This story has always been one of my favorite story in all of the somali stories that mom had told me when I was a little girl, and it's also the most famous one that we even have several plays and movies about it. Great Job. Suul Cowre is also one of my favorite one too and Dhag Dheer. If you know these stories please tell them too. Good Luck with your writting brother. Fartun

Well written story. This is one of the best and most famous stories that had survived due to its richness in quality of wisdom. Thanks Abdullahi and never get tired of writing such beautiful stories. thanks brother. Reer yamyam war ma ka haysaa? Abdi-Noor

The Old Hyena (Short Story) - 3/15/2007 7:25:14 AM
"Treat others the way you would like others to treat you." Loved your hyena story, and these are truly words to live by - for us all.

The Blind ewe (Short Story) - 3/14/2007 10:00:25 PM
Wonderful story worth reproducing in many languages. You have brought great wisdom to this den, Abdullahi

The Blind ewe (Short Story) - 3/10/2007 5:42:23 PM
ABDULLAHI, Wonderful story! I enjoyed reading this so much. I love the lesson: Never give up. I sometimes do give up on things, but this story has given me a valuable lesson. Thank you. Many Blessings, ~Linda

The Blind ewe (Short Story) - 3/10/2007 2:09:42 PM
This is a fine story with a moral. It reminds me of Aesop's fables. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you, Regis

Egal Shidad (Short Story) - 3/7/2007 1:35:40 AM
A fantastic Somali folk story. Please, Abdullahi, write more stories of this kind to make others understand our rich somali culture and tradition. It was my intention to start translating these somali stories into English but I couldn't formulate and shape them out as much beautifully as you do it, brother. I might be good at creating a new story but not good enough to re-write or translate an existing one. I always feel a vacuum in my heart when I see our cultural stories missing from international literary forums such as the AD while we have plenty of literature giants and story tellers around the world. Thanks brother and keep up the good work

Traditional Artifacts (Article) - 8/28/2007 5:47:51 PM
Excellent Article Very interesting views on tradition,culture Enjoyed reading this very interesting Article I too am proud of your brother!! Love Peace and Hugssss to you....Morning Star

Traditional Artifacts (Article) - 3/7/2007 10:32:09 AM
Fantastic article with lots of great sentiments. I am proud of you brother for supporting people who promote their own culture in the midst of advanced social setting. Not long ago I participated in a ceremony organized by intellectuals and poets in Mogadishu aimed at the promotion of culture with especial emphasis on the strengthening the expansion of reading and writing the mother tongue. My greetings to Mr. Dirie and please say him salama caleykum on my behalf. Well done Abdulahi

Parent-child Communication (Poetry) - 8/30/2008 11:01:34 PM
Dearest Jibril, I trust your stories would have been wonderfully received in the Family Engagement training! Fabulous examples of why and how to achieve positive parent/child communication to make a smarter child, a proud parent and coherent family. Thank you dearly for sharing... Saving to library! Love and gratitude, Suzie :-D

Thank you for such reminder ..this remind me of rap some how ...loved it

MALNUTRITION (Poetry) - 3/7/2008 11:04:17 AM
Nice writing...I am part of the working poor and my nutrition is not always good because I have to choose between bills, medication or healthy food. We must all share the wealth of food so that no man goes to bed hungry.

Disability is not Inability (Poetry) - 3/7/2008 10:52:23 AM
I've worked with the disabled for many years and they are "able" to do many things... The US is still very "prejudiced" when it comes to disablility in the workplace and in general...but they have made laws making it more difficult for people to outright deny you a chance to work. I pray that one day all nations will quit being mean to people who are different. Thanks for such an eye-opening poem.

Disability is not Inability (Poetry) - 1/19/2008 11:28:31 AM
What can anyone add here? I hope somali men are reading this. And Allah is able to do all things. Tears for Somalia. Well done, brother! Safi

Test of Time (Poetry) - 1/16/2008 6:00:50 PM
An astute observation of the many phases we all experience of change in this thing we call life. Keep up the good work.

Disability is not Inability (Poetry) - 12/26/2007 1:12:48 PM
Great Job, I love this one. As Abdi-Noor said "This must be hanged on the walls of all somali offices to make them aware that disability is not inability." I agree with him and I will start putting this on the Wall of my Office. Thank You Abdillahi for sharing this with us. Fartun!

