A letter to the auther


my dream


a link about my dream



It was a long time ago.
I have almost forgotten my dream.
But it was there then,
In front of me,
Bright like a sun—
My dream.
And then the wall rose,
Rose slowly,
Between me and my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky—
The wall.
I am black.
I lie down in the shadow.
No longer the light of my dream before me,
Above me.
Only the thick wall.
Only the shadow.
My hands!
My dark hands!
Break through the wall!
Find my dream!
Help me to shatter this darkness,
To smash this night,
To break this shadow
Into a thousand lights of sun,
Into a thousand whirling dreams
Of sun!


a letter to the poet

dear Langston hughes….

between all the poems that I have red, I didn’t feel so affected for this point.

you changed my entire thinking about everything, sometimes I felt so broken inside because I haven’t that big self confidence that I used to have, I was giving up for anything and any reason, but now it is really different.

after I red your poem I decided to not give up for any reason , I will be more brave and more confident to achieve my dreams because if I listen to every one’s opinion  I will never achieve my aims.

I hope that your poem spread so fast and any person can read it because i’m sure that anyone reads it will totally change his bad traits and thinking.

my pleasure Rana Assadi.


my dream

any person around the world has a dream , if someone says that he don’t have a dream then he is a liar or there is no benefit to him in this life.

the dream is something you wish to have or to be , to do, to see and to achieve.

my dream is to be a famous person , but not any famous person, wherever

my dream is to be a famous  Astronomer. are you asking your self why I chose this kind of dream?.

the answer is that I’m really obsessed with understanding and learning where are we came from and how other planets came.

also, space is my addiction because sometimes I set alone and start thinking about how are the space and the planets are looking from up there? and how much big they are?, is there other global like the earth?…

for achieving my dream I will not  give up for any person and I would not let anyone to break my strength or even my self confidence.

I know I’m only at the beginning but, I have to know how to start in order to achieve my goals in a perfect way.
