Behind ‘Artificial life’

 

‘Artificial Life’, written by Zeinab Arjah.

 

Writing ‘Artificial life’ has definitely been one of the greatest things I’ve done over the past few years and it’s such a great pleasure to share it with you all. I have chosen to write something explicit in hopes you have more of an understanding about me. If you haven’t yet checked out my previous posts on this website then feel free to at any time!

I will start uploading videos in the middle of next year but just before i do so, i want you all to ask me questions on this website rather than my Instagram or snapchat because it’s much easier to respond here, I’ve chosen this platform to connect with my supporters and also it’ll leave me with something to talk/record about! So please don’t hesitate typing out your questions down in the comments section below.

Thank you all once again for the continuous support please note that i am so grateful and appreciative of it. Enjoy!

Yes, It was very uncomfortable growing up with pain in my eyes and sorrow in my heart however, it only made me even more humble. I always understood that others had it worse but nothing could sugar coat the way i felt. I was young but the cruelty of society taught me a big lesson and I thank God for it.

As a young teenage girl who has not only been bullied into silence but also watched both parents part away from love, i was constantly fighting a battle between myself and I. Regardless of how inhumanity shred it’s way skin deep while i was trying to win myself back, I definitely don’t regret putting up a fight because all that I’ve endured has allowed me to develop into a wise enough young lady that is so understanding of others emotions and I couldn’t have wanted it any other way.

After watching a series of contradicting years, the younger me only ever wished that someday i own a bigger mirror in order to see more of me rather than already having owned such a small mirror that only reflected the pain of my gloomy eyes. I always cared way too much about others who didn’t about me to the point achieving goals was the most i craved. It is when I mended fences, became friends with myself again and turned selfish for my own sanity others didn’t like it.

When i came to an agreement with pen and paper, they let me depend on them to express my feelings rather than letting my vocabulary eat me up. So i could say that writing has been one of the finest way to express my emotions and publishing a book is the cherry on top.

I taught myself how to see more of life using the same small mirror i had and now i sleep comfortably knowing I achieved the goals I’ve set, prospered by my positive vibe and affirm mindset.

I still remember the day wanting to publish my very own book worldwide was just a thought, and now that’s the reality I wake up to.

I’m underestimated and that’s just the way I like it. For me life began as soon as I was blessed with people who made me feel nothing less than immense obscurity. I call it a blessing because all that I’ve endured made me the person I am today; stronger, wiser and most of them all successful. So I would be lying if I said that these battle scars weren’t worth the fight, because they absolutely are.

I’ve always been a writer however, didn’t pick up on it until two years ago (age fifteen) although I do remember the first proper poem I wrote as a ten year old called ‘Fascination’; It isn’t the best of poems considering i was really young but that is what started me off and God knows how grateful i am for it. Unfortunately it won’t be featured in my book ‘Artificial Life’ ; however it’ll be posted below.

~ Fascination –

I look at the moon,

And straight away,

I put my head down and say,

That this is the way to the end of my soul thats whats called..

Living through the breeze i cry,

Like my tears to the sky,

I say to my self that its not true living through hard times.. .

The reason why I can still remember that particular poem is because on that night before I composed it, my heart was filled with grief, but after my eyes came in contact with the moon, everything changed. From then, I claimed the moon. You will find that I refer quite a lot to the moon in my poetry or perhaps compare someone to it (usually a loved one).

I would also like to thank my father, mother and brother for their full support.

My book ‘Artificial Life’ is written solely with love, passion and realism.

Take your time reading my poems peacefully, let the words take control of your mind and heart.
