Biography of Marwa Rakha

Marwa Rakha poet

I have come a long way from the scared little girl that I once was... I found my passion in writing, my voice in teaching & training, and my strength in marketing... I took off my mask... and I decided to speak up and loud.. as loud as loud could ever be.

This is neither a ruthless attack on men nor a blind defense of women. This is not bitterness released or anger withheld. This is another attempt to figure out the beliefs of the heart and the passions of the mind.

We either choose to play victim and blame men for our messy personal lives, or wallow in self disgust as we take the blame for their shameful actions.

It is time to rise above blame and take control of our actions, reactions, and lives.

When you take a blow do not turn the other cheek; men are not to blame when they use the rights you gave them.

Growing

In the dim light of the room I caught your eyes
wandering in my face;
feeling the fine lines that are bound to sink deeper.
Yes I will have wrinkles.
I am not growing any younger.

Under the faint light our silent still eyes met,
you saw four or five white hairs that sprung on top of my crown.
Why were you surprised?