Poetry (Poetry) - 12/20/2007 10:10:59 PM
few poets are examples of anything except being poets ...

Poetry (Poetry) - 12/20/2007 4:17:18 PM
Interesting. I agree with your interpretation, although, as Stan and Reg wrote, when a poet writes, the writing may be so strong and inspired that it transcends what he/she is able to do in real life. A doctor cures people, but this doesn't mean he/she is never ill. And I would say fortunately, as personally, I don't think I would trust a doctor or a poet who isn't human. I have seen so-called poetry from very grandiloquent people - we have at least one on this site - but what's the interest of reading pieces written by "authors" who think they are God? Thank you for making us think. Axilea

Some of us have received gifts in other areas. It's OK to accept our individual blessings and share the finished products.

Poetry (Poetry) - 12/19/2007 2:29:55 PM
to me it means that we may utter words of brillance,that came out through us,but that we may not take full credit,or even be aware of the full meaning or impact of what we said, had any signifance,becaus it is bigger that us,not always but sometimes I think that may happen, stan

Poetry (Poetry) - 12/19/2007 12:56:57 PM
To me it means that I may speak better than I act. Anyway, you provide substance for thought and I thank you. Love and peace, Regis

Shabelle (Poetry) - 10/13/2007 12:51:47 AM
Thanks for being a voice for freedom and democracy. Shabelle Radio came on air after the TFG was accused worldwide by harrasing media institutions and this poem may have played a major role to re-open Shabelle. Thanks dear brothr and ciid wanaagsan to you. Abdi-Noor

Shabelle (Poetry) - 9/24/2007 4:07:36 PM
Government's afraid to have freedom - close the mouthpiece in hopes that people will not speakin and listening. This is tragic, Kathy

War Against My Brother (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 11:38:19 AM
You have defined the effects of tribalism with this short poem whereas it would take years for researchers to dig into the fathomless pits of the somali tragedy to come up with a conclusion on the horrors of the somali civil war. Thanks brother

War Against My Brother (Poetry) - 7/13/2007 8:19:46 AM
Truth in succinct lines, Abdi-Noor, dysfunctional at best. What is mankind doing? We're wiping out our own brothers and sisters in the name of love; we're driving creatures to extinction; what does man want? To be the last survivor on the planet? Such a lonely existance...powerfully penned heartbreak. (((HUGS))), love and prayer, Karla.

War Against My Brother (Poetry) - 7/12/2007 9:29:04 PM
"War Against My Brother" shows the picture of the indifference of all FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL. THE LORDS OF INDUSTRIAL WARS; HUMAN DEGRADATION, STARVATION AND SLAVERY. Keep ringing the bells of JUSTICE, Poet! In admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

War Against My Brother (Poetry) - 7/12/2007 8:16:22 PM

very well stated poem on peace and balanced government.

Somali Social Policy (Poetry) - 6/30/2007 9:04:21 PM
Sounds like the plan you outline would go a very long way toward easing the suffering and stopping the vicious circle of destruction and inequity. I hope and pray that things move in that direction. The sooner and better! Somalians do not deserve to be treated this way!! Thank you for keeping their plight from disappearing into the maw of indifference, or in some cases, outright hostility. Bless you, 'Pea' <3

Wise lines of a profound message. In respect and admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Somali Social Policy (Poetry) - 6/27/2007 5:23:19 PM
The present situation of Somalia is the JOINT-picture of the FIVE PERMANENT LORDS OF THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL, which keeps playing with Somalia since its creation; and the shameful omission of the religious groups. (Seventy percent.) "Somali Social Policy" is a call to good sense and JUSTICE. I hope that the leaders that control seventy-five percent of the SOULS in Somalia decide to say YES to Humanity and JUSTICE. In respect, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Somali Social Policy (Poetry) - 6/23/2007 12:43:14 PM

Somali Social Policy (Poetry) - 6/15/2007 9:12:11 AM
From individual to community to national level is the basis of constructing Pyramidal style of adminstration in which the the power is concentrated in the bottom while ceremonial authority rests at the apex. Thanks Abdullahi for your deep concern and insight to think of your motherland in a more ethical and intellectual way. People like you make the best of leaders in the world. Thanks

