An Arab Woman Blues
By Layla Anwar

Westerners and Americans in particular, keep complaining that their lives are so stressful...

They carry their long faces along with their dead end weights, and say " Oh man, the stress..."

They uphold and constantly re-create the same system that makes them stressful...

And if you listen to them close enough, you will realize they are nothing but a bunch of spoiled brats...They are stressed because they have valued "work", above everything else...

They are stressed because they complicate their lives with stupidities and more things to manage...

They are stressed because they have been led to believe that Life owes it to them, that they are entitled simply because they are who they are...

They are stressed because they produce and eat junk. Stop producing the shit and stop eating it and you will not be stressed...

They are stressed because stress becomes their raison d'Ítre, gives them meaning in life...for their lives are so fucking empty of anything substantial...

They RUSH to yoga and meditation classes to de-stress....They work out like addicts at the gym to keep fit so they don't have to be stressed. They run into lousy relationships because they are stressed from being alone...They acquire 20'000 things they do not need, because they are stressed...They work like donkeys so they can make more and buy more so they can become less stressed....

Yet they see none of that....They are just a bunch of whining jerks.

Well I will tell you what real stress is all about you motherfuckers.

Stress is when you have been no with water and no electricity for over 5 years. That is stress.

Stress is when you have no job because some fucking backward retard came and occupied your country, pillaged it and stripped you of your livelihood. That is stress.

Stress is when you run from hospital ward to hospital ward, from prison to prison, from militia to militia looking for your loved one only to recognize them from their teeth fillings in some morgue...That is stress alright.

Stress is when you pack your bags quickly and run to the nearest border only to be asked to return and in the meantime some american western motherfucker has bombed your house into a pile of stones... Yeah, that is stress.

Stress is when you see your family and loved ones dying in front of your eyes and you can't afford to buy them the basic medication to ease their pain...That is stress.

Stress is when your baby girl or baby boy is born looking like fucking Frankenstein, because some american motherfucker who is stressed out bombed your country with D.U.

Stress is when they walk into the middle of the night and you sleep with your clothes on, because you don't want them to see you half naked just in case, when they smash your door down, pull you from your hair or shirt out into the cold and place a sand bang over your fucking head. That is stress.

Stress is when you are a prisoner in your own country by some smelly shit faced, pimpled stinking american who has not even finished high school, and stress is when that same motherfucker rapes you and sodomizes you, tortures you and calls you a dirty Iraqi in your own fucking country...That is stress.

You want to know about stress you pieces of dung, I just gave it to you what stress is all about.

Now, tonight or tomorrow if you collapse from a heart attack because of your earned it you bunch of criminal bastards.

May you be stressed until you fucking croak, croak once and for all.
Layla Anwar , Who am I ? The eternal Question . Have not figured it out fully yet . All you need to know about me is that I am a Middle Easterner, an Arab Woman - into my 40's and old enough to know better. I have no homeland per se. I live in Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Egypt simultaneously ... All the rest is icing on the cake.
