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
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
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
Yet they see none of that....They are just a bunch of whining
Well I will tell you what real stress is all about you
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 stress...you earned it you bunch of criminal
May you be stressed until you fucking croak, croak once and for
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.