Somali Social Policy (Poetry) - 6/10/2007 11:03:49 PM
Somalia, a land of unarmed gentle people, being oppressed by armed thugs in love with their nome-de-guerre War Lords, a disgusting combination of unlimited greed, grotesque abuse of power and a religion so twisted and perverted by a few that not even Allah wants to have anything with them to do. But His children suffer as they oppressors thrive. Well penned, your drop of water will one day go through the stone. Georg

Busy is Life (Poetry) - 5/31/2007 6:44:02 AM
Lately I've been feeling as you describe, but now each morning I tell myself, "I can do all things through Christ which strengths me." It works! May you be filled with His strength, too, as you face your many busy days. Peace and love Lena

A somali man in America (Poetry) - 5/24/2007 12:18:40 PM
I love the wisdom and humility in this. And appreciate the openness with which these views have been assimilated - and that from a different culture from across continents and races. It is a wonderful example of what it means to learn from each other, to learn from nature and to learn from our social and commercial orders in life. And the women... well, guess that's up for you men to decide! But it's interesting that in all cultures at all times, these three are absorbing features of the ways in which we shape our lives and thinking. Bless you and thank you. This was intriguing. TY Kate xx

A somali man in America (Poetry) - 5/17/2007 7:57:39 PM
Each of the three can change like the wind. Weather takes a little getting used to, but after a while it will be second hand. You have penned this one in such a sincere way. Work, well sometimes it changes, sometimes you change. different than men, always changing their minds....... Good write, enjoyed reading! Be safe, Karen

A somali man in America (Poetry) - 5/17/2007 1:24:44 PM
Abdullahi, And the weather is getting all the more unpredictable. Even in places used to one way, patterns are changing and the atmosphere in upheaval: as they say here in Texas, if you don't like the weather, wait a minute. :) As for work and women, you've got it spot on! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

A somali man in America (Poetry) - 5/17/2007 11:25:51 AM
It doesn't matter where in the U.S. you travel The water has been very unpredictable This year In my hometown the day beguines So beautiful and about 3to 4 ours later We get severe warnings of thunderstorms and Tornado warnings Yes I do agreed with you and the other two Work can be slow and it is very dangers at times!

A somali man in America (Poetry) - 5/17/2007 9:42:39 AM
It probably doesn't matter where in the vast U.S. you travel, my friend, the weather can truly change quite abruptly in only a matter of minutes. As for the other two, I can only say, Best of Luck!

Allah, my God (Poetry) - 5/15/2007 1:37:07 AM
That is great. We expect more from you to enlight those who lack the basic understanding of Islam as well as those who destroy life in the name of Islam. Wonderful write

Thank you Abdullahi, jazaakkallahu khyran! Safi

Allah, my God (Poetry) - 5/12/2007 2:14:52 AM
Taking Hiss name in vain is penalized, doing atrocities in His name shouldn't it not be tolerated and be penalized by those practicing His words? One can't go to Mecca to purify himself and afterwards deep the hands in the innocents blood. One can't, on His name, destroy each others Mosques. Allah is great, man don't deserve Him. Georg

Allah, my God (Poetry) - 5/11/2007 10:53:03 PM
It is very disheartening when some distort the teaching of their God and belief. If only we could all learn to respect each other and each others religions, perhaps we would have peace. Be safe, Karen

Allah, my God (Poetry) - 5/11/2007 7:47:26 PM
Thank you for sharing this truth, Jibril. If only the trouble makers of the world, didn't distort truth it would be a better world, for all of us! Love, Eileen

Abdullahi, Yes, it seems every day is a crazy world these day. Just keep the faith and keep going strong. I love your poetry. Many blessings, ~Linda

Busy is Life (Poetry) - 4/25/2007 11:34:06 PM
Abdullahi, I do understand your predicament, and I am only a housewife with grown up children:) This is one of the signs heralding the Hour. There is not enough time to go around. In other words the blessings are removed from the time. P.S. How about getting rid of the line <Simply time cannot be broken> It's slowing down the poem down. Safi

Busy is Life (Poetry) - 4/25/2007 9:27:09 PM
You are such a tough guy, Abdullahi with great and exceptional abilities to work and write under an extremely tight schedule. I share these abilities with you as I work and write in a situation where there is no peace and no authority to govern the nation in full capacity. Yet I can't stop working as if I am in safe and peaceful situation

marvelous tribute to those who translate words into thoughts and ideas ...

