Scars And Stars – Poem

All About Fame

Yes, I have seen your scars,

Still, I wish you from every shooting star.

The universe doesn’t have the power to break your soul,

Though it’s sccared, it’s still bright and whole.

Don’t be scared of the haunted past,
I am with you, no need to be aghast.
Dusk or Dawn if you feel fear,
Don’t be surprised when you see me there.
It’s not that I haven’t tried to look beneath you,
But you always shut me off whenever you’re blue.
You are the riddle, you are the clue
I’ll invest my lifetime to get to know you.
We’ll do everything to heal those scars
Even if we had to climb the stars.

Take Nothing but Memories


Thailand is a tourism mecca which has thrived by marketing experiences to people from all walks of life. Whether you are looking for a party, a spiritual experience, or a family vacation; Thailand can cater to, and accordingly take money from you. Due to the vast array of tourism sectors, I always recommend that people pre-meditate what they are seeking out of their experience. While each person’s experience is contingent on a variety of factors and personal preferences, specific locations do attract different crowds and experiences. In my year away from home, I went to Thailand three times and always end up going north. While the South is beautiful and has incredible things to offer, I know what I am looking for out of my travel experiences; and these things are geographically specific.

Whichever form of travel you are seeking, Thailand is a great stepping stone into the world of…

Before the Fall


Before the Fall

Before the Fall

In that moment of anticipation
laced with exhilaration,
do you contemplate
the consequences, consider
your place in the greater scheme
or deem it immaterial,
merely a leaf going
where the wind takes you?

Your Mother

Vita Brevis

Submitted by Jamie Dedes

a tattered memoir in sepia tones
hanging on the wall of your office
a tiny plump sparrow of a woman
by a lone stone cottage
toothless, poor old thing
a warm shawl pulled to cover her head
an apron, worn shoes
from a time long past
from another world
my Turkish grandmother
what was her name?
you never said, i never asked

Black Hole Traffic Accidents May Produce Monster Mergers

The 1990s were the time of an unstable political situation in Serbia, heavy economic and political sanctions enforced by the international community, hyperinflation, a large decline in production and employment, a public health crisis, a huge impoverishment of the population, and an influx of over 850,000 forced migrants (refugees and internally displaced persons), which inevitably put a strain on people’s nerves. It was difficult to say no to negativity that sucked many a man dry so the fact that quite a few lost their raison d’etre came as no surprise. A total of 300,000 young educated people emigrated from Serbia during the first two war years, whereas as many as 16,620 took their own life in the war-torn 90s, with the highest number of suicides occurring at the time of the culmination of the crisis connected to the disintegration of Yugoslavia (1991-1993) (source: ResearchGate).

Back then, people were…

On June 30, the World Will See an Alternative Iran

Freedom Star

June 30-free Iran-Villepinte Exposition -Paris – France

What’s often missing in discussions of Western policy on Iran is the role of the Iranian people and their desires. A comprehensive policy must before all else take into consideration events on the ground in Iran or else it would yet again fail to address one of the most crucial foreign policy issues of recent times.

The wave of protests which started at the end of last year and continued through the New Year shook not only the regime in power but the entire world. The people of Iran poured onto the streets across the country rejecting the clerical regime in its entirety. Chants of “death to Khamenei and Rouhani” and “reformists, hardliners, the game is over” left no doubt that the people of Iran want regime change and nothing short of that. The people called for a republic and a free Iran. To the surprise of many Iran…

“The little garbage scavengers” innocent victims the Waste Business Mafia in corrupt Mullahs regime of Iran.

Freedom Star

Garbage ChildrenOn the eve of May 1st, the International Labor Day, I will present this article to children labor, the most vulnerable people in my homeland. Innocent children, who in the anti-humanitarian regime of Velayat-e faqih, are forced to search among the city’s wastes from morning to night in highly inhumane conditions, instead of the classroom and the family’s warm arms, because corrupt and criminal Mullahs, IRGC and their accomplices want add to their wealth. But it’s not far off the day that by Iranian Uprising, this corrupt and criminal regime, will be thrown to the dustbin of history forever.

Aziz is a 12-year-old boy, who has no part of his life like ordinary children, he gathers up to 19 hours a day and earns just 300 to 400 thousand Tomans a month.


The existence of child labor in Iran’s capital and metropolitan areas has long been a phenomenon and undeniable…
