نبذة من حياتي الطفولية

That is enough, praise is to my Allah Almighty who teaches and protects me from the childhood to my primary school (Babnet), the village now becomes under the sea which is situated in north of Mosul city, that was aftermath the dam which Saddam Hussein built it there in 1980.
 Many of my memories of the childhood period went under the sea as my village went under the sea.
Still I cry and cry for that period, the beautiful period still rings in my mind, still I console my soul to remember that period in the school that was situated one day beside Tigris River which many and many times I have had barefoot walked near to it.
My friends whether boys or girls still I mention, still I keep their figures in my memory.
All of the guideposts and landmarks of the area went under the water, the water that extends to be farther than my village spots.
What shall I say then?
Curse is to whom build the dam.
Curse to whom puts its first scheme there.
Curse to whom plotted to kill my memory.
Curse to the dam that bolted our memories.
Curse to anyone stands yonder as reason.
Let the curse eat them to be never.
Let the dragon eat them even to shatter.
Only the water remains! What shall I do with water?
