Inner Struggles

‘Friends’ treat me like I have no skills cause they fear being failures themselves. I treat myself like I have no skills cause I am my only reinforcement. My loved ones are uncertain and insecure as well, without the ability to give me unconditional faith. I myself am in struggle and wonder, searching for my personal idea of happiness, though the world and this fear of mine try to strip it from me. They together try to strip me from me — and they often win.

In an interview with RT Syrian President Bashar al-Assad denied allegations of a full fledged Syrian civil war. There could be no functioning state if this was a full fledged civil war, he argues. Whether this is accurate or not, no one can be fully sure, nor about the fate of Syria.

How many more people must die? How much longer must Syrians, and the rest of the Arab world, including Palestinians, suffer from political unrest and injustice?