The Interpreter (Poetry) - 4/23/2007 9:31:54 PM
A true masterpiece, written from your heart. Through peace, love communication and understanding the world will be a better place. Thank You! Be safe, Karen

The Interpreter (Poetry) - 4/23/2007 9:18:20 PM
What a splendid tribute to all who make it easier for others to learn and communicate, including yourself Jibril! You are a sweetman to recognize your peers in this way. Love, Eileen

The Interpreter (Poetry) - 4/23/2007 11:37:07 AM
Marvelous tribute to all interpreters world-wide. I believe that Somalis make the best interpreters in the world. Back in the early nineties I remember having 30,000 troops in somalia who came from different countries and speaking different languages. Can you imagine that every contingent had its own interpreter recruited from within Somalia. I was once amazed by the brilliance of a chap who interpreted for the Turkish military in somalia. I asked him how he had learned Turkish and he replied" I was imprisoned in Istanbul for three months and learned Turkish in the jail" There were also many other somali interpreters who spoke Belgian, Czech, Urdu etc. Wonderful. I like Somalis though we are in many ways so destructive.

The Interpreter (Poetry) - 4/23/2007 6:39:51 AM
The women and children of your wartorn nation have an ally in you, and we do too with your moving, meanigful poetry. God bless you, dear friend; know you are in my prayers! Stay safe! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :D My daddy in Ohio speaks ten languages: grew up speaking English, Hungarian, Polish, Russian, and Czech, also speaks Japanese, Pakistani, Greek, Chinese (some), and one more I can't remember at this time. *grins* He's very good with languages; always has been. My daddy may have never graduated from high school, but he is a very smart man. :)

The Interpreter (Poetry) - 4/23/2007 5:56:58 AM
Because of you children and families from all walks of life are able to have a voice! That is truly a marvelous thing, and helping others in such a way is truly a worthly calling.

A tribute, of any greatness, to those dedicated to build bridges with communication always will be not enough compared with the small miracles as they make us understand the words of refugee childrens when they try to say to us about their hunger. With all my admiration for the Interpreters devotion. Georg E. Mateos

The Interpreter (Poetry) - 4/23/2007 1:46:45 AM
"THE INTERPRETER" can also build a Babel tower ~ if mis-interpretation occurs by accident ~ or through conspiracy... WHICH is not what the Poet meant in his: "The Interpreter" ~ subjects are the sworn officers ~ dedicated to serve and promote UNDERSATNDING among Mankind. Blessed are the ones that show the greatness of their fellowmen. In gratitude and admiration, I salute You, Poet. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Abdullahi, A shining tribute to those who serve others, as the go-between. Unfortunately, I speak only bits and pieces of around eight languages, enough to start conversations, but not finish them! Well done, my (((friend))). Asante sana. :) (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

A wise thought on responsibility in sharing space and common goods. This poem, "Poets of Peace" delivers a profound message. I have enjoyed the reading of this composition that bears the aroma of wisdom. In admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

To some, the truth tastes bitter because they are accustomed to the sweet taste of lies. I prefer my coffee black, no sugar. When one put aditives in anything, love, friendship, truth... A poem well done. Georg

We write of peace because we have hope. We can always hope. Wonderful write, Abdullahi; was just wondering about you! Glad you are okay! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :)

Poets of Peace (Poetry) - 4/18/2007 9:21:50 AM
Abdullahi, We write of peace because in the real world, it isn't so. We write of beauty, because in the real world, it isn't so. We write of hope, because in the real world, it seems it's gone ... we can only write, and hope--excellent thoughts here. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 4/10/2007 7:25:36 AM
Abdillahi, in my opinion if Somalis were honest, united or practical they could use this weak governemnt as a stepping stone. Let's not forget this is only an interim government. Your cries are heard but i think there is more to what's happening in Mogadishu than meets the eye. Great poem! Keep up. your ukhti Safi

