Generating a fearless and humanising narrative on Palestine!

A new drawing speaks for me

When I’m going through some difficulties, I find it hard to put the right words together to describe how I’m feeling about it. So I made this drawing to speak for me. Every one of you can look at it as you prefer. If I can choose a name for this drawing, it would be “A Complete Mess”.

I believe if we didn’t cry, we wouldn’t know how laughter tastes and if we didn’t feel lonely, we would never appreciate friendship, and if we didn’t lack anything, we would never realize the blessings we have.

Therefore, I’m trying to stay positive and thankful. I hope that these difficulties will end up for the best. If it doesn’t, it will at least help me discover myself more. So I hope that these obstacles will end up creating a better person out of me. I pray for everyone who is feeling like they are living in a mess to find a way to fix it. And I pray that I’ll manage to find the strength inside me to pass through these difficulties and become stronger.

Hope you like it.
With love!

  1. My heart goes out to you and your people Shahd. So many beautiful and talented people denied the rights so many others take for granted. One thing I see in your pic looks like a four leaf clover, an Irish symbol of luck. I hope to visit you and all my friends in Gaza and I will bring all the luck & love of Ireland with me. Know that I, like so many others, will not stop working until you and all Palestinians get the freedom and peace you so richly deserve.

  2. Shahd, Thank you for your inspirational and educational work of art. Your emotion and grace are pillars that strengthen us, the activists on the other side of the world to continue with Palestie in spirit. Everyday we share your suffering, your tears, your pain and your courage as you face the adversities of the occupation. We hope soon to share your joy in freedom! We pray soon all oppression will end and the enduring beauty of Palestine will shine brighter and stronger than ever to last for all eternity! We love you…in Colorado USA! In solidarity till the end of the occupation! Long Live Palestine! Long Live Gaza!
