ephemeral like the floating particles in the pouring sunlight through dusty curtains in a long-emptied room but filled with an air of loss and lingering sense of regret after your departure

My love is the color of sunsets
Though worn from travel and toil,
"I'm home!" I'd call from the distance
Running into your embrace
and there I would stay through the night
My love is the morning dew
As the daylight comes, it is renewed
Lingering in timelessness
Again, I get lost in you
Your love is my refuge
My center of gravity
You, the one I come home to.

I am the empty seat.
The unoccupied side of the bed.
The clothes that don't see the light of day
In a dusty wardrobe.
That distance not traversed.
I am, oft, absent.
but I want to be that cup of coffee
That sits on your desk.
As you write your letters.
Once a while you will look at me.
And hold me.
I hope this warmth would suffice.
In absence of mine.

The status of Islam‘s relevance and
compatibility to modern context such as individual women’s rights is a
debatable issue. Presently, in Muslim communities, discrepancies in gender
equality still occur despite the claim that Islam has already given women their
rights. Muslim women are being discriminated against in education, are deemed
unfit to lead in some countries and they don’t have rights to their own bodies
and opinions. These discrepancies, examined in Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Infidel and Davar Ardalan’s My Name Is Iran are caused by the
different interpretations of Islam. A woman’s education opportunities
are stripped as they get married because the society demands women to be
homemakers and faithful wives to their husban…
My blurb was featured here. But I actually did a full writeup for all the questions. So I suppose, this was the full thing that I came up with if it suits your fancy.
Kamilah Mat Kamil, McMaster University, Canada, Electrical and Biomedical
Engineering, B.Eng 1.How much did you change as a person as
the result of your overseas education?
I am definitely not the same
person as I was when I left the country. Although there was little to no
physical changes (I have not grown any taller nor gained any weight as my
friends can testify), there is a big change in my outlook of the world. Being
in contact with people of different cultures and different backgrounds abroad
has widened my perspectives. It has given me an opportunity to be exposed to
different sides of the same story. For example, having known people who have
actually emigrated from war-torn countries or refugees in Canada. You get a
first-hand account of the goings-on and it makes you question what the media
has been dishin…
