@ms_famouz .... My sister, My rock, My parallel.... The one who never gives up and never lets me fall. You know all my scars, all my ugliness, and you still love me. Without you idk where I'd be in this life. #mora#parallel#mysister

I was P R I V I L E G E D this weekend to spend time with family and friends, safe in the knowledge that we could enjoy our time together laughing, playing, eating, sharing and all without fear for our lives. This wasn't so for my fellow New Zealanders in Christchurch on Thursday the 15th of March (and probably from that day forth) These are people who I know to be my brothers and sisters regardless of their origins or beliefs and there is a deep place broken in my heart for their loss of life, communal safety and trust. I am so deeply sorry to the Muslim community worldwide. One person perpetrated this particular act of violence but countless faceless others in their thoughts, speech and actions, and to a degree also silence, lay in the background and are thereby colluding in this devastating betrayal. I dedicate my life and my love to protecting all beings in every moment from hatred, apathy and ignorance because they are each as divisive and dangerous as the other. I couldn't separate my seconds, minutes, hours and days over the weekend from the shadow of what I knew to have transpired in Christchurch but I will dedicate all the joy and connection I experienced with these lovely people pictured to the spirits of those severed from this life and to all the families, friends and community affected because I still believe love conquers hate. Peace. Please« #noplaceforhate#safehaven#christchurch#arohanui#mybrother#mysister
Happiest of all birthdays to this ball of sunshine, my sister!! Some thoughts from a sister of a sibling with Down’s Syndrome: One of the biggest things I’ve learned from Syd is that life has an over arching JOY and underlying sadness. The joy is having a sister who gleefully screams about Starbucks dates with the people she loves. It’s the joy that radiates in a huge hug that lifts the darkest of moods or the silly knock knock jokes she says which leave me in stitches which aren’t even funny if I try to tell them. Or the joyful grin plastered on her face like this one when she sang me happy birthday one month ago. Or the sining ‘Jesus loves me’ as a meal time prayer. These are the most precious tiny moments to be savored. 🙏 The underlying sadness is found deep within me, in the thoughts and feelings of “what would life be like/ have been with a ‘normal’ sister”. The random cravings of having an older sister to confide in growing up and now. The what-ifs and grieving ‘what could’ve beens’. It’s in embracing these thoughts and feelings have made the joyful moments much sweeter and deeper. It is the moments of sheer joy like above I choose to cling to... especially when I live 1000 miles away. #mysister#downsyndrome#twonine
Certain things never stop hurting. This is only reoccurring. To never be prepared To always wish you were still somewhere lurking. I'm cursing, I'm crying. What is this thing called dying? Like all of our existences are nature's way of lying To itself. Nothing lasts forever. We're all fragile as feathers. Even better, like the dust that Comes together in the air. Soon we'll all be there. It will all be there. In the air. #poetry#lunaharppoetry#lunaharplyrics#loss#life#death#grief#mourning#rip#sisters#mysister#loveyoualways
