Book Review: In The Rearview

In the RearviewIn the Rearview by Maria Ann Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The journal entries and even more, the poetry is amazing! It will break your heart. It will give you hope. You will love it. This beautifully written story is truly realistic.

I don't like cutting scenes. But there are not many gory ones in the story. It's more about the emotional turmoil and healing.

Monday Blessings #27

Hello Poetteers,

My third poetry collection, Hugs and Kisses is published! It is available in paperback & kindle!

I'm finally getting back into journaling. Thanks to a new friend for inspiring me!

A new chapter of my life has begun! Hopefully one thing it brings is more blogging and novel writing. Recently I've been more into poetry.

I'm finally getting started on spoken word!

I'm finally getting to promote my books! I have an order of bookmarks coming in!

Thank you and love, Fida

Bits & Pieces: Live Life

You know creativity
but you copy creativity
it makes you fake
maybe for once
you should try

Be original
show us something
we haven't seen.


Be who you are
a Muslim woman
support your fellow Muslim women
musicians like Yuna
designers like Marwa.


Chill in the hall
listen to lectures
so much to learn
we need silence
a few minutes of reflection.

*thanks to a friend from camp for the inspiration. I hope you see this (:

Poem - At the Lake

I am lightweight
standing by the lake
watching the current
moving fast
the wind blowing
rustling the leaves
on the trees

I'm already on
an elevated area
but I feel
out of body
floating, flying
in the sky
I need to take a seat.

*inspired by being on the lake at camp MYNA.
