When I was five years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life.
Ich denke, wie sehr ein Mensch an eine rosige Zukunft glauben kann hängt davon ab, wie oft er schon ein Happy End erlebt hat Ob du nach einem Streit mit einem Freund dich wutentbrannt von ihm abwendest oder dich mit ihm aussprichst Allein dadurch verändert sich die unmittelbare Zukunft doch ungemein Es ist niemals dasselbe Wenn es nur ein noch so kleiner Funken ist wenn ich dieser eine Funken sein kann, will ich ihn dir schenken Und dir das ultimative Happy End zeigen
We can never turn back the pages of time, though we may wish to relive ahappy moment, or say goodbye just one last time, we never can, because the sands of time continue to fall, and we can't turn the hourglass over.
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church; the Jews called it "Hanukka" and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukka!" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall!"
You smile, but you're not really happy. You ask, but you don't want to know. You talk, but you aren't saying anything. You laugh, but you don't find it funny. You cry, but it doesn't mean anything. You get up, but you're not really awake. You sleep, but you aren't resting. You're alive, but you aren't really living.
Meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me. You made me so happy. I don’t want you to be lost or afraid or anything like that. From here on out, I know things might be hard sometimes. But no matter what, please don’t ever regret the time we spent together.
“I feel that God made my body perfect the way I was born. Then man robbed me, took away my power, and left me a cripple. My womanhood was stolen. If God had wanted those body parts missing, why did he create them? I just pray that one day no woman will have to experience this pain. It will become a thing of the past. People will say "Did you hear, female genital mutilation has been outlawed in Somalia?" Then the next country, and the next, and so on, until the world is safe for all women. What ahappy day that will be, and that's what I'm working toward. In'shallah, if God is willing, it will happen.