Death Trap (Poetry) - 4/5/2007 2:43:13 PM
I feel your pain my good poet, you are a positive good brother. I too, feel for your country, I can't stand seeing the little children suffering. But you know something, it's evil men and money that keeps this going on. There are certain elements in this country and some others that do not want to see a united africa. Unity means an end to ripping off the riches of a strong black country. It's easier to conquer when a country is kept in fear and turmoil. the movie Blood Diamond told part of this story. All down through the ages africa has been exploited and used. It will only end when strong africans and others in the world stand up against the thugs, black and white

Death Trap (Poetry) - 4/3/2007 9:56:09 PM

Those that received Nobel Prize for Peace... (U.N. Members) like Mr. Former Secretary, and all the FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF UN SECURITY COUNCIL ~ the industrial war LORDS. I gues that the average adult person of this planet knows the history. No God or faked prophet can do anything, but the people can. WHY IS THAT THAT SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THAT COUNTRY IS MUSLIM ~ THREE TO ONE ~ GREAT MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE, can't say NO to those criminals? I question the responsibility of VATICAN, CANTERBURY, MUSLIM LEADERS, AND THE FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL. I ALSO QUESTION THEIR DIGNITY AND HUMANITY. Justice is the only way. Stand up and say NO to those criminals. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Only totally crazy people thinks that war is the solution. Only those that had abandoned his God's teaching resort to the slaughter of innocents. War is an aberration that have no place in the life of intelligent men My heart aches with yours. Salam Aleikum Georg

Death Trap (Poetry) - 4/3/2007 12:01:09 AM
What a sad poem! Your voice is a power for the powerless. Please raise it till those who live behind sound-proof doors hear it. Thanks Abdullahi for the message. You are a real activist of peace

Death Trap (Poetry) - 4/2/2007 11:19:33 PM
Political manipulation of God for greed and power are the cause. God won't stop this, only your people can. Regretably, international aid has proven over and over to be a useless bandaid that can't cover a much deeper wound. Power is continually and willfully given over by the people to warlords and profiteers of thier own doom. Until the people organize and empower themselves against tyranny this 'genocide' or 'cleansing' is doomed to repeat itself...How long has it been going on now???!!! It's a sad situation that many, including myself, would like to end now and forever.

Death Trap (Poetry) - 4/2/2007 10:59:58 PM
Dearest Abdullahi Our love and hearts go to you and your countrypeople. It is a crime such atrocities are happening when the majority of the Western world live in apparent freedom. All freedom is linked and if you haven't got it, neither have we. Humans are One ... when will we know: to hurt another is to hurt oneself. Those massacrers must be so full of self-hatred. And many of us have the heedlessness of complacency, as this goes on around the world, and in your very own home. Love to you, deeply. Be safe as you can, and know you have many supporters. Suzie

Death Trap (Poetry) - 4/2/2007 10:54:01 PM
I am wiping tears from my eyes as I write this. I visited a few Somali news web pages. What I saw was ver sad and heart breaking.

Thank you all of you, sisters and brothers. Abdullahi

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 3:08:58 PM
STOP!! Your couplets ring out with sobering fact and compelling exhortation, Abdullahi, and I admire both your strength and grace in putting your case forward. I especially find memorable your closing lines. Do unto others what you would have others do unto you are words which spring to mind. Your ways are the ways of peace, both externally and of the mind and heart. Bless you and thank you for this. Kate x

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/21/2007 4:47:54 PM
i agree with your sentiments in this poem ... these abuses have been going down since man came into being ... historically, abuse seems to be inherent in human nature and will continue to thrive until mankind evolves both intellectually, spiritually and emotionally ... poets like you help to move the process along more expeditiously ...

