I wish y'all Arabic the best. You are not in Middle East but, you're one of them. I've always gotten along with Arabics, and no one knows how much Arabics have spread their hands to save me. Arabic League will soon boom, and you'll even teach your native language. I'm working into it!

Thank u buddy ..this type of love that makes people happiest 🌹
It's a shame how western media has literally sidelined every aspect of our culture like poetry, music, calligraphy, history..etc and erected a savage image of us..glad to know that u don't be fooled by media..We already teach our language to those who like to know it.. nothing prevents us from doin' that..
Much love & respect to u wherever u 're 🙏🌹

Dear Mary, it is never to late to learn how to draw or become an artist even if it just a hobby. For example, I've always wanted to write poetry and 2 years ago I created a tumblr blog dedicated to my original poetry and reflections and I intend to publish a book. poets-wonderland.tumblr.com

I think the last time I held a pencil to draw was when I was ten.. Though, now that I think about it, I think I don't draw because, ober time, I've convinced myself that it's something that I can't do.. that I'm not gifted enough. But I'll give it a try.. I think. :)
That's amazing. You must be proud. I'll make sure to follow the blog from now on.

اب لے رہا ہے خود پہ یہ الزام کوئی اور
اب ہو رہا ہے عشق میں بدنام کوئی اور
آغاز تو ہوتا ہے محبت میں دلفریب....!!!!!
اس عشق میں ہوتا ہے پر انجام کوئی اور
تم اب بھی کہہ رہے ہو معاف کردوں سب خطأ
کل شب کو سنگ اس کے تھا انسان کوئی اور
تھا ساتھ کوئی اور ابھی کل کی بات ہے...!!!
پہلو میں کر رہا تھا کل آرام کوئی اور
اس آنکھ میں کاجل کی ادا بول رہی تھی
اس پیار کو تھا دے رہا پروان کوئی اور
کل رات میرا ذکر تھا میرے رقیب میں
کل رات کر رہا تھا یوں کلام کوئی اور
ارسل لگاؤ یار سے اتنا بھی نہ کرو
یہ دے رہا ہے عشق میں پیام کوئی اور

"A Final Farewell" by Alex
If you knew that you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

The first thing that I would do is pray, and thank my God for blessing me with a healthy and joyous life. The second thing I would do, is inform my family and closest friends, while asking them to celebrate my life, our friendship, and the good times that we were fortunate enough to share together. The third thing I would do, is take my trusted companion (princess) for a long walk along the beach; to meditate, while listening to the ocean waves crash and the birds sing our favorite melodies, as we watch the clouds roll bye and behold the good-bye sunset.
Finally, I would request those who loved me, to read a few of my beloved poems during the funeral mass, while also asking my dear musician friends to perform three of my favorite songs; so that family, friends and my trusted companion, can bid me a final farewell.

Mansoob The Kuch Log Meri Zindagi Ke Saath
Aksar Wohi Mile Hain Bari Berukhi Ke Saath
Yun To Main Hans Para Hun Tumhare Liye
Kitne Sitaare Toot Pare Hain Ek Hansi Ke Saath
Fursat Mile To Apna Giraibaan Bhi Dekh Le
Ae Dost Yun Na Khel Meri Be-basi Ke Saath
Majbooryon Ki Baat Chali hai To Mein Kahan
Hum Ne Piya Hai Zehar Bhi Aksar khushi Ke Saath
Chehre Badal Badal Ke Mujhe Mil Rahe Hain Log
Itna Bura Salook Meri Saadgi Ke Saath?
"Mohsin" Karam Bhi Ho Jis Main Khaloos Bhi
Mujhe Ko Ghazab Ka Pyaar Hai Us Dushmani Ke Saath

Do you feel as if you’re better acquainted with females or males?

Males when I am working as a Network Engineer.
Women when I work as a Poet or a Musician.
I have a very good understanding of how men think and I can predict how most men will respond to different situations. Although I enjoy working with men, I prefer the companionship, conversation and emotional support that women provide. Maybe that is because as a poet and musician I appreciate that without women, nobody would listen to my music or read my poetry. Also, whenever I perform, 80% of my audience are comprised of women. So if I had to depend upon men to make a living as either a writer or a musician, I would be homeless and financially bankrupt. And... I bet that many well known musicians such as the Beatles, Billy Joel, James Taylor or the Eagles would all admit that without the support of women, they could not earn a living as musicians, composers and writers.
Without Women, Music, and Poetry, life would lose all meaning for me, and would not be worth living.

Have you ever written a love poem for somebody?

Hmm, kinda sorta. I've never written a romantic poem and given it to someone directly as a gift if that is what you are wondering. I have, however, written romantic poetry with a certain person in mind. I have yet to show him those poems though.
Partly because they're old and a bit rubbish.
But also because I'm shy, haha.

