Let there be a light As the stars nailed in the sky shine giving us hope that we are not alone in the universe. In this way the souls of people who exist on Earth to give hope and the sense of togetherness to everyone. On the basis of this feeling we should support our comrades offering the hope for the future .Lets embrace peace by uniting with love throughout the earth!


It started its trip before
its winds had even opened.
Yet, on a warm day
It decided to leave the airy
climate of Middle East.
It waved a signal and set out
like a big vessel.
So, I remember my late mother
Telling me:
“Jwan, your water is finished”
You must go now.
So, I went as I had dreamt
as a child to visit
as many foreign countries as possible.
Adventure and opportunism
attracted me.
This is how the swallow flew away
from its parents’ nest.
I kept looking from above at the big ships
of the Mediterranean leaving
for the cold Atlantic waters,
to the western world.
Ioannis Karazoli .


I was seeking for your lightning glance day and night
I fell in love with you and forgot my love for school!
My daily route

turned to a fixed orbit leading to you only
and when our eyes meet your look captures me and I paralyze!
I’m confused…!

I don’t know what to do or say..! I get delirious saying tales
to overcome my bewilderness. The moments with you
inspired hope to me

in the long road of love. My senses function,
my eyes talk before I even open them! My heartbeats
don’t let me talk!

Cloves fall from my hands and I rush home
longing for dawn! Expecting to meet love
