Blog Closed

I would like to announce you that my blog is permanently closed. Thank you for the nearly 20000 people who read my articles from all over the world.

I erased most of my articles permanently, and let only a handful. I had written 177 articles within 8 months.

I would like to thank the G-d of Avraham, Ytshak and Yaacov that I took that decision and invite people from all over the world to get closer to G-d, the only One, source from happiness.

Thank you for my readers.

Samurai That I Drew

I was always fascinated by samurais and by ancient Japan.

Here is my drawing about a samurai modern version.

If someone from Japan can tell me what he/she thinks about it I would be glad.

In The Worst of Times

In the worst of times, I think of Your visitation.

You are good, and just are all Your words and thoughts,

But when desperate days come

And I scan them in vain

For Your saving chivalry,

I think of that time.

Archangels you sent me, and I

I was only a boy in his bed.

They sat across from me and Mikhael said first:

“Hear what God says: I am your Champion!

Cross wild waters and I will be with you.

Let foes flood and you will breast the river.”

Then his companion Gavriel spoke too

And said that he had heard it said to me

In and about Your chariot:

“Walk through fire, you will not be burned,

For I will tell the flame never to touch you.”

This was the message, like a sword put in my hand.

When I see swords now, Lord, I count on Yours.

Shmuel Hanagid (Samuel the Prince)

יום צר ומצוק

יום צר ומצוק אני זוכר בשורתך

!טוב את וצדק במו פיך ובלבבך

אזכור בשורה אשר היא לי לנחם בבוא

:צרה, ואוחיל לישעך ושגובך

תשלח לעבדך, והוא שוכב בערשו והוא

.נער, שרפים לבשרני ברוב טובך

ישבו לנגדי, ומיכאל אזי של : כה

:אמר יי, אשר יריב לך ריבך

,כי תעבר יום במי צרה – אני איתך

,לא ישטפוך נהרות יום קרוב אויבך

גם גבריאל חברו בשרני אשר

:שמע במרכבתך עלי, ובסביבך

,כי תלכה לך במו אש – לא תכוה לך

.אמר ללהב ולא יבער לעולם בך

,זאת הבשורה אשר אתמוך כחרב ביד,

!אראה חרבות ואשען עלי חרבך

Never Give Up The Fight!

I know many people suffer, friends who read me never give up! Never!

That man in the photo has only one leg.

Does he cry on himself, complain, over drink, eat shit, watch porn and get depressed?

NO!

He lost his leg as a soldier in the US Army in combat in Iraq, had to leave his army career because of that.

After a few months deeply depressed he overcame it, and now is working out hard and is an example for thousands on the net.

He didn’t give up and overcame it.

So people kick yourself in the ass, stop crying on yourself and fight!

And also pray G-d there is nothing possible without his help.

Follow his exemple don’t give up the fight!

The Poet Misses His Friends

Loud were their last goodbyes.

Hot is the pang in my heart.

Each time I think of them,

My sleep slips away in the night.

If you don’t think I worry for them

More than they did for me when they left me,

My wet eyes are my witness!

Is there not one good friend among them,

A brotherly soul you could tell

To drop me a line? I don’t even care

If all it says is: “We are well.”

Shmuel Hanagid (Samuel the Prince, you can read another of his poems here and also there.)

תוך לבבי אש יקודים

.תוך לבבי אש יקודים

משאון פרוד ידידים

אשבעה, מדי אדבר

.בם, עדי נשף נדודים

הם עזבוני בחרדת

.לב — ואינם לי חרדים

איך תכחשוני בדברי

!פה — ומי עיני מעידים

דברו נא לי לחבר

,טוב ואח גומל חסדים

יענני אם בשלוה

.הם ושלום מפחדים

I Look Around For My Old Friends

I look around for my old friends

They are gone, the whole generation,

All pushing up daisies.

They did their best, then headed west,

And soon I’ll join the emigration.

Shmuel Hanagid (Samuel the Prince)

אדרש ידידים

אדרש ידידים נולדו

.עמי בדור אחד ואינם

נסעו אלי שחת, וכן

.אסע ואחן עם שכונם

יגעו כמו איגע, וכן

.אעזב כמו עזבו המונם

שמואל הנגיד

War

It starts, war does, as a pretty maid

Whom all men wish to sleep with.

It ends, does war, as a horrid jade,

Her lamed and her maimed left to weep with.

Shmuel Hanagid (Samuel the Prince)

קרב

קרב דומה בראשו אל יפיפה

,אשר כל איש לשחק בה יאוה

וסופו כזקנה המאוסה

.אשר כל שוחרה יבכה וידוה

שמואל הנגיד

Time’s Treachery

And as for Time’s treachery,

treat it with contempt.

Trust not its smiles nor tears.

Today it heals, tomorrow stabs.

Good comes in time but the times are bad.

Samuel hanagid

בזה הזמן בוגד

בזה זמן בוגד ואל תאמין

בשחקו לך או בעת יבכה

,לבעבור כי יום יהי מעלה

.צרי למכתך, ויום יכה

,בטוב, אשר ימיר זמן-רע בטוב

!בטח, ואם יתמהמה – חכה