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/21/2007 12:20:48 AM
Great poem of pain, love, courage and hope. you are a voice for those whose voice is rarely heard and you stand up to defend the rights of minorities world-wide. This is a sign of your conviction to protect the rights of the minorities and the disadvantaged groups of the society who deserve to enjoy equal rights with the rest of the people. Thanks brother for bringing this problem to our attention and thanks for the message. Your brother Abdi-Noor

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 2:20:56 PM
Thank you Abdullahi! We should all feel as you do and make our wishes known to our leaders! Eileen

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 8:40:30 AM
I echo the sentiments in this succinct poem. However, it is ironic that some of the 'minorities' who were designated victim status by academics have themselves become tyrannies of a sociological kind. Here in the UK for example, we have the tyranny of some animial 'rights'' campaigners, anti-smoking lobby, anti-obese (relatively defined) lobby, disability activists,and 'green' activists etc etc etc. Itallian communist, Gramsci's novel idea of treating all minorities including the majority on equal terms has led to the absurdity of a core minority (even one indivudual e.g. complaining about smoking in a Tom and Jerry cartoon which led to the scene being deleted) usurping the rights of the majority (all the other minorities included). Yes, Abdullahi, we are all for helping the weak but we must guard against those who take advantage of the weak for their own unrepresentive ideological ends. Regards Daibhidh

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 8:35:29 AM

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 5:17:10 AM
Abdullahi, <Applause!> This is a much needed poem and I thank you for writing it. I also write for the abused. There is no excuse, Abdullahi. The elderly and children of the world should not live in fear. Children should be happy , playing, laughing, not hiding in closets in fear of their next beating. Thank you so much for speaking up for the ones who don't have a voice...the abused. OUTSTANDING poem! God bless you for this write. Many Blessings, ~Linda

Abuse (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 3:08:40 AM

This is an unforgivable situation...In our world today, not one should go hungry!

You make so very valid points here, Abdullahi. There is enough to feed every person on this planet; sadly, it is our "systems" that prevent this. Love and peace to you, Regis

MALNUTRITION (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 8:59:15 AM
Abdullahi~ Interesting thought provoker you have penned here. I know this well; we are poor ourselves: I am living on nothing; Karla only gets a pittance of money every month, not making nearly as much as she should. Sad, sad write; thank you. (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :(

MALNUTRITION (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 8:12:13 AM
Abdullahi, Thought provoking observations you make; I know this all too well: living on less than poverty levels, I can't afford to eat nutritiously. What food after paying the light bill?? Have to eat starchy food, to keep me filled...which bulks me with layers of fat. Sad...very well penned; thank you! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

MALNUTRITION (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 7:58:51 AM
Most interesting observations, Abdullahi. And I wish every living soul on earth had just the right nutrition to sustain life.

MALNUTRITION (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 7:40:21 AM

Terror for the Terrorist! (Poetry) - 3/14/2007 9:59:48 PM
Abdullah, This is one powerful poem; tells a sad, sobering story of how the terroristic mind operates. Scary and sad to think they use violence or kill innocents to try to drive their point across. Doesn't make any sense whatsoever; God help us.... Very well done, my (((New Somali friend and brother)))! Keep on writing for change; hopefully someone will listen before it is too late! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <

Terror for the Terrorist! (Poetry) - 3/14/2007 7:38:21 AM
Abdullahi, Good morning. Terrorists rule by using fear; they know know better. You continue, as does Abdi-Noor Mohamed, to be the greatest hope for peace--for your nation, for the world. Continue to educate and save people's lives. Well done! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 9:51:16 AM
What a marvelous poem you have penned, Abdullahi! You refreshed my mind with the fading memoirs of the milk way story which my grandma used to tell me before I went to bed. Of course evil breeds evil and that is why we have a spate of horror from time to time. When the beautiful ones are born (or already born) this cycle shall be broken and Somalia/somalis shall not anymore be an endangered species

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 3/12/2007 9:10:39 PM
This no person should be subjected to. An injustice when the people suffer at the hands of a person in power. Where are all those who preach peace around the world when they are truely needed. Why do all the world leaders who have the power to stop this, just sitting on their hands? I pray for you and all the Somali people.I pray for all who live under horrid contitions. Be safe, Karen

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 3/12/2007 3:07:02 PM
Abdullahi, it is very sad what is happeniong in Somalia. As I tell Abdi Noor, I pray that there will soon be changes for the better. However, this world is in a state of rebellion and we must keep praying and hoping For Creator's intervention. An excellent write thank you for sharing your info about the galaxies. Very interesting.

