By Hamza Matar

Poetry, Fantasy, Psychology & philosophy, Art & photography | Paperback, eBook

Psychosis... In 2010 I decided to face my mental illness and start some treatment. For the next three years I traveled a long, arduous road to some kind of balance, some form of recovery. I had to wrap my mind around the reality what I would be on some kind of drug for this condition, for the rest of my life. But I’m still here, fighting for my life! It is a long fight, and I promise to cheat death every way possible, and win with life in every way possible. I promise to be an example for drug addicts and psychosis patients. There is hope. We must stay strong. Medicine and writing give me balance, give me reason, and instill in me an abundance of hope. Yet the struggle continues.

Born in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, Hamza Matar is of Palestinian and Egyptian origins. Growing up, Hamza immersed himself in classical literature, The Bible, and the Quran. At the age of 18, Hamza moved to Cairo, Egypt to begin his college studies. Battling through drug addiction and his diagnosis of Psychosis, Hamza will soon graduate in the field of dentistry. His love for poetry and prose continues to this day.
