Kill

Kill, kill, kill everything.

Kill the light falling on this page
like a false promise of warmth;
kill the news of a world in spiral.

Kill time, cruel time, ruthless time,
endless time, fleeting time, time
laying at your feet like a bored dog.

Kill hope, lazy hope, easy hope, hope peeking
like misguided blossoms in a snow storm.
Kill this, the need to reach out and touch,
say I am here, and you?

Kill that, the urge to call them, to hear them,
to assure them as only you want to be assured.
Kill it, kill it all, kill the want to live again, kill
the want to die, kill the want to be, to become.

Kill it and remain, not a reminder, just
a hollow shell mistaken for what was,

Catchy Headlines To Make A Pointless And Useless Story Go Viral

I am sure you’ve all clicked on such titles only to find out the story is lame and stupid. I wouldn’t go as far as to say “Journalism is dying” in Lebanon but the amount of pointless and stupid online stories that are being published is increasing dramatically and we are to blame as well as the journalists.
PS: The above titles were all made up so don’t go looking for them

Miss Lebanon National Costume From 2011 Till 2014 At Miss Universe

It won’t be easy for Miss Lebanon to win Miss Universe anytime soon but since we have all these world renowned Lebanese fashion designers, it shouldn’t be hard to come up with a nicer national costume and have a chance at winning the Best National Costume award.

Don't Let Morality Die

When you look back at Auschwitz 70 years later and still feel the guilt of a collective moral catastrophe... 
Don't let history repeat itself...

Can Someone Explain This Article To Me?

I’ve read this story three times and I can’t figure out if the author is trying to be funny or is for real. He’s basically suggesting Bou Faour should go check if the food in Dubai is safe because Myriam Fares got poisoned? Is he seriously doubting the food safety standards in Dubai and praising what we have in Lebanon?
I am not sure if delusional is the right word to describe the author of this article.

How Much Does A Ski Trip Cost In Lebanon?

I was preparing a post on the cost of a ski trip in Lebanon but LBCI’s Lea Fayad beat me to it so I will make use of her report as a reference to my post as it has the Laklouk pricing which I didn’t know. As you can see below, the highest ski ticket during the weekend is at Mzaar (around 47$), followed by the Cedars (40$) and Zaarour (40$) then Laklouk (23$).

Hiba Tawaji Is Not The Only Lebanese At The Voice France

Hiba Tawaji is apparently not the only Lebanese who impressed at the Voice France this year as there’s another 19 year old called Lea Tchéna who also made it to the next round and joined Zazie’s team.
She says she’s half Lebanese at around minute 6. Mika’s reaction is hilarious.

Thanks George!

I Am A Friendly Dog But No One Wants To Adopt Me

BETA‘s shelter for abandoned and abused dogs in Lebanon is now full due to low adoption rates and no kill policy. As a result, they’ve decided to start a new campaign ” The Expats Pets Program ” to help find loving and permanent homes abroad for these animals, while raising awareness on this forced immigration to encourage local adoption.
