A global birth date

…. A poem dedicated to john Lennon on his birthday

9th of October
Birthday and rebirth
Celebrate it forever
Dwellers of mother earth
A newborn’s first cry
That no one can deny
A John Lennon’s expression
Correcting every mission
No other year can be over
With war and disorder
Be happy to celebrate
Every moment why shall you wait?
Property is the problem
Satisfaction is so Seldom
Until you only take
What you only need no excess so fake
Creating it misbalance
In life systems and in finance
The wheels are turning around
Time whispers with no sound

An original poem in English by Nada Amine Awar

ABOUT THE POET ~
I am a female poet, and a writer in Arabic and English. I am also an independent environmental awareness specialist and activist since 1992 when I assisted Dr. Mohammad Khaowli who was the chairman of Geology department in the American University of Beirut to collect signatures for the petition that was submitted to the UN so that the first UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) could be held between 3 June and 14 June 1992 in Rio.., Fourth of January, 1957 I was born in Quarnayel, Lebanon. Being an only daughter among three sons, gave my whole life an aromatic taste., I got a master degree in political science from the American University of Beirut. Mahatma Gandhi is the only politician I follow and respect. Gamal Abd Nasir is the only Arab leader I admire., Rabindranath Tagore is my spiritual master. His poetry, writings, music, and universal thought is a real fountain for my spiritual uplifting., Chief Seattle’s “Message To the Modern World” broadened my views and deepened my interrelationships with Mother Nature and the GREAT SPIRIT., John Lennon is my daily friend. I recognize his song “Imagine” as my national anthem., I am a fan of Yoko Ono; I appreciate what she gave to the “whole world” through her love to John., I believe that the cosmic law is the only law that any creature must follow in order to understand the simple truth of life and death: that is another form of existence.
