Truly heartfelt poetry centered around three powerful themes of love, death, and life. Written from the perspective of a Syrian American who grew up in Damascus, this book provides an insightful look into the life and culture of that time period. Syria, a country that has been riddled with violence and corruption in recent years, has an entire story waiting to be told by the first hand experiences of Tarif as he grows from a young adult into a man with as much wisdom as compassion. A must read book for anyone interested in Middle Eastern society.

Hearts, Tears, & the Journey of Life is a compilation of poems that seem to be written on the spur of a moment after an event, such as the death of a family member or friend, provoked the author to remember and register. It is also about love and memory in their abstract form. The poetry is lighthearted, spontaneous and at times funny, registering moments of survival, happiness, loneliness and nostalgia.
