September 7, 2015

I always sleep around 8:30 pm yesterday I had to stay up till around 10 pm; I was talking to a friend the moment I heard the holy air craft I threw the phone and tried to go to sleep. I literally covered my ears and took loud deep breathes in order to not hear it's harmony. Thankfully, I fell asleep before it hit.
The thing here is I am a deep sleeper. I sleep early before they start hitting so I can withstand the troublesome of the mornings air raids. Otherwise it is just too much to bear. Before I fall asleep I always imagine waking up in a blood bath or waking up with no sign of my Mother and two siblings. Or perhaps homeless.
All that being said; I am weary from all of this. I have changed. I am no longer the same person I was before all of this happened. But... I wouldn't change it for the world I feel free. 6 months ago to be Yemeni was to be minuscule, vulnerable & worthless. Now we are freedom, bravery & pride.
