by Nayla Al-Khalifa


With all doors open, all needs are met

The home was made to gather

The home was made to flow

The home was a unit

A unit among units

In the thriving ecosystem of family neighborhoods

That runs on love and trust

A system update was made available

A promising standard of living

A faster life

We left our units

And the system error overwhelmed the tradition

We disrupted the ecosystem 

For progress.

Nayla Al-Khalifa’s work focuses on the spirit, soul, home, human condition, afterlife, and questioning the world around us.
