Gallery — Coming of Age

Coming of Age
by Sarah Badr, 2004
100 x 70 cm glossy print


The female composition
of an anguish lets flow
my pain
my fury/
my love/
my joy.

It makes me make this now.

But why do you create? you ask
Why do you breathe? I answer
and ask/
and think/
and decide
that you are blind.

I take scattered pictures
and bring them together
to be molded and merged.

But why? you ask
Why create at all?

In this lies the Beauty of my Truth
and your Truth,
and his/her Truth,
and everybody else’s
For Creation is but a point
in space/
in time/
in mind
needing a foundation
tragic colour
and all-consuming passion.

So look at the shadows
and the lines
and the curves
and you will see the essence
of what it took to make it
And what it takes to make me.

  1. Hi,
    you have great articles in this blog. I congratulate you on it. I have to say that your page with the language information links is one of the best I have seen on the internet and like you say, it’s not even finished, so I bookmarked your page to come back.

    Also, your image selection is amazing. i love your art works.

    enjoy life and thank you.

  2. Joao,
    Thank you so much for your very kind comment. It’s a new year’s resolution of mine to finally finish the language page, so hopefully the next time you visit it will have progressed!

    Thanks again, and all the best to you in 2007!
