a thousand days and two lives.

a thousand nights have made me older … colder …

I can’t remember how it all started. it feels like a nightmare..

when I look at my past I feel I’m two people or maybe I lived two lives, one before the crisis and another one after it started… that one before is a long long time ago …

now I’m there in my room watching some pictures of the old times in Damascus … yes it’s a thousand days that feel like a thousand years …

this picture was taken in days like these four years ago near Christmas time. this years no lights will be lit …

in order to build you need years and years but in order to destroy , you only need moments.. will I see these lights again in Damascus ?

Many times we have discussed and talked about the long time ago-called “Arab Spring”, and specially about Syria. She always insisted to me that the bad guy was Assad and that they were on the good side, and islamists were a necessary evil in the fight against the oppressor, but harmless, as far as “Syrians will never accept their doctrine, because Syrians live all together side by side, despite what they believe… our fight is political, not religious. It’s the regime who accuses us of being islamists, but islamists are only one section of the…
