نَاطِر

Waiting won't get you anywhere.

Sometimes just a verse can say a lot, that's why i'm publishing this.
Thoughts?

I hate my country

I hate my country
I hate my country for making it hard to stay
For making me leave
and so hard to leave
I hate it, because of the liars
The believers
The people who make it hard to leave
Those who make it even hard to stay
And those who will never help you go
I hate it because of the sad history
The bad present
The scary future
The half an hour
The daily two hours
The screams
The scary nights
The crazy nights
The unconditional love
I hate it because of the exaggerated dreams
The awful reality
The unrealism
The lies we believe
I hate it because of the people
I hate it because of the people who are trying
The people who are trying too hard
And those who don't bother
The ones who care
And those who don't
I hate it because of the people who fight for it
And those who fight back
I hate my country for being mine
I hate it because it's not for others
And because it is for others too
It's not for us
I hate my country because it's the worst of them all
Because it's my country
I hate it
I hate my country because and for no reason i love it.

'البترون'


There's something about the beach that I cannot explain, It's mystery itself.

The last time I visited Batroun , home of one of my favorite beaches in Lebanon, I decided that this time i'm not just gonna take some random photos to remember the day, or to post it on my Instagram .

I wanted to capture the motion, life, silence, people, boats and above all the sea.
The weather was amazing, and I decided to go to the old port because I rarely go there and i just felt like it's the perfect place to capture what I wanted.

Batroun is considered one of the oldest cities in the world, the city was founded by the Phoenicians (Ha' they're not Arabs), the city was called Petrounion to be later changed after the Muslim conquests of the region to an Arabic form known as Batroun.
I end up taking photos anyway.
Now, 3 months later, I finally had the time to write this post and upload the video, I'm happy to share it with you hopefully it will mean something to everyone who loves Batroun, and perhaps encourage who never visited this amazing city to do it asap. Here you go ...
