The First

Watching my nephew in his Spiderman costume playing in the park near my home, I feel the love of an uncle for my brother’s son. This Spiderman is the first born son in my family. Watching him play and grow, I can imagine what a beautiful man he will become.

In Arabic:
عندما ارى ابن اخي يلعب قرب بيتنا في لباس الرجل العنكبوت، اشعر في حب العم تجاه أبن أخيه. رجل العنكبوت هذا اول الاطفال الذين ولدو في عائلتي. اراه يلعب ويكبر واتصوره عندما يكبر  ويصبح رجلً.