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 3/12/2007 9:19:19 AM
First... this is an outstanding story-poem on social ANARCHY and history of Man's wrongdoing. "Endangered Species" makes me question the usefulness of The Permanent and The International Courts of JUSTICE; the dignity and functions of The United Nations and its FIVE PERMANENT LORDS OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL, and most of all, THE SERVICES, THE DIGNITY AND MORALITY OF THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF SOMALIA, once they control most of the country's population. In admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 3/12/2007 9:14:30 AM
Thank you for this lesson, Abdullalhi. Love and peace to you, Regis

Endangered Species (Poetry) - 3/12/2007 7:31:33 AM
Abdullahi, I hate to hear of the warring factions that threaten Somolia's future: their children. Instead of fighting, why aren't they educating them? A thought provoking, poignant read; you and Abdi-Noor and Safi Abdi are Somalia's hope for the children, and for peace. Keep writing! (((HUGS))) and love, and prayer, Karla.

Test of Time (Poetry) - 3/11/2007 10:34:56 PM

Test of Time (Poetry) - 3/11/2007 7:04:57 AM
Absolutely marvelous! Bravo my brother! Things do change and reading the Quran and contemplating the holy verses I'm inclined to keep the faith even in the darkest hour. Our Maker says what means : "Or (take) the similitude of one who passed by a hamlet, all in ruins to its roofs. He said: "Oh! how shall Allah bring it (ever) to life, after (this) its death?" but Allah caused him to die for a hundred years, then raised him up (again). He said: "How long didst thou tarry (thus)?" He said: (Perhaps) a day or part of a day." He said: "Nay, thou hast tarried thus a hundred years; but look at thy food and thy drink; they show no signs of age; and look at thy donkey: And that We may make of thee a sign unto the people, Look further at the bones, how We bring them together and clothe them with flesh." When this was shown clearly to him, he said: "I know that Allah hath power over all things." ( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #259) Again, thanks! Safi

Thank you so much for this heartwarming description of our brother. He indeed is what you said: living among the wrong people. Abdinoor is a hero, and I'd vote for him anytime. WE need people like him to come forward and save Somalis from themselves. Well done, Abdullahi and welcome to Authorsden! This is a good place to learn and grow, Shukran!

ABDULLAHI, Outstanding poetry about the changes we see in our lives. I hope time will change for the Somalia people, and things will improve greatly for them. My prayers are with them. Excellent poetry, my friend. Many Blessings, ~Linda

Change is an ingredient of life For a reason it is element of life How true, and we should all strive to accept change, and make it better, whenever we possibly can.

I really like this. I believe everything happens for a reason and that there is always hope for us all as God is with us always. We must as you say in the poem remain positive and smiles are so important they say more than any words.

"Test of Time" a mingling of subjects on the human and Nature's expression of faces. A poetic vessel of emotions and imagery... An outstanding poem. I wish the people of of Somalia say "NO" to cruelty NOW! As long as the people of Somalia allow; time, (READ: THE THIEVES) will keep them on starvation... PASSIVE OMISSION IS THE NAME and the cause of Somalia's DIGNITY'S DEGRADING. Never rest Your pen, Poet. In reverent admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Abdullah, As a disabled person myself, I wonder where the opportunities are: discrimination is commonplace; we are left to fend for ourselves or live on government handouts that do not provide a living wage. I know. A powerful indictment for change, for both our nations. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Truly shameful how we very often treat our fellow human beings. And although the U.S. may be ahead of Somalia in this regard, we, too, have a very long way to go.

ABDULLAHI , Thanks for this eye opener. No one should be shunned because of disability. People should have more compassion for the disabled. One day they could be walking in their shoes. Excellent! Many blessings, ~Linda

This myust be hanged on the walls of all somali offices to make them aware that disability is not inability. In our country they call the man without a leg "Lugeey" meaning the legless and if he is missing one of his eyes of arms they call him "Ileey or gacameey" respectively. And usually they are discriminated in the employment sector and if at all they are employed they don't get the necessary benefits to sustain a normal happy life. Thanks Abdullahi I especially like the comparisons you have made between Somalia and America in terms of disabled people and how people treat them in their respective countries. Please keep these comparisons coming because we learn a lesson from the experiences of other nations which could be relicated into our local systems and ways of life. Abdi-Noor

"Disability is not Inability" depicts the face of a country whose population's majority is MUSLIM, the government is one hundred percent Muslim... Thank You for sharing this reality titled, "Disability is not Inability". Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU
