded in ly BAC exam -finally- and that I’m going to study Dental Surgery in college next year, out of 440,000 syudent that passed the test we were only 118,000 that succeeded!!. Just to tell you people, Dreams DO come true… that is, of course, if you beleieved in yourself and did your best!

Karimu…


EIEN Lyrics ~ Translation + Romanji ~

EIEN ” Eternity “ – BoA

Translation:

I’m certain that my fingers were made
for touching your cheek
for touching your cheek

I’m certain that the shining moon is there
for me and you to look at it
it was only for me and you to look at it

whenever i felt down
you were always there by my side
you always smile for me
but now you are gone

from the deepest part of my hands
my sadness pours out in large drops, MY LOVE
in this town, Tonight
I think I’m the one who is crying all the time

Because you loved me
I am who I am now
the time that’s carried by the wind
it brings back the eternity of that day
Bye bye bye
Why did you say bye bye
why did you say bye bye

At that time, about that song we always listen to
it came on while we were standing at the farther corner
and we shared our phones together

and then suddenly you pull away
and the phone comes out of my ear
and I pretend to get mad

our eyes eyes would meet suddenly
our lips would press together
you said that you will always protect me

I try to reach up the navy blue sky
I feel like my heart is about to explode
Just hold me, one more time

If I could have been honest with you
This never would have happened
When i wake up, everything will be a dream
And then you will say bye bye bye
why did you say bye bye
why did you say bye bye

I was looking destructed at the people on the street
while walking with you, the roads with green trees
you told me, make pasta for me next time
and that you will always protect me… but

from the deepest part of my hands
my sadness pours out in large drops, MY LOVE
in this town, Tonight
I think I’m the one who is crying all the time

Because you loved me
I am who I am now
the time that’s carried by the wind
it brings back the eternity of that day

I try to reach up the navy blue sky
I feel like my heart is about to explode
Just hold me, one more time

If I could have been honest with you
This never would have happened
When i wake up, everything will be a dream
And then you will say bye bye bye
why did you say bye bye
why did you say bye bye

bye bye bye
why did you say bye bye
why did you say bye bye

Romanji:

Watashi no yubi wa kitto
kimi no hoho ni sotto
fureru tame dake ni atte
fureru tame dake ni atte

kagayaku tsuki wa kitto

miageru tame dake ni atte
miageru tame daki ni attano

kujikesou na toki ni itsumo tonari ni ite
waratte kureta kimi wa mou inai nda

poroporo te no hira kara koboreru kanashimi My Love
konya kono machi de tabun watashi ga ichiban naiteiru

kimi ni aisareta kara watashi wa watashi ni nareta
toki wo hakobu kaze yo douka ano hi no eien wo kaeshite
Bye Bye Bye
Why did you say bye bye bye
Why did you say bye bye bye

Ano koro futari itsumo kiiteta kyoku ga
futo machikado ni nagareteru
iyafon katahou zutsu de
kimi ga totsuzen tsuyoku hipparu kara ne
chotto mimi kara hazurechatte
watashi ga okoru to fuzakete

fui ni kimi to me ga atte kuchibiru wo kasaneta
zutto watashi wo mamoru tte itta noni

Neibii buruu no sora sotto te wo nobashite miru
harisakersou na mune mou ichido tada dakishimete

ano toki sunao ni nareba konna koto ni naranakatta
mezametara subete ga yume de atteyo
soshite mata fuzakete
Bye Bye Bye
Why did you say bye bye bye
Why did you say bye bye bye

Michi iku hito wo bonyari miteita
kimi to aruita puratanasu namiki

Bye Bye Bye
Why did you say bye bye bye