تیری جستجو کے حصار سے
تیرے خواب تیرے خیال سے
مے وہ شخص ہوں جو کھڑا رہا
تیری چاہتوں سے زرا پرے
کبھی دل کی بات کہی نا تھی
جو کہی تو وہ بھی دبی دبی
میرے لفظ پورے تو تھے مگر
تیری سماعتوں سے زرا پرے

Wrote yesterday.
دل کے قریب ایک شخص تھا
چال ایسی کہ جیسے رقص تھا
پلکیں اٹھانا قیامت تھی جیسے
نگاہِ میں اسکی سوز نقش تھا
چہرے پہ عجب اداسی تھی
جیسے محبت کا عکس تھا
میری روح قید تھی اس میں
ساتھ اس کا جیسے قفس تھا
پلکوں سے ہیرے گرے تھے
کس نے کہا وہ اشک تھا
مانگا اور میسر نہ ہوا ساحلّ
ضرور چاہت میں نَقص تھا

آ کہ وابستہ ہیں اس حسن کی یادیں تجھ سے
جس نے اس دل کو پری خانہ بنا رکھا تھا
جس کی الفت میں بھُلا رکھی تھی دنیا ہم نے
دہر کو دہر کا افسانہ بنا رکھا تھا
آشنا ہیں ترے قدموں سے وہ راہیں جن پر
اس کی مدہوش جوانی نے عنایت کی ہے
کارواں گزرے ہیں جن سے اُسی رعنائی کے
جس کی ان آنکھوں نے بے سود عبادت کی ہے
تجھ سے کھیلی ہیں وہ محبوب ہوائیں جن میں
اس کے ملبوس کی افسردہ مہک باقی ہے
تجھ پہ بھی برسا ہے اُس بام سے مہتاب کا نور
جس میں بیتی ہوئی راتوں کی کسک باقی ہے
تو نے دیکھی ہے وہ پیشانی، وہ رخسار، وہ ہونٹ
زندگی جن کے تصور میں لٹا دی ہم نے
تجھ پہ اُٹھی ہیں وہ کھوئی ہوئی ساحر آنکھیں
تجھ کو معلوم ہے کیوں عمر گنوا دی ہم نے
ہم پہ مشترکہ ہیں احسان غمِ الفت کے
اتنے احسان کہ گنواؤں تو گنوا نہ سکوں
ہم نے اس عشق میں کیا کھویا ہے کیا سیکھا ہے
جز ترے اور کو سمجھاؤں تو سمجھا نہ سکوں ✨🖤

جیسے پھٹے پرانے کپڑوں والے بچے
اپنی خالی جیبوں کا احساس لیے

کسی دکان کے بند کھڑکی سے لگ کر
پہروں تکتے ہیں ناں
میں بھی تم کو یوں ہی اکثر تکتی رہتی ہوں۔۔۔۔

Do you like taking pictures

When I was young I had a Pentax k1000 and taking photographs was one of my hobbies. Currently I have written over 200 poems and reflections for a poetry book I am going to publish which will also have illustrations and photographs in it. But... I need to get off my arse and figure out how to use a cannon digital camera I purchase a while back. And I am writing this text and going to post it on askfm as a way to remind myself to stop making excuses and read the book on how to operate the camera.
p.s. I can't believe how much I procrastinate sometimes. It's beyond embarrassing and is borderline incompetent/irresponsible. lol

Why are most people here? Meet new people? Find a date? Hook ups? Or just ask mostly silly questions?

The people using askfm that I enjoy the most are those who like meeting new people and who enjoy poetry, music, humor and having a good time. With that said, there are some people using askfm who are currently in a relationship but are looking for a clandestine relationship where they exchange salacious messages and erotic photographs. Those folks I block because I have no interest in that lifestyle or behavior.

Who should I ask if I want to get actual good questions and not non sensical sh!t

What an interesting question. I will be honest with you, most of the people who asked great questions and wrote well and were actually able to inform as well as entertain, left askfm by 2019. I remember between 2015 and 2019 being entertained on askfm reading poetry, short stories and thought provoking questions, and being able to debate with people about politics, religion, traveling, education, etc. Now if you even mention the word God or express an opinion that offends a woke activist, askfm will suspend your account. I've had at least 10 accounts suspended since 2015. So now I keep my head down and seldom discuss anything controversial. Two days ago I posted something that referred to human life being valuable and mentioned the word God and immediately received a direct message accusing me of being a "brain dead Christian" and within 24 hours my VIP status was revoked. Lol
As if I give a shit. The point being that any thought provoking question or challenge to the cancel culture will result in an askfm complaint and eventual suspension of account. And that is precisely why all of the great writers have walked away from askfm.
Now whenever I send a thoughtful shoutout I receive mostly an I don't know (IDK) or askfm users will get rude and tell me to get lost or worse. So I don't know what to tell you. I have a few people on askfm who like to read my writing and sometimes we say hello or I might ask them a few general type questions. Askfm is not, in my opinion, as interesting as it once was before the reporting, censoring, blocking and account suspensions. I'd be surprised if askfm is still in business in 2024.

Have you made any New Years Resolutions? If yes, what are they? If no, do you have any plans in general?

BlueEyesWhiteGuy’s Profile PhotoBlueEyesWhiteGuy
I prefer to call them "goals" rather than resolutions! It's silly, but it makes me feel like they are more attainable. Anyway, here are my goals for 2022:
- Start working out regularly again, lose the weight I gained over the course of the pandemic/lockdown and get back into shape!
- Continue working hard at university, get good grades.
- Write more! Update my poetry blog regularly.
- Take up vlogging again.
- Record one second of video footage for each day this year. At the end of the year, put all the footage into a montage video.
