If Dubai was a Lady

Dubai is a fast paced, ambitious and relatively young city that despite its geographical constraints has been making waves in the international arena. Who would have thought that a desert city would become one of the top tourist attractions in the world? Dubai has managed to achieve that and in the process bagged many accolades such as having the world's tallest building 'The Burj Khalifa', the world's largest shopping mall 'The Dubai Mall' along with the world's largest indoor theme park, 'The IMG World of Adventures' to name just a few.




Dubai has a unique spirit and energy that captivates the imagination. I feel privileged to call it home for more than five years now Alhamdulilah. Being the poet that I am, Dubai's remarkable persona inspired me to ponder about how I would describe Dubai had it been a lady.


If Dubai was a Lady,
She would stand out from the crowd.
With her traditional features,
Draped in contemporary haute couture.

If Dubai was a Lady,
She would be a gadget girl,
One who loves new technology,
And delights in playing with cutting edge innovation.

If Dubai was a lady,
She would be modern, glamorous and ambitious,
She would have a multifaceted personality,
Colors of the many nationalities that made her.

She would be forever evolving,
Improving and working on herself, 
Aware of her weaknesses, 
Applying technology and knowledge to progress.

If Dubai was a lady,
She would be an enchantress,
Gloriously confident in vibrant attire.
Mesmerizing people with her eclectic ideas.

She would be feminine yet the epitome of strength,
Showing the world just how,
To walk in high heels over sand,
And overcome limitations using determination.

If Dubai was a lady,
She would be a visionary,
Always seeing the bigger picture,
Always thinking out of the box.

If Dubai was a lady,
She would be a symbol of hope,
That regardless of one's background,
Fearless resolve begets success.


Dubai has achieved a lot considering the facts that it is a desert city with no natural resources or oil. It is a beautiful, futuristic and visionary city. I know for a fact that if Dubai was a lady, it would be a lady everyone, including me, would want to be friends with.
