About Eileen Manassian

I guess you could say I'm a citizen of the world. I've traveled....and I've lived parts of my life in Iran, Lebanon, the US, and Cyprus. I am proud of my Armenian heritage. I was born in Tehran, Iran and soon after that, my family went to the States for my dad to work on his MA degree and many years later, to work on his Ed.D. I have a lot of the Middle East and the West in me, and at times....I feel confused about my identity. I do, however, cling to my Armenian roots and am outspoken about recognition by the world of the Armenian Genocide that took place over 100 years ago.

Since my parents had no common language, the language spoken in our home was English. Yes, I am most fluent in English, and I think, dream, and converse in that language, though I do speak 5 other languages to varying degrees! :)

I am melancholy/sanguine by nature and feel everything very keenly. My highs are SUPER HIGH...and my lows...SUPER LOW! I guess you could say...I'm INTENSE. I'm passionate about poetry to the point of obsession.

The events that have colored my life are the death of my mother due to MS and the war in Lebanon. As a child, it was hard for me to come to grips with the fact that my mother was ill, and to see her go from being a vibrant, well-loved teacher to a wheelchair bound, isolated woman was a very harrowing experience. I do believe, though, that there is a resurrection day and that, by His grace, I will see my Mama fully of wheelchair, able to sing, laugh, and smile again. The war in Lebanon...bombs landing all around, nights spent in bomb shelters.. has also scarred me to some degree.

What I'm most proud of? That would be my daughter...Shereen Natalie Ghali. She is the light of my life. Her name in Farsi means SWEET! :)

Currently, I teach English at Middle East University in Beirut, Lebanon. Poetry Soup has been a haven for me....most of the time! ;) I've developed amazing friendships here that are very genuine and real. My dream is to one day have my name on a volume of poetry! One can always dream....Thank you for making the effort to get acquainted. God bless!


Happy Birthday, Richard

Dear Soupers,

I know I haven't been on here for FOREVER, but I thought I'd pop in today to post a happy birthday blog for Richard Lamoureux as I've done every year. 

I know Richard is well liked by everyone, as he always leaves gracious and uplifting comments to all.  Richard is one who will always checks on my poetry even when I'm not around, and he invites me to come back and post. I appreciate that. There are only a pecious few who do that, and I'm grateful for true friends.

Wishing you the best life has to offer, Richard. May this year be one filled with every happiness under the sun for you and your beloved family. Keep writing. PS wouldn't be the same without your presence and your presents of poetry.

Happy Birthday!

A Birthday Poem…


You check on me when you don’t see me there

My older writes get posts that show you care

The poems that you pen are rays of light

It’s clear to see why they give such delight


You share your heart, and that’s no easy feat

It takes a strength that does not know defeat

And Humor’s there, it makes its presence known

The prowess of your pen has clearly grown


A friend in need is friend indeed, that’s true

With thankful heart I say: that friend is you

I wish you all that makes your dear heart smile

For this I know, you make life more worthwhile.

The book is Systems Analysis and Design by J Duncan Glover and the poem is on the dedication page in case you ever want to look it up to give it a read. You could google it. I don't even think Richard knows about this one! He read it on the Soup, but doesn't know it's in a book :)

I happen to know y'all have sent many 'friendship appreciation' poems to one another because the sincerity in them stuck in my memory just not exactly where I ran across them. A beautiful poem by a beautiful woman who is a beautiful friend to the beautiful light that is Richard. "Oh, it's all so beautiful" (lyrics from some song.) Happy Birthday, Richard - grow onward, not older. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
