A Syrian American doctor from Washington State, Dr. Majd Isreb, announces the release of his much-anticipated e-book, Fayha Manuscripts, Poems From Syria with Love. The beautiful poetry book is a bilingual portrayal of life’s contradictions in love of a country, family and one another. It depicts the struggles of a Syrian American who is witnessing the total destruction of his homeland and being unable to change the course.
[I stopped by your window but I didn’t recognize you
We were both strangers
Syria, my love, where are you?
I miss the memories and the time I spent on your roads and alleys
But we are moving in opposite ways
I am still running and when I have the chance to look back
I see the monsters dragging you in the horizon far far away
Time cannot bring back the memories
It can only bring us further apart!]
“This collection of poems began a few years ago with flowing thoughts. My initial observations were related to my lifelong journey as a Syrian American. However, over the past few years with the recent developments in my homeland, I found myself writing more and more about these heartbreaking events. Fayha is an old name for Damascus, the city were I was born. It is where I spent my childhood and went to medical school. It is the city that made me who I am today,” said Dr. Isreb.
Many have already downloaded the e-book. Dr. Isreb is committing fifty percent of the proceeds to support the SAMS Foundation, a charity organization providing lifesaving medical services for those affected by the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time. “It’s wonderful! Majd Isreb is very talented and his poetry is amazing!” said one of the readers.
